You’re probably here wondering why on earth someone would call Girastor.com a scam. Maybe you’ve purchased something from them. Or maybe you were interested in all those deals they seem to have, and decided to check out some other reviews before you actually purchased something.
We’re glad you did decide to take a look at this article, whatever your motive was for looking up this site. Because, we’ve found that Girastor is a site that isn’t legit, nor is one you really want to be shopping at. What exactly did we find, and how do we know?

- They don’t seem to answer any emails that are sent to them.
- The discounts on their site don’t appear to be legit and are very sketchy.
- They are linked to another fraudulent website.
Girastor.com’s Misspelling And Errors
Immediately, right off the bat of looking into this website, we knew something was wrong. And that was that Girastor.com spelled their domain name wrong!
If you take a look at the screenshot above, you’ll notice that they are calling themselves GIRASTORE. Or at least, that’s what the logo is saying. But on the domain itself, the URL, is saying Girastor (without the ‘e’ on the end).
Now, of course, these things happen, and sometimes when you register a domain, you can get things mixed up, and choose the wrong one to buy. So we can’t fault them too much for having an incorrect domain that doesn’t match their logo/brand name their operating under.
But we can fault them when we find other errors within their site.
It’s okay to copy something, or to find a draft of one of those important pages (like a Terms of Service, Refund Policy, etc). But when you don’t actually read over it, or edit it to fit your needs and your shop, then there is a problem.
Discounts Seem Cool, But…
Now, probably the main reason most people come to Girastor.com is because of their discounts. Maybe it was through some ad that you saw them, or another person posted something about them.
The strange thing with these discounts is that everything is exactly $14.95 dollars – and you save exactly $20 dollars. We don’t know about you and where you shop, but where we come from, that just isn’t the typical way to do discounts.
You don’t find a large collection of products, things that naturally go for several hundred dollars, to all be discounted to under $15 dollars.
This is just a ploy used by a scammer to get you to your site, and see if you will fall for their schemes. When you’ve taken a look at the number of websites that we have, you would know that this is a scam, and fraudulent website.
As the old adage goes, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
The Real Proof Is In the Contact Info!
If you are always curious to know who is behind a website, it’s always best to check their website, and see who exactly they claim they are.
We looked at Girastor.com’s contact page, and found a few things that we didn’t quite like.
The email address is pretty much your standard email for a shopping site – email@example.com didn’t seem like anything was wrong with it. That was until we emailed them.
You see, we emailed them about six days ago asking if they used PayPal for transaction purposes. We still haven’t received a reply from them yet (so much for their 24/7 customer service…).
So, if they don’t reply on something as simple as a question about PayPal, then what will happen when we have a much bigger concern about, say, a product missing?
The next best thing would be to go down the list of contact information, and call them, right?
Well, you could call them, or you could just look up the phone number before you do. Because if you did look up the phone number, you would find that it’s been linked to several other fraudulent websites:
Hmm. So, they don’t answer their emails, and they don’t have a legit-looking phone number. What should we do then (besides for calling them a scam)?
Well, maybe they actually have a legit address, right?
How about, maybe, no! We looked into their address, 1957 Somerset Ave Dallas, TX 75023 U.S.A, and found that it actually doesn’t appear to exist. Or at least, we’re not sure if it does.
When we plugged it into Mr. Google, we found that they thought the place was 1957 Somerset Ave Plano, TX 75023 U.S.A. Notice the difference between Plano and Dallas.
Even Girastor.com’s address doesn’t appear to be legit.
Girastor.com Is Indeed A Scam!
They are linked to other fraudulent websites through their phone number, they’re offering really low discounts, and they can’t even spell their domain name right!
Anything else to add to this list before calling it a scam?
In the end, you will only lose money if you buy through Girastor.com, since they don’t seem like the type who will actually send anything to you. They are a fraudulent company that shouldn’t be around and shouldn’t be promoted.
Avoid them, avoid their discounts, and through it all, you will avoid being scammed!
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.
Follow the link below and get our course for 50% off of its original price. It’s our way of trying to help out those who have been scammed before, and/or those who don’t have a lot of money to spend!
Thanks to Crystal for letting us know about this site, and asking if it was a scam.
