ToyVoy.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 ToyVoy Legit? Not from we saw on the site. In this article we’ll do our best to help show you just why we believe ToyVoy.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 ToyVoy.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 ToyVoy!
- ToyVoy has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
- ToyVoy is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
- ToyVoy is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.
ToyVoy.com’s Shady Discounts
When going to ToyVoy.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.
ToyVoy: The Fake Lego Shop
ToyVoy.com claims to sell certain brand products. As most of you know, Lego is (most-likely) a major producer of quality products that they offer. It’s a popular brand among the circle that Lego is in. But, when you take a closer look at ToyVoy’s site, you find that they aren’t only selling Lego
products, but they are also claiming to be Lego as well.
It should be obvious to most that this isn’t the official store of Lego, right? Their site doesn’t really seem up-to-date as what an official site would look like, as well as their domain name, ToyVoy, doesn’t exactly seem like it is
Lego. But, even though these things aren’t so, they are still claiming to be Lego.
If you take a look at the screenshot above, you will notice that they have as a logo, or as words, Lego’s brand. If that isn’t enough proof, then we’re not sure what is. But, there actually is even more proof.
If you look at the bottom of their website, called the footer, you should find that they copyright their site. Now, copyrighting a site isn’t anything unusual. What is unusual is who they claim is doing the copyrighting!
As noted in the above image, the name they put on their copyright notice is “Lego”. ToyVoy is without question trying to impersonate the official Lego website.
But what does this all really mean?
It means that the site we’re looking at is illegally pretending to be someone that they really aren’t. It means that ToyVoy is trying to make anyone on their site think that they are the real Lego site and store. And that is just plain wrong.
Often-times, scammers will set up websites and try to impersonate a specific brand, or a particular product. People will come to their site, thinking it’s legit, purchase from it, and lose their money without ever getting anything that they ordered.
While we can’t say with certainty that Lego’s products aren’t legit, we can say that they are definitely doing something illegal and because of that, they shouldn’t be trusted or used.
Can We Prove ToyVoy.com Is A Scam?
While we were looking at the site, we actually found something that helped confirm our suspicions that this site was a scam.
We found an email address that was in some way connected with this site. This email was one that we had seen before, and one that we were pretty familiar with.
What’s interesting about this email address is that we’ve seen it so many different times that we can’t remember how many (it’s been quite a few…)!
And if we do a quick search on firstname.lastname@example.org, we find that there are several other fraudulent websites that seem to be out there by this same scammer.
So, this site and the owners of it, seem to have been doing this for a while. Which makes it no surprise that ToyVoy.com is a scam.
ToyVoy.com Is Indeed A Scam!
So, to reiterate what we said above:
- ToyVoy is running some sketchy discounts.
- ToyVoy appears to be trying to pretend that they are Lego.
- ToyVoy uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites.
All in all, ToyVoy is a site that we would highly recommend you don’t purchase from, nor trust the scammer behind it. You’ll only be left with headache and heartache.
