IToyStudio.com 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 IToyStudio Legit? Not from we saw on the site. In this article we’ll do our best to help show you just why we believe IToyStudio.com 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 IToyStudio.com, 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 IToyStudio!
- IToyStudio’s site is around or less than one month old.
- There is a website or two that looks like IToyStudio.
- IToyStudio is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.
- IToyStudio is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
- IToyStudio has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
IToyStudio Looks Like Other Sites?
When we first looked at IToyStudio, we knew something wasn’t right because of the way the scammer had made the site. Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) have noticed that it is very similar to another site. A screenshot below shows the other site:
We’ve looked into hundreds of sites, and have found several ones that look almost exactly (if not exactly) as IToyStudio.
Now, of course, just because a site looks very similar to another site doesn’t exactly make it fraudulent. However, if you do have two sites that look almost the same, why else would you have both except to scam people?
The Heavily Discounted Prices
Most likely, you came to IToyStudio because you saw that they seemed to have products on their site for a fairly low price. Well, as you know, looks can be deceiving.
As you can see in the above screenshot, every single product that they have listed on their site seems to be discounted down in some way.
Whether it’s a refrigerator or a tent (or something in between), each one of these items are marked down fairly significantly. Which makes the whole site look pretty sketchy.
Sadly, many will fall for this trick that scammers use often. A scammer will make a site with high discounts, advertise it on a social media platform, and people will flock to it like ducks to water.
If a site has discounts, and each product is the same exact price as each other, then it is most definitely a scam. There shouldn’t even be a question about it being legitimate.
But that is not all that we found on this site either.
IToyStudio: The Fake Lego Shop
When you come to a website, you have to trust nothing, and double check everything. And that’s just what we did. If you scroll around on their site, you should find that IToyStudio.com claims that Lego is the one who owns this store.
Is this site called Lego? (The answer is probably no.) If the answer is no, then who exactly is Lego, and why are they claiming to be the owner of this site?
This is sadly a typical ploy by scammers to make you believe they are a legit company. If you were to look up Lego, you would find that they are more than likely a legit company that sells some sort of popular brand. But, if you go to Lego’s website, it would take you to their site, and not to this site. This site isn’t related to Lego in any way.
Not only that, but IToyStudio.com is also using copyright material from Lego. The logo on their site, and other images are all images that are owned by Lego. To do business under them would mean that IToyStudio.com is running an illegal operation (which they are doing, by the way).
But that isn’t all that they are doing.
IToyStudio.com’s Whois Info
Every site, when it is created, goes on public record as to when exactly it was created. And you know the great thing about public records – they are free for all to take a look at!
When you looked up just when exactly this site was created, you’ll come to find out that it was created rather recently (as of generating this report):
This is a common ploy that scammers will use. They will create a new website, and make it appear like its been around for a long while, so that people will think they are a legitimate company.
Because of IToyStudio.com being created rather recently, it adds to the argument that there is potential for IToyStudio to be fraudulent.
The Fraudulent Email Address
We love emails, as you may notice from previous articles that we’ve written about. And this site is no different. It took us a while to find an email, but when we did, we found that it was indeed one that we had seen elsewhere.
For a while now, we’ve been finding more and more sites that have been coming from someone who uses the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. And that email address has been linked to all kinds of fraudulent websites:
As you can see from above, there are numerous things that this scammer has been a part of. They’ve probably had a few social media scams, as well as scamming with PayPal too. They’ve even had more than couple of scam websites they have been behind!
Because of all this, this site, IToyStudio.com, isn’t going to be much different from all the rest that this scammer has been part of. IToyStudio.com is a fraudulent website, and one that we personally wouldn’t recommend that you use.
Fraud Is, Sadly, Always Around.
So, to reiterate what we said above:
- IToyStudio is running some sketchy discounts
- IToyStudio appears to be trying to pretend that they are Lego
- IToyStudio.com’s website looks like another website
- IToyStudio.com is still a very young site
- IToyStudio uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites
All in all, we definitely would not recommend anyone to take IToyStudio.com seriously. They are more than likely a fraudulent website, and care nothing for the honest, hardworking people. All they care about is to scam people out of their money.
