We received a contact form request asking us about a site called Conbt.com and what we thought of it. When we took our initial look at it, we immediately surmised that it was a scam, because of the way the site was laid out (more details on that later).
Conbt.com is a site run by a scammer who has his hands deep into the whole scamming realm. We’ve run into him multiple times, and it doesn’t appear that he’s yet to give up his scamming ways.
- Conbt is impersonating a legit brand name – Converse
- Conbt is running low prices and discounts without explaining why
- Conbt is connected with three email address that have been traced to other fraudulent websites
Conbt: The Fake Converse Shop
The very first thing that we find on the site is that Conbt is pretending to be Converse, a popular shoe brand that is now owned by Nike.
If you take a look at the above screenshot, you can see clearly that they are trying to pretend that they are Converse, since they show the logo, and the name right on the top of their site.
If a site ever claims to be a certain brand, and they don’t have the same domain as the brand (especially popular, well-known brands), then it is more than likely a scam.
And Conbt.com is no different.
Conbt is using Converse’s copyrighted images, as well as their logos to promote their scam. What their doing is illegal, immoral, and down right wrong.
But, being an impersonation website isn’t the only thing that shows them as being a scam.
The Heavily Discounted Prices
Sites that claim to have discounts should be ones that you are very skeptical of. You’ll notice on Conbt that they have many shoes marked down nearly 50%.
If a site doesn’t give a good reason as to why they have discounts, then it’s better to not give in to the urge to purchase whatever product you are look at.
Scammers love to use discounts and low prices to bring in traffic to their site. Many people will think, “It’s only $10, $20, $30 dollars that I’m going to lose if it is a scam. So what do I have to lose?”
Unfortunately, the reason why some of these scammers are still around is because of people who give up $30 dollars. Get 50 people to give up that much money in one scam, and the scammer already has $1500 just from that one website.
Now, don’t get us wrong. Just because a site has discounts on it doesn’t mean that it’s a scam. But what we are saying is that if they don’t give any good reason as to why they are selling products for such a low price, then they are best to be avoided.
Sites that have low prices are sites that you should make sure to look into and see if they are truly a scam (which is why you are here, right?)
Conbt Using The Same Theme As Other Scams
We know, it’s strange that we can tell whether a website is a scam by looking at its design. But it is actually partly true.
When we first looked at Conbt, we knew that it was a scam because of the way the scammer had made the site. Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) have noticed the gray side bars. A screenshot above helps show them.
We’ve looked into hundreds of sites, and have found several fraudulent ones that use the same exact theme as Conbt.
Now, you definitely do need to be careful judging a site by its design. But Conbt.com is a very unique design. We have yet to find any other legit site that has the same layout as theirs.
Now, of course, we could just end the review here, because we know that this site is indeed a scam. However, just because we know with certainty that this site is a scam, doesn’t make it that the reader will be certain it’s a scam.
So do we have any proof that they are actually scamming people?
Yes, we do, in a round about way.
The Fraudulent Email Address
For whatever reason, this scammer loves to use the same email address over and over again. You can tell more about a site by the email they use than by nearly anything else on the actual site.
If you go to Conbt and scroll all the way down to the footer, you’ll find three email addresses that the owner added. We have a screenshot of them above.
You’ll notice that in the screenshot, we’ve highlighted one of them, Support@jdonline.info.
We’ve come across that email address so many times, we honestly can’t count the number. But each time we have, we’ve only found one scam website after another.
As you can see above, that email address has been connected to dozens of fraudulent websites and scams. When it comes to scamming people, they definitely know what they are doing.
Interestingly enough, when we looked up the other two email address, we found that they also are connected with several other fraudulent websites as well.
In the end, all three email address say the same thing: Conbt is a scam, and one that you shouldn’t use or trust.
Conbt Is A Fake Converse Shop!
There really is no denying it – Conbt is a fake Converse store. They are using copyrighted logos and images, running sketchy discounts, and don’t appear to be afraid to put their fraudulent email addresses out on display for everyone to see.
All in all, Conbt is a site that we would highly recommend you don’t purchase from, nor trust the scammer behind it. You’ll only be left with headache and heartache.
