ToyBon.com Review: Is ToyBon Fraudulent? (Scam Alert!)

You’re probably wondering why we think ToyBon is a scam, right? Maybe you liked something on the site, or the 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 ToyBon.com isn’t legit. And we’ll do it through the reasons below. 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!

This is an automated report on ToyBon.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 ToyBon!

Quick Review

  • ToyBon is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
  • ToyBon’s site is around or less than one month old.
  • ToyBon has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
  • There is a website or two that looks like ToyBon.
  • ToyBon is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.

Learn To Detect Scams

We’ve put together a video course on how to easily figure out if something is a scam or not. It shows clearly how you can tell whether a site is fraudulent!

Low Prices = Scammer Site?

When going to ToyBon.com, the site seems like a normal one. On their site, they claim to be a store that offers discounts and lower prices. So much lower that they claim you can save 30%-70% of the retail cost, or so it seems.

However, when you take a close look at their discounts, and their products for that matter, you’ll notice a common theme. And that theme is that every single product they list appears to be running a discount:

We’ve seen this enough times to know that this is a scam. If a site has that many products on their store for those low of prices, then it truly is a scam. There really is no need to investigate further about it.

You don’t purchase lawn-mowers, computer desks, or even beach chair sets for that low of a price (or whatever they’re selling on their site).

This is just a common ploy by scammers to get traffic to their site. People see low prices, go to the scammer’s site, purchase something (because they think they are getting a good deal), and lose money over it.

Now, like we said, we could stop our review there, and say that the site is indeed a scam. But, just because we’re convinced that it’s a scam, doesn’t necessarily mean that you, the reader, are convinced. So, it’s on the next issue with the site.

Similarities With Other Websites

We’ve looked at a large number of scam websites, and the more we look at, the more we see similarities between scam websites.

When we had originally looked at ToyBon.com, we immediately thought that it looked like a scam website, because we had reviewed another website or two that had the same exact type of display that ToyBon.com had.

Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) be able to see that ToyBon looks very similar to the site above (in the screenshot). They appeared to us nearly identical, in size and color, to that other site.

Because of this, we suspected that it was the same scammer behind these sites. Many times, scammers will open several sites, that resemble each other. Some go so far as to use the same contact info on each site!

When Was ToyBon created?

When someone goes to buy a domain name, they leave behind the exact date when they registered that domain, as well as when they last updated that domain. And all that information is publicly available for anyone wants to look at it.

As you can see above, the data says that they actually registered their domain rather recently. Which doesn’t bode well in a site’s ‘trust-factor’.

All sites, legit and scams, are usually not that ‘trustworthy’ until they are 6 months to a year old. It’s been proven that scam sites are on average significantly younger than legit sites.

Scammers will run a scam until it’s found out and no one purchase from it (which usually takes several months, depending on how they run their scam). And so because of that, ToyBon just isn’t exactly trustworthy yet.

Who Is Lego

As you can see from the above screenshot, ToyBon.com seems to be selling a certain brand, as well as a host of other things. Nothing is wrong with selling popular brands. 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 Lego copyright logo, and hosting it as their own. While ToyBon may not outright say it, they are giving the appearance as though they are Lego.

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.

The Email Connected With ToyBon.com

Most sites, when you create an account on their website, will send you an email, notifying you that you created an account. Some will do it to make sure you used a legit email address. Others will offer bonuses and discounts if you make an account. Still others just want to be friendly, and send you emails.

ToyBon.com should send you an email, just letting you know that you created an account, and that if you have any questions, you should feel free to email them.

What’s amazing is that email, or one that is found on the site is one we’ve seen before: cs1@customercenterhome.com

Now, you may not know who this email belongs to, nor what it’s connected to, but we do. This is an email that is used very often by a frequent scammer. We’ve probably written about other of their scam websites.

Doing a quick search for this email reveals that they’ve been doing this for a while now, and with quite a few sites.

The above list is just a few of the sites that you can find online.

Why does this scammer show who they really are by using the same email over and over? We really don’t know. Maybe they are lazy. Maybe it works best for them. Maybe they aren’t that smart(?).

We honestly have no clue, but are glad that they did, since it sure helps us pinpoint immediately that this site is a scam, and not one to be trusted.

ToyBon.com Is A Scam!

So, to reiterate what we said above:

  • ToyBon is running some sketchy discounts
  • ToyBon appears to be trying to pretend that they are Lego
  • ToyBon.com’s website looks like another website
  • ToyBon.com is still a very young site
  • ToyBon uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites

In the end, you will only lose money if you buy through ToyBon.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.
