Formal dresses for school balls and proms can be expensive which is why shopping online for discounted and “cheap” formal dresses is usually a good idea but unfortunately there are also fake and counterfeit formal dresses websites that spoil the online shopping experience for shoppers. There are plenty of horror stories of girls finding their dream prom dress online, order it and when their dress arrives (in some cases, it doesn’t arrive at all!) it is a complete mess. The dress received is nothing like what the actual dress that was shown on the website. Furthermore, there is no way to return the dress or get a refund!
These fake websites often claim they sell DESIGNER formal dresses, prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses and wedding gowns at 80% off retail price. They display stunning and beautiful shots of the dresses on their websites and the prices are only a fraction of what the RRP is. How good is that! It just sounds too good to be true, and in actuality, it is. These websites do a fantastic job at luring customers in to buy with the attractive design and layout of their websites, stolen dress shots from the actual brand/designer and too good to be true prices. These fake formal dresses usually are made in China with exceptionally bad craftsmanship.
The deep discounts are a huge bait to get people to make a purchase but don’t be fooled. The people behind these websites know the prices are almost irresistible and take full advantage by advertising site-wide of all the special prices, discounts and savings you get by purchasing a dress from their company. Trying to save some money isn’t worth getting scammed by these counterfeit websites!
