Is NoraCora a Scam or is it Legit? See the Online Store Customer Review

I purchased two shirts and a pair of earrings from NoraCora located at Each was shipped individually. The shirts were not as represented. They were poor quality and clingy, not loose-fitting as shown in their advertisement. I contacted NoraCora and their response was to offer me a 15% discount, saying that I could use the savings for alterations. If I chose to return the items it was my responsibility to send them back to China.

They made me aware that to do so can be very expensive and that they could also incur a duty or custom charge. Checking I found it can be over $30.00 for package 1lb or less. Should I decide to return that they would evaluate the items to see if they qualify and then get back to me.

I did purchase through PayPal. They advised me to return the items to China and wait for PayPal’s response once they here from the people in China. My concern is this …there is a possibility that the package could get lost in transit, or they could make up a story as to why they didn’t find the return acceptable. These items were never worn. It’s also worrisome with what is going on in this country today between the US and China .All in all I could end up not only paying for the items, but also an additional fee on top of that for the return shipping.

I would advise anyone who buys anything on line to check for a phone number, make sure that it is a company here in the US and has no affiliation with a foreign country, and for heaven sake check the reviews. These companies show up on Facebook. They do a very nice job presenting the product, but that is not what you get. This applies to wig sales also. Same bait, same story for those coming from China .

Noracora is a complete scam. Spent $188 - what I received was nothing like the pictures online. Very low quality. I wanted to return them - and found out it would cost $344 to ship to China. They offered a pittance of a refund $27 - a complete scam - they know they are sending you garbage and that you have no reasonable way to return the garbage for a refund. DO NOT FALL FOR IT!

I purchased two summer dresses from this company. I ordered and paid for $42.57 for the two items. So far I have not received my dresses and only promises from the company. Obviously they kept my money. I called a phone number they have and its not working. They gave me a tracking number which does not appear at USPS.

I will not buy anything from this company or any other that appears on Facebook. This is a real SCAM!

On May 2, 2020, I purchased 5 items from NoraCora.Com for $84.12. I received an email on May 11 stating that the items had shipped but I didn't think it would take a month to receive. Upon tracking the order, I learned it was at the post office but that was not true. After several attempts to contact them about my 'lost' shipment, I was told they would reply via email within 24 hours. By May 23, all I had were empty promises.

I escalated to PayPal for a refund on June 23 and once the case was opened, NoraCora continued with their empty promises. I did receive another email stating that they would contact me within 24 hours.

On July 15, I received one item and the next day four items. None of the items were as advertised. The pictures in their ads are deceptive so buyer beware. Each item is of very poor quality, I will just wear them to clean the house. The 'linen' pants and blouses are of low grade, very flimsy quality. Based on what I endured to receive these items, It wasn't worth my time and energy to return them.

I always check customer reviews before buying anything, don't know why I didn't this time. When I did check out the reviews, customers were writing the same review as I just wrote, 'Scam; they take you money and you have to involve mediator in order to resolve issues; items are poor quality'. But on their site, ironically, all the 5 star reviews were from gmail accounts.

I'm writing this because maybe I can save you from the agony of dealing with these people. They advertise beautiful, sophisticated women's clothing, that's the hook, and if you receive the merchandise you order, you will probably be as disappointed as I am.

Today is 6/18/20: I have an open dispute with Noracora via PayPal currently. I placed an order in 5/5/20 and they immediately withdrew money from my account but to date I still have no solid evidence that my items have actually shipped.

I made purchases 6 weeks in advance for a vacation which has now come and gone. Once I started to become suspicious I began trying to contact customer service for information - no reply. I sent multiple emails to customer service for support but never received a response until I involved a 3rd party for mediation. Initially the emails I received were not specific to my issue and listed a wide variety of vague excuses for why shipping was delayed, however once the mediation process began rolling with PayPal I was finally given tracking numbers (one for in China, and another for once it arrived at U.S. customs) that don't work or tell me where the package is in transit - just where it is not: it hasn't reached customs in San Francisco as of 5/18/20 and hasn't been updated to date).

Because PayPal encouraged me to try to mediate with the seller to settle this matter I tried to be reasonable and followed this advice: big mistake because it gave the company more time to delay and utilize unnecessary delay tactics. The only response I kept receiving from this company was to tell me to be patient, and they continued to send the useless tracking numbers until I realized this could drag on for a very long time without resolution and me out $115.00.

I didn't realize until after my problems began that Noracora lists a 10 business day processing window (i.e. 12 days provided there are no holidays in that particular line up of days) and a 25 business day shipping window (31 days, again provided there are no holidays in the line up, which there was) bringing expected arrival to 43 days, however we are now on day #48 currently and no items in sight.

I officially elevated the case to a dispute on 6/13/20 requesting a full refund but now the company has initiated radio silence (they have until 7/2/20 to respond to PayPal and I believe they intend to continue to delay and take every day available to them).

Today while looking at my order on the Noracora website (which still says processing by the way on day #48) I realized that the review section is nonfunctional and thus has zero ratings for their clothing (how did I miss that?).

I wish I bothered to research this company before doing business with them but honestly I never expected this to happen. No one appreciates being ripped off or deceived, as a result of this rather unfortunate experience I will no doubt be researching online companies I have never done business with in future before considering entrusting them with payment - including how long shipping is expected to be. How sad is it that people can't just be honest in their business practices and dishonest companies that don't readily reveal that they are in another country and therefore not subject to sanction can continue to rip off plenty of people every single day.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
