Vanske.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 Vanske Legit? Not from we saw on the site. In this article we’ll do our best to help show you just why we believe Vanske.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 Vanske.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 Vanske!
- Vanske is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.
- Vanske’s site is around or less than one month old.
- Vanske has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
- Vanske is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
- There is a website or two that looks like Vanske.
Vanske.com Is Vans®?
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 Vanske.com claims that Vans® is the one who owns this store.
Is this site called Vans®? (The answer is probably no.) If the answer is no, then who exactly is Vans®, 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 Vans®, you would find that they are more than likely a legit company that sells some sort of popular brand. But, if you go to Vans®’s website, it would take you to their site, and not to this site. This site isn’t related to Vans® in any way.
Not only that, but Vanske.com is also using copyright material from Vans®. The logo on their site, and other images are all images that are owned by Vans®. To do business under them would mean that Vanske.com is running an illegal operation (which they are doing, by the way).
But that isn’t all that they are doing.
What Do Public Records Reveal?
Before we actually came to this site, we checked some free, public records on the site, just to see when it was registered and when it was last updated. Turns out that this specific domain was registered some time recently, making it an extremely young site.
As you’ll notice in the above screenshot, you’ll see that it hasn’t been long at all since Vanske.com has been created.
Scammers will often close down their website after a few months, because everyone has learned that it’s a scam. Because of Vanske.com because such a young site, there could be a possibility for it to be a scam.
Every site does have a start date – even legit ones. So, to suggest that Vanske is a scam only on the above info isn’t a wise thing to do.
However, if you add this to the other stuff we explain in this article, it does certainly add to the weight of the argument that this site is a scam.
Same Scam – Different Name?
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 Vanske.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 Vanske.com had.
Depending on how you viewed the site, you may (or may not) be able to see that Vanske 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!
Low Prices = Scammer Site?
Sites that claim to have discounts should be ones that you are very skeptical of. You’ll notice on Vanske.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?)
Linking Fraudulent Websites Together
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 Vanske.com is a scam.
Is Vanske Legit?
So, to reiterate what we said above:
- Vanske is running some sketchy discounts
- Vanske appears to be trying to pretend that they are Vans®
- Vanske.com’s website looks like another website
- Vanske.com is still a very young site
- Vanske uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites
In the end, from what we’ve found on the site, it does appear to be that Vanske is a scam and not legitimate.
