How to Spot a Fake Website or Advertisement:

    • Scrutinize the URL: Carefully examine the website URL to ensure it directs you to Watch out for misspellings or URLs containing variations of our brand name combined with additional terms. Always verify that you're on the correct domain before divulging any sensitive information.
    • Watch for Red Flags: Look out for signs of poor quality such as spelling errors, design inconsistencies, pixelated images, and missing crucial pages like "About Us" or "Contact Information".
      • Check Domain Age: Authentic websites tend to have a longer online presence, whereas fake ones often disappear quickly. You can use the Whois Lookup domain tracker as a way to check how long it’s been active. Enter the website’s URL and you’ll be able to see details such as the owner’s organization name, country of registration, and age of the domain.
      • When clicking on an ad, make sure the URL is at the top of the page.


    If You've Placed an Order on a Fraudulent Website:

      • Secure Your Credit: Initiate a credit freeze to prevent unauthorized access to your credit file, making it harder for scammers to open new accounts in your name.
      • Strengthen Account Security: Update your passwords across all accounts and enable two-factor authentication where available to bolster security measures.
      • Notify Financial Institutions: Inform your bank and credit card companies' fraud departments about the breach, prompting them to assist in closing compromised accounts and issuing new cards.

      • Report Identity Theft: File an official report with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) via to dispute unauthorized transactions and begin the process of restoring your credit.
