GN advertising - Dodgy Company

I’ve been “seeing” an advert on the right side of the page from a company called Flory Day for pretty looking tops. As I didn’t know the company I googled it for reviews.....Some of the worst I’ve read!

They seem to specialise in not answering enquiries, goods not as ordered, strange sizing.....and a severe reluctance to refund.

I am concerned that Grans may be ripped off like hundreds of other people have been. The company appears to be Australian but is actually Chinese.

Anybody else spotted rogue companies?

Yes, usually Chinese based.
I won't touch them simply because of the vast difference in size as their XL's are more like our sizes of 10 or a 12 or less even. Chinese women are tiny compared to Europeans.

There'll be a lot of ripping-off being done from companies trying to claw back their losses so we'll all have to be on our guards. If something looks/seems too good to be true, it certainly will be.

There’s many like this on FB too. A pity because the tops look lovely but, yes, awful reviews.,

You've obviously never seen my posts on GN in relation to these companies.
I contacted HQ many months ago. I have been banned on FB because of my comments on these companies.

They are still appearing on FB.
Zuckerberg should be ashamed. Fancy banning someone for alerting them to this.

I suppose you don't get to be a multi- billionaire by having any ethics.

Callistemon, it used to be said that rogues don't prosper-----how times have changed, eh ?
