    Onisa is supposedly an online shop that purports to sell a large variety of tech items such as iPhone camera lenses and cases, selfie sticks, USB sticks, chargers, and more. The store is also advertising the usual crazy discounts you come across on platforms like this. Unfortunately, the offers are empty and the website is a scam. If you make a purchase from Onisa, you won’t receive your items — and certainly won’t be getting your money back.

    In addition, the folks over at ScamAdviser have awarded it a very low trust score of 13/100. Aside from too-good-to-be-true discounts, other red flags include:

    • The email address provided, “onisastore24h[at]gmail.com”, doesn’t work.
    • Onisa[.]store does not provide a business address. There is also no telephone number.
    • The website’s design template has been lifted from other websites.
    • The website is less than 6 months old (03/18/22).
    • There is a lack of reviews — and social media presence.

    In summary then, stay far away from the Onisa[.]store!
