Is Shoptimized a Scam or is it Legitimate?

Shoptimized is not a scam, but its logo is being used illegally by fake and fraudulent online stores. If you ordered an item from an online store with the Shoptimized logo and haven’t received it, please note that Shoptimized™ does not own any online stores trading under that name. Shoptimized is a software business and there are fraudulent stores operating using their trademark illegally.

Is Shoptimized a Scam or is it Legitimate?

Shoptimized doesn’t have a relationship with the fake and fraudulent stores to be able to stop the scammers who are operating them and shut them down. The perpetrators have devised a system of quickly opening stores and closing them again once they have taken people’s money. As soon as they close one store, they open another clone of it on a new domain.

It seems that the perpetrators are based either in South America or the Far East which makes it almost impossible to prosecute them.

A Fraudulent Store Using Shoptimized Trademark Illegally

Shoptimized Trademark Illegally used by Scammers

Shoptimized is notifying Shopify’s Risk Department (the e-commerce platform these stores are built on) each time they discover a new store. Shopify shuts the fraudulent stores down but unfortunately, a new store is opened immediately to rip-off more unsuspecting people.

Sadly, it seems you will never receive your order so your only recourse is to contact your credit/debit card provider or PayPal to file a chargeback/dispute to have your money refunded.

    How about, is this one a scam?

      Yes, it is a scam.

  • May 9, 2020 at 9:21 AM by an anonymous user from: Minnesota, United States - This is the one on FB now. Is it a Scam?

    I just did this order in Spotimized and the shipping address is the wrong location. I couldn't get anyone to talk to or cancel. Worst experience and I wish I didn't buy from this site. I can only hope I didn't get scammed. I feel like a fool.

    Hello, What does d REAL Logo look like for SHOPTIZIED

    • April 23, 2020 at 10:50 AM by info

      It is the same logo you see at the fake stores. The fake stores are using Shoptimized's logo illegally.

    I think I just ordered from one called Shoptimized. I have an order number and it’s been a week with no tracking number sent. I just sent an email...and as someone’s a gmail account. Ugghh. Looks like I’ll have to call my bank.

      Yeah I never received either. I bought a switch and never got it.

    I have ordered four items from Shoptimized and have not received any of them. Of coarse I ordered expecting a tracking number but didn't receive one. I did send a request for one but haven't received one. I am now wondering how to go about getting my money returned. How is it these crooks are allowed to get away with these fraudulent scams. I feel facebook should be accountable for letting them on the sight without first qualifying them as a legitimate company.

    I had the exact same thing happen to me, I assume this is a scam as well?

    • April 13, 2020 at 11:19 AM by info

      Yes, it is a scam.

    I had been searching for this console on legitimate websites (i.e. Best Buy, Amazon, etc.) When I got this ad on Facebook selling the console I am looking for. I'm guessing it is a scam but want to ask in order to verify that it is one.

    • April 12, 2020 at 3:20 AM by info

      The website is a scam.

  • March 26, 2020 at 8:05 AM by an anonymous user from: Fair Lawn, New Jersey, United States

    Why doesn’t Facebook shut these ads down?

    • March 29, 2020 at 4:13 PM by an anonymous user from: Fair Lawn, New Jersey, United States

      It seems almost impossible to get ahold of Facebook to tell them.

    • March 26, 2020 at 11:54 AM by an anonymous user from: Parlin, New Jersey, United States

      maybe someone needs to sue facebook so they can protect its customers

  • March 21, 2020 at 8:40 PM by an anonymous user from: Chicago, Illinois, United States

    Came across this similar fishy website after seeing ad on Facebook:

  • March 21, 2020 at 10:38 AM by an anonymous user from: Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States is on the Facebook ads today, 3/21/2020. They almost got me 😒 when it’s too good to be true, it’s probably bullsh**t.

    • March 26, 2020 at 11:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Parlin, New Jersey, United States

      I got scammed and the bank told me if you order anything from facebook make sure they accept Paypal so you are covered

      • March 29, 2020 at 4:15 PM by an anonymous user from: Fair Lawn, New Jersey, United States

        You would think PayPal by now would be wise to this and stop letting people buy stuff from them.

  • March 6, 2020 at 6:31 PM by an anonymous user from: Studio City, California, United States - I came across this website whilst online shopping for furniture. I found no contact information, phone numbers, and a very shady looking email address from a Gmail account. Ugh, I hate fake, well, anything...and people setting up fake site/accounts/ just to steal people's hard-earned money the worst. Thanks for the information.
