    Earlier this year, Bed Bath & Beyond filed for bankruptcy and announced that it would close down all of its 360 stores. Since the announcement, the company has been running a store-closing sale, with discounts ranging from 50 to 70%. These sales are only available in store, not online. In fact, the current Bed Bath & Beyond website doesn’t have any product listings at all. The website simply states that it “will return soon!” and promotes its ongoing sale.

    Unfortunately, however, scammers have recently been misusing Bed Bath & Beyond’s name and branding to try to trick people into making purchases on scammer-controlled, fake versions of Bed Bath & Beyond’s legitimate website. Fake website scams such as this are not uncommon, and this recent Bed Bath & Beyond situation is a good example of how they work. Read on to learn how to better identify these types of scams and avoid being a victim.

    caprchain com scam

    Although the websites feature the Bed Bath & Beyond logo, none of them are in any way affiliated with the company— the scammers are just hoping people will be tricked into thinking they’re legitimate websites, be interested in the enticing discounts, and feel comfortable entering their personal and financial info onto them.  

    Naturally, due to the websites being operated by scammers, it is overwhelmingly likely that any purchases made on them will not be honored. The scammers are simply using the websites as a way of stealing people’s money and collecting their personal and financial info, which they probably intend to sell to cybercriminals/hackers on the dark web and/or use to commit further crimes themselves.

    We’ve noticed that the scammers have been getting the word out about their fake websites via Facebook. They’ve been making bogus accounts impersonating Bed Bath & Beyond and using them to advertise their scam websites. Below are two examples.
