You’re probably wondering why we think Bodnc is indeed a scam, right? Maybe you liked the Adidas shoes they had, or the Nike products they were showing off. Or maybe, you’re just a curious person who likes to know about scams.
Whatever the case, we’re here to enlighten you on just why we believe Bodnc.com is indeed a scam. And we’ll do it through three simple reasons. Hopefully, by the end of this article, these reasons will stick with you, and you’ll be able to use them if you ever come across another fraudulent website!
- They are impersonating Nike.
- They are located at the same location as Sainsbury’s Local.
- They are connected with TCTRSP (A Scam Website).
Reason #1: Impersonation Of Nike
As you can see from the above screenshot, they seem to be selling Nike shoes, as well as a host of other things. Nothing is wrong with selling popular brands of footwear. In fact, if you can do it legally, then by all means, go ahead and sell it.
The thing here though is that they are using Nike’s copyright logo, and hosting it as their own. While Bodnc may not outright say it, they are giving the appearance as though they are Nike.
Using someone else’s logos and images, ones that they’ve copyrighted, is downright illegal and wrong. It not only hurts you personally, but also the person that you are pretending to be by taking away sales from them, and possibly tarnishing their good name.
On top of this, they don’t appear to have their site updated. They appear to be running a copyright notice of 2017 (which we’ll learn later actually appears somewhere else…).
Reason #2: Located With Sainsbury’s Local
As you can see from the above screenshot, Bodnc.com does give you some contact information, in the case you need to, well, get in contact with them. However, when we take a look at where they claim to be, we find that someone else has claimed that place also.
According to Google, Sainsbury’s Local is also located at 196 High St, Teddington, TW11 8HU, UK. And they seem to have been there longer (and with more reviews too):
Of course, one could argue that Sainsbury’s Local and Bodnc.com are somehow related. Although when you take a closer look at what Sainsbury’s Local is, it’s not likely to be true (Sainsbury’s Local does sell fruit and veggies after all…).
Scammers will often put in a fake address on their website, so that they appear to be authentic. And this is just another ploy by the people behind Bodnc.com to get you to fall for their scamming ways.
Also, when we searched for Bodnc.com’s phone number, we came to find Bodnc.com’s contact info through Google, and we found some more information about them:
As you can see above, there is an email address associated with Bodnc.com – service03(@)tradeng.onmicrosoft.com (they have nothing to do with the real Microsoft company).
We’ve actually seen that email address before, on other sites we’ve taken a look at. Those sites were scam websites. Which leads us to our third reason for why we know this site is a fraudulent one.
Reason #3: Connected With TCTRSP
About several weeks ago, we wrote an article detailing why we thought a site called Tctrsp.com was a scam. You can check it out here. In fact, we would recommend that you check the article out, because you’ll find some things very interesting.
For example, Tctrsp.com has the same exact location on their contact information as Bodnc.com. They also have the same copyright notice, and copyright image/logo. Fortunately, it appears that Tctrsp.com has been taken offline.
But is there a way that we can connect Bodnc.com with Tctrsp.com? Actually, there is.
We received an email from Bodnc.com after we were able to get into our account, and needed to reset our password. When we received it, we found that at the end, they signed it as Tctrsp:
Now, the above screenshot doesn’t mean much. For all we know, Tctrsp could stand for a common acronym that we just were familiar with – like Totally Caring Terrifically Respectable Scam-able Person!
So, Bodnc.com is clearly related to Tctrsp.com in some way. Our best guess is that after everyone realized that Tctrsp.com was a scam, the owners moved everything to a new domain – Bodnc.com.
Bodnc.com Is A Scam!
There’s no denying it – Bodnc.com is indeed a scam. They’re trying to impersonate Nike, try to be in the same location as Sainsbury’s Local, and connected with another fraudulent company.
All in all, it’s best to avoid Bodnc.com and any other look-a-like sites that are out there. You’ll only lose money and have headache after heartache if you do choose to try to purchase something from Bodnc.com.
Don’t Get Scammed Again!
We know what it’s like getting scammed – we’ve gotten scammed plenty of times. But because of this, we were able to find similarities between many scam websites.
We created a video course, How To Detect Online Scams, in which we explain these similarities and methods we use to check a website. And we’re happily able to offer it to you for a discounted price.
Unfortunately, we can’t really give you the money that you lost by being scammed (if you did get scammed). But we can give you our course for a cheaper and more affordable price.
