Stanley1915[.]com and Stanley1913us[.]com
Imitating a legitimate company

Stanley 1915 and Stanley 1913 US Review
On ScamAdviser, Stanley1913US[.]com has an abysmal trust score of just 1% — definitive proof that the site is not to be trusted. However, if that wasn’t enough, a quick check to see when the site was registered reveals that it’s only been around since earlier this month — surely not enough time to have earned the trust of “500,000 Happy Customers”, as the site claims.
The age of Stanley1915[.]com is even younger – created on May 13, 2023:
Bogus social media promotion
Chances are, if you’re reading this post wondering if Stanley1913US/Stanley1915 can be trusted, you saw posts on social media advertising/linking to the site — most likely offering big discounts. Both the posts and the discounts are bogus, even though many of them have garnered lots of reactions, comments, and shares (these interactions are from bot accounts).
If you’ve ever fallen for Stanley1915/Stanley1913US scam, please contact your bank to cancel the transaction ASAP.
What the scammers want
As mentioned, Stanley1913US is a confirmed scam, and any money spent on the site will go straight into the scammers’ pockets.
