ToySloy.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 ToySloy Legit? Not from we saw on the site. In this article we’ll do our best to help show you just why we believe ToySloy.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 ToySloy.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 ToySloy!
- ToySloy is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.
- ToySloy is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
- There is a website or two that looks like ToySloy.
- ToySloy’s site is around or less than one month old.
- ToySloy has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
Discounted Prices Usually Mean Scam Products
Sites that claim to have discounts should be ones that you are very skeptical of. You’ll notice on ToySloy.com that they have many products 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?)
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 ToySloy.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 ToySloy.com had.
Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) be able to see that ToySloy 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!
What Do Public Records Reveal?
Whenever someone registers a domain name, they do it through a company. Now, that company saves the date when that domain was registered. Not only that, but they put that date in public places for people to look up.
What this all means is that you, the reader could go, and check when ToySloy.com was first registered. And if you were to do that, you would find that the site was registered fairly recently, as shown below:
If ToySloy was created that soon, it’s entirely possible that it’s a scam. Many times, scammers will create a website, run it for several months, and then shut it down.
Now, as always, we’re not saying that this in and of itself proves that ToySloy.com is a scam. But what it does mean is that you should be hesitant as use this site, since it hasn’t been around long enough to know whether it is legit.
Impersonation Of Lego
When you go to the site, it becomes clearer that ToySloy.com is claiming to be some store called Lego. Now, for those who don’t know, Lego is a well-known store that sells some sort of brand-name product.
What’s even more interesting is that Lego has their own store and website. So, why exactly is ToySloy.com claiming to be Lego?
Claiming to be a store when you really aren’t isn’t something that is legal. You can’t open up a store and pretend to be a popular brand of clothing.
If you see something like that on the internet, then it’s best not to work with them, and to report them immediately. They’re doing something that only hurts them and the company they are trying to impersonate.
Now, if a store is impersonating a company, that doesn’t make them completely a scam. Yes, if they are copying some other company that does mean that they are doing something illegal, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t receive anything from them.
Many times, these types of sites will spring up, offer discounts, and actually send you a product. The only problem will be that the product you receive is actually just a knock-off brand product that was made from China (or some other cheap place), which is why they can sell it so inexpensive.
Either way, if you are looking for authentic, Lego brand products, then ToySloy.com isn’t the place to look for it.
Can We Prove ToySloy.com Is A Scam?
So, you may be sitting there, and thinking all the above information just isn’t convincing enough for you to call this a scam. But what if we said that we could prove that this site is a scam?
What if we said that we had proof that ToySloy.com has been connected with other fraudulent websites?
If you take a look at the above screenshot, you’ll notice that it is an image of an email address. Nothing looks wrong with that email, does it?
However, that email address is connected to several other fraudulent websites.
As you see in the screenshot below, that email address, and thus ToySloy.com, has been connected with several websites running scams:
So there isn’t really anything else to say except that ToySloy.com is indeed a scam, and one that we wouldn’t recommend you use!
ToySloy.com Is Indeed A Scam!
So, to reiterate what we said above:
- ToySloy is running some sketchy discounts
- ToySloy appears to be trying to pretend that they are Lego
- ToySloy.com’s website looks like another website
- ToySloy.com is still a very young site
- ToySloy uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites
In the end, you will only lose money if you buy through ToySloy.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.
