Have you received a credit charge from Farloshop on your bank statement that you’re unsure of? Lots of people have reported unauthorised charges from Farlo Shop. This article shed a light on what Farloshop is, why you’re seeing a charge from there, and how to prevent future charges.

What is Farloshop?

Farloshop is the payment alias used by a handful of scam websites that claim to sell products online. These websites often display huge discounts. Tempted by the low prices, people order from the store, but rather than deliver the item, the shady sites overcharges them.

How The Farloshop Scam Store Operates

Impersonates a known brand

The scam starts with impersonation of known brands like Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Northface Jacket, Harley-Davidson, Kay Jewelers, etc. They do this to gain people’s trust.

Displays Unrealistic Discounts

Farloshop scam uses massive discounts on jerseys, purses, jewelries, bags, etc as a bait to get customers. The scammers send people links of flash sales either via text messages or email. People are always spurred to make a purchase when they think they’re getting a great deal, especially when the discount is higher than elsewhere.

Convinces Buyers with Fake Reviews

On the website there are comments and reviews from people posing as satisfied customers. However, the profiles are fake and the reviews were scripted to create a sense of authenticity.

Creates a False Sense of Product Scarcity

By promoting limited-time offers the scammers create a sense of urgency, thereby motivating people to take advantage of the offer before the timer runs out. This is just another trick to increase sales. There’s really no time limit. When the stipulate time ends, the count down timer starts from beginning.

Scams Customers and Absconds

After getting people to place an order, the scammers behind Farloshop delivers an inferior cheap item or nothing at all, then continue to charge buyers.
