Recently, through our contact form, we recieved a request about Thomsmall.com, and whether they were legit or not. We have since added it to our list of scam websites. And because we added it to our list, and seem to be getting more people looking at it, we decided to write a review about Thomsmall.com
Is Thomsmall a scam? Are they The Real Beats By Dre store? If the the title doesn’t answer those questions, then we’ll have to spell it out again. Yes, Thomsmall is indeed a scam, and no, they’re not the The Real Beats By Dre store. But let us explain why below!
Thomsmall.com And Beats By Dre
When you go to Thomsmall.com, you immediately should be able to tell that something just isn’t right about this site. And that is that they seem to be claiming that they are Beats By Dre.
Beats By Dre is a popular site that sells wireless headphones, and is owned by Apple. Doing a quick search on any search engine will show you the real site. And Thomsmall has nothing to do with that real site.
There are several indications that they’re trying to impersonate Beats By Dre. You’ll notice that in the screenshot above, they have a welcome notice saying “Beats by Dr. Dre Store”. They also seem to be using the same logo as Beats By Dre.
The red circle logo with the black ‘B’ in it is in fact part of Beats By Dre, which means that they own the copyright for it, and are the only ones that (should) officially do business with that logo.
But we guess Thomsmall.com doesn’t care that their doing something illegal, dishonest, and downright wrong. Thomsmall.com goes so far as to claim their copyright is from Dr. Dre as well!
If you were to hover over the copyright notice on their site, you would notice that the embedded link is going back to Thomsmall’s website. If it were actually copyright by who they claim it is, it should go back to the official Beats By Dre store.
So, right off the bat, we can see that Thomsmall.com is clearly lying about who they are, and just what company they are a part of.
Don’t Be Deceived By Discounts!
Discounts aren’t a bad thing. In fact, we recommend that you find products with discounts, and spend less money when you can. But just because a site is claiming to have discounts doesn’t mean that you should believe them. Especially if they are a newer site.
Scammers love putting discounts on their sites. Because everyone wants something cheaper, when you have a discount for something popular, you’ll more than likely get a following very quickly.
There is something interesting about all these discounts that Thomsmall.com has on their website. And that is that on every page, all the products seem to have the same exact discount and price!
It’s not typical for all the products to be the same price, and for them to have the exact discount either. That’s just not the norm when it comes to these type of things.
So, when looking at these lower prices, you should immediately realize that something doesn’t look as legit as it should be. Discounts come because of supply and demand, because of overstock and understock. And it’s highly doubtful that all these are going to come out exactly the same.
Now, that isn’t to say that legit sites don’t do this – it’s just that more than often, a scammer’s site(s) will often have the same exact discount for all their products (why, we don’t know.)
So always be on the lookout of bogus discounts, and don’t be easily fooled by products with low prices.
Linking Fraudulent Websites Together
Scammers will often leave a trail of fraud and scam behind them. If you put enough pieces together, you can almost follow them through the previous months, and see exactly what they’ve been up to.
We decided to do some further investigating with this site, and tried to see if they would give us any other information. What we found told us that this site definitely wasn’t a site we wanted our audience to go to (besides for the fact that we already knew this due to Thomsmall impersonating Beats By Dre).
We received an email from Thomsmall.com, and found something very interesting within that email:
It was in that general email that told us how happy they were to have us join their store, and what the different pages were for. They gave an email, and said, if anyone needed more help, email them through that email address.
Strangely enough, that email address has been listed on other sites. Those other sites have be shown to be fraudulent. Which means, the owner of Thomsmall.com is going to be no different.
As you can see from the screenshot, the owner of Thomsmall.com is definitely not one who has been doing things legitimately. There are dozens of cases where they have been doing some sort of fraudulent scheme.
There really isn’t much more to say on the matter. Thomsmall.com can be linked to other sites that have been show to be fraudulent. And there is no way that Thomsmall is going to be different.
Is Thomsmall.com A Scam?
Thomsmall.com is indeed a scam, and the owner is indeed a scam artist. They’ve been operating fraudulent websites for a while now, and they won’t be stopping any time soon, unfortunately.
If you ever find a site that is trying to pretend to be another site, or is claiming to have discounts, then you always need to investigate further, and see if they are really legit. Spending that time researching will save you money and time, in the long run.
So all in all, we definitely wouldn’t recommend that you purchase from Thomsmall.com nor trust the owners behind the website.
On a side note, we weren’t sure how to pronounce Thomsmall.com’s website name. Is It Thom’s Mall, or Thom Small?
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 it’s 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!
