I know that most of you won't be fooled into buying from these sites being advertised on GN.
I have contacted HQ several times about one site in particular: IrisRuby. It went down for a while but now it's back.

Another one is up now:Floryday. These people are some of the worst scammers on the internet.

If you have been tempted to buy, and are a member of FB, check them out there. You will see the truth.

I'm not on fb, but if you say beware I will. Thanks!

The only one I can see is called Modlily.

MerylStreep Mon 13-Jan-20 20:12:59

Part of the same company.

Thanks MerylStreep

I must say I was tempted to take a look but hadn't as yet.

GNHQ - can you be more aware and stop this if you are being invaded by scammers.

Thank you.

It took 2 emails to HQ to get IrisLilly taken down. They assured me that they had been removed but they still keep popping up.

There are a lot of vulnerable people who could get scammed.
Even paying by PayPal you won't get your money back.

Oh, thanks for the warning.

The adverts came up immediately I opened this thread!

Callistemon Mon 13-Jan-20 20:56:34

Is that another one?

I was tempted by the knitwear.

MerylStreep Mon 13-Jan-20 21:24:32

Just looked that on up. Another scammer. People are scathing about them.
Why can't HQ look these people up before they take their money ( for advertising on GN)
You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes, it's all there on FB.

I always google any clothing shop I haven't heard of, even if I am not thinking of using them and every one advertising on GN is a dud.

Surely anyone thinking about buying online from an unknown supplier checks them out first.

shock thank you very much for this merylstreep I have been wondering as their clothes look so lovely but something (price) made me hold back!

Callistemon Mon 13-Jan-20 23:32:50

IrisRuby is back, lurking on the right hand side

Thank you Meryl.
I had quite an exchange with Floryday to be refunded for two very low quality tops. Got my money ... but it was a tedious experience.

It’s useful to hear others views on Irisruby. Their clothes look so pretty that even my partner noticed them and offered to buy me a jacket from there. I advised him not to ... just had a bad feeling about the great look of the clothes vs the low prices.
We steered clear ...

I thought some of the knitwear on Damensein looked rather attractive so I did look on the website but it seemed too cheap to be good quality.

Callistemon Mon 13-Jan-20 23:54:15

NewChic is back!!

BBbevan Tue 14-Jan-20 09:54:42

Is Shein another,? Pretty dresses for a pittance. I think not !!

In order to be tempted by these offers, you have to see them.

Install Adblock.

I didn't even know there were ads on GN.
Or FB for that matter, well I knew they existed but I never see them
