Is Cathego a Scam or Untrustworthy Online Shoe Store?
an anonymous user from: Woodward, Oklahoma, United States

This store is very shady. I ordered a pair of shoes and they did not come close to f*****g. they were so cheaply made that the strap was already coming apart when I took them out of the box. They are extremely misshaped and I wouldn't know who could have ever worn them. I have had a nightmare of trying to return them and trying to get my money back - but sorry - nothing is working now for months. So my money is down the tubes. I'm wondering how we can unite our efforts to close them down first of all to stop from others falling into this trap - and then if possible - try to recoup some funds. This is such a shame and a terrible scam.

DO NOT BUY - you will not receive the shoe in the picture. I ordered a pair of sandals in April 2020. The description says upper leather but what I received was made of canvas material and a completely different sole. It was not what I thought I had ordered. Very disappointed.

Same. I ordered back in April. It is not July 9th, and the sandals finally arrived. And they are absolutely NOT the same shoe advertised. The description says leather upper. They are made of the cheapest canvas material. Clearly poor construction, trash quality shoe. And obviously not the shoe in the picture. DO NOT BUY

Do not buy from Cathego. They will take the money from your credit card immediately. After waiting a month for them to ship, I email them to cancel the order. We emailed back and forth with them asking me why I wanted to cancel, and then asking me the same question again 3 emails later. After another week goes by they go ahead and ship PART of the order. I emailed them they were going to have to pay to return the order. I haven't heard from them. Package comes in and they have placed a label over the original label from an address in Alabama. I looked it up and it's the address for a gas station. This is a scam. They will not answer my emails, and half my shipment never came in.There is no way to look up your order online. When I put in my email it tells me it doesn't exist. The address and phone numbers to contact them are fake. When they answered my emails they could not use proper English. I am going to my Credit Card company and file a complaint and try to get my money refunded. They should be arrested and shut down.

Same here...Placed an order in mid April and received bogus tracking info. It said the shoes arrived in Fremont, CA on May 1st and it's now June 9th and nothing! It's only a 7 hour truck ride to Huntington Beach. Doubt I'll ever see the shoes or my money. I'll never buy anything advertised on Instagram or FB again. Glad it was only one pair. Sorry for those of you who invested more money :(

I ordered a pair of sandals from Cathegos who then notified me by email saying they had been shipped on May 28th but I haven’t received them nor can I reach anyone at this company to help me. So I looked them up and found this info saying the company is a scam and advising me to contact my bank and start a dispute to get my money back.

I looked up the number attached to the on-line purchase I made to a company called yongelyuan clothing, which evidently share the same phone number with a shady footwear online company (0755-84829715).

I started to have concerns after I got an email that told me my order had been shipped on the 2nd of June, but there was no tracking information. That seemed odd to me. How can it have been "shipped" anywhere without some record of its movement?! I then did what I should have done BEFORE I placed my order, I Googled them; 2 bad reviews, and nothing else, then I searched the phone number; it's connected to ANOTHER on-line sketchy company (footwear).

I don't have a lot to spend on clothing, in fact this would have been my first such purchase in YEARS! But because we're in the middle of a GLOBAL PANDEMIC it seemed like the way to go. :(

I am struggling, like MANY ARE, just now. It is beyond distressing to be reminded YET AGAIN that humans are sometimes just plain gross and greedy creatures!

I shudder to think of the flaming hoops I'll have to go through, now, just to get any satisfaction! Good times.

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
