Is outerdress.com a legit website?
On the side bar of my Facebook an ad for outerdress.com popped up. They have a couple of wedding dresses I really like and they are so cheap! I was just wondering if this website is legit and if their dresses are quality. Thanks! :)5 months ago - 2 answers
That is a fake website pretending to sell cheap merchandise.
Any site that advertises merchandise cheaper than the official manufacture's website is a fake site shipping gosh awful crappy knock-offs or simply collecting cash and not even bothering to ship fakes.
The pictures on the site look like the real merchandise because those pictures ARE of the official merchandise. Those pictures were stolen from the official manufacture's website. If you receive anything at all, which is doubtful, it will not resemble those pretty pictures at all.
The one, lone payment option says it all, paypal. The credit card icons are just there for show, that site does not accept credit cards, only anonymous cash payments.
Paypal can only get your money back if there is money left in the scammer's paypal-linked bank account. Scammers know this and will immediately withdrawal your money and disappear. No money in the scammer's paypal-linked bank account means absolutely no possibility of refund for you.
In all seriousness, when something goes wrong, what will you do? Send an email that is ignored and blocked? Send chat requests until you are ip banned? Call internationally and speak fluent Chinese?
The UPS, TNT and DHL icons are there only to take up space, that site only ships with EMS, the Chinese post office, good luck getting the "tracking number" they give you to work on the EMS website. You will need even more luck trying to contact EMS when your tracking stops and your "package" is lost somewhere.
You could then be really lucky, your "package" is discovered, seized by "customs" and all you need to do is pay even more money via Western Union or moneygram to the "custom's official" who uses a free email address just like that site has a free email address as its contact information.
Free email addresses are easy to open and close completely anonymously.

You saw that it's a Chinese site?, mentioned in their About Us as well as the site registration.
The photos they show are stolen from various designers and don't accurately represent the knockoff they would ship to you.
Here's the first wedding dress they show
The Google similar image search (the little camera icon) turns up numerous sites using these images.
Their factory photos also appear on OuterInner.com
