AsicsStores.club came to us recently through one way or another. When we looked at it initially, we found several errors in the site the concluded to us that they were indeed a scam website.
Is AsicsStores Legit? Not from we saw on the site. In this article we’ll do our best to help show you just why we believe AsicsStores.club isn’t an authentic shop, nor why they should be trusted. Hopefully this review will help you think twice before purchasing through stores like these.
This is an automated report on AsicsStores.club, so our apologies if it doesn’t come out exactly right or sounds a little too generic (or vague). If we get enough people interested, we will write a more detailed article about AsicsStores!
- AsicsStores has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
- AsicsStores is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
- AsicsStores’s site is around or less than one month old.
- AsicsStores is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.
- There is a website or two that looks like AsicsStores.
AsicsStores.club’s Whois Info
When someone goes to buy a domain name, they leave behind the exact date when they registered that domain, as well as when they last updated that domain. And all that information is publicly available for anyone wants to look at it.
As you can see above, the data says that they actually registered their domain rather recently. Which doesn’t bode well in a site’s ‘trust-factor’.
All sites, legit and scams, are usually not that ‘trustworthy’ until they are 6 months to a year old. It’s been proven that scam sites are on average significantly younger than legit sites.
Scammers will run a scam until it’s found out and no one purchase from it (which usually takes several months, depending on how they run their scam). And so because of that, AsicsStores just isn’t exactly trustworthy yet.
Discounted Prices Usually Mean Scam Products
When going to AsicsStores.club, the site seems like a normal one. On their site, they claim to be a store that offers discounts and lower prices. So much lower that they claim you can save 30%-70% of the retail cost, or so it seems.
However, when you take a close look at their discounts, and their products for that matter, you’ll notice a common theme. And that theme is that every single product they list appears to be running a discount:
We’ve seen this enough times to know that this is a scam. If a site has that many products on their store for those low of prices, then it truly is a scam. There really is no need to investigate further about it.
You don’t purchase lawn-mowers, computer desks, or even beach chair sets for that low of a price (or whatever they’re selling on their site).
This is just a common ploy by scammers to get traffic to their site. People see low prices, go to the scammer’s site, purchase something (because they think they are getting a good deal), and lose money over it.
Now, like we said, we could stop our review there, and say that the site is indeed a scam. But, just because we’re convinced that it’s a scam, doesn’t necessarily mean that you, the reader, are convinced. So, it’s on the next issue with the site.
AsicsStores: The Fake Asics Shop
AsicsStores.club claims to sell certain brand products. As most of you know, Asics is (most-likely) a major producer of quality products that they offer. It’s a popular brand among the circle that Asics is in. But, when you take a closer look at AsicsStores’s site, you find that they aren’t only selling Asics products, but they are also claiming to be Asics as well.
It should be obvious to most that this isn’t the official store of Asics, right? Their site doesn’t really seem up-to-date as what an official site would look like, as well as their domain name, AsicsStores, doesn’t exactly seem like it is Asics. But, even though these things aren’t so, they are still claiming to be Asics.
If you take a look at the screenshot above, you will notice that they have as a logo, or as words, Asics’s brand. If that isn’t enough proof, then we’re not sure what is. But, there actually is even more proof.
If you look at the bottom of their website, called the footer, you should find that they copyright their site. Now, copyrighting a site isn’t anything unusual. What is unusual is who they claim is doing the copyrighting!
As noted in the above image, the name they put on their copyright notice is “Asics”. AsicsStores is without question trying to impersonate the official Asics website.
But what does this all really mean?
It means that the site we’re looking at is illegally pretending to be someone that they really aren’t. It means that AsicsStores is trying to make anyone on their site think that they are the real Asics site and store. And that is just plain wrong.
Often-times, scammers will set up websites and try to impersonate a specific brand, or a particular product. People will come to their site, thinking it’s legit, purchase from it, and lose their money without ever getting anything that they ordered.
While we can’t say with certainty that Asics’s products aren’t legit, we can say that they are definitely doing something illegal and because of that, they shouldn’t be trusted or used.
Same Scam – Different Name?
We’ve looked at a large number of scam websites, and the more we look at, the more we see similarities between scam websites.
When we had originally looked at AsicsStores.club, we immediately thought that it looked like a scam website, because we had reviewed another website or two that had the same exact type of display that AsicsStores.club had.
Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) be able to see that AsicsStores looks very similar to the site above (in the screenshot). They appeared to us nearly identical, in size and color, to that other site.
Because of this, we suspected that it was the same scammer behind these sites. Many times, scammers will open several sites, that resemble each other. Some go so far as to use the same contact info on each site!
The Fraudulent Email Address
Most sites, when you create an account on their website, will send you an email, notifying you that you created an account. Some will do it to make sure you used a legit email address. Others will offer bonuses and discounts if you make an account. Still others just want to be friendly, and send you emails.
AsicsStores.club should send you an email, just letting you know that you created an account, and that if you have any questions, you should feel free to email them.
What’s amazing is that email, or one that is found on the site is one we’ve seen before: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, you may not know who this email belongs to, nor what it’s connected to, but we do. This is an email that is used very often by a frequent scammer. We’ve probably written about other of their scam websites.
Doing a quick search for this email reveals that they’ve been doing this for a while now, and with quite a few sites.
The above list is just a few of the sites that you can find online.
Why does this scammer show who they really are by using the same email over and over? We really don’t know. Maybe they are lazy. Maybe it works best for them. Maybe they aren’t that smart(?).
We honestly have no clue, but are glad that they did, since it sure helps us pinpoint immediately that this site is a scam, and not one to be trusted.
We Don’t Recommend AsicsStores.club!
So, to reiterate what we said above:
- AsicsStores is running some sketchy discounts
- AsicsStores appears to be trying to pretend that they are Asics
- AsicsStores.club’s website looks like another website
- AsicsStores.club is still a very young site
- AsicsStores uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites
If you do choose to purchase from this site, you will be left with, well, nothing. More than likely, they won’t send anything to you, and you’ll be left with no money. And that’s not a fun thing, is it?
