If you’re ever unsure of a website being fake, stay away from it. That’s the best case scenario

Usually if they have deals too good to be true, be wary of it lol. I was scammed by such a website many years ago, and by the time I realized what'd happened the website disappeared and I no longer could contact them through email. I never received what I ordered and lost about $75.

I probably should've pursued it somehow but, I was very young at the time and had no idea how to do any of that.

Anyway... if you're ever unsure about a website, I'd recommend doing a search for it in a search engine along with reviews or "is this website safe" in the search entry. I've avoided some sites by doing that, although it isn't always a guarantee. I wouldn't be surprised if some places manipulate or post fake reviews to make their site look good.

TL;DR version is, if it looks shady it probably is.

Normally I'm an advocate for supporting smaller business but online you just can't be sure.

There are usually some telltale signs, the main one is a badly done website that has very little effort put into it. Usually (I won't say always) companies that have very professional, well-made and easy to use websites are going to be more trustworthy, because that's a business who cares about their image. If the website is very generic-looking and not designed distinctively, has important features missing, is written in poor English (or written poorly in another language) these can be suspect.

Reviews are neither here nor there, since they can fake them, or else people can just write stupid things, and people don't even have the same standards of service.

I did a quick google search and some people said that the sight is real and will mail out the items you bought, but the items are knockoffs.
