    Bazaare Online scam Christmas Sales

    If you’ve encountered Christmas sale ads on Facebook boasting unbelievably low prices or jaw-dropping discounts and are questioning their authenticity, you’ve landed in the right spot. The short answer is that if they’re either of the ads featured in this post, you should steer clear, but keep reading for the full breakdown.

    Fake Christmas Sales (Bazaare Online)

    If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that scam shopping sites and suspicious Facebook ads are nothing new. However, we’ve noticed a recent uptick in the number of ads promoting the sketchy shopping site, bazaare[.]online. Below are screenshots of two of the ads:

    Bazaare Online scam ad (2/2)

    Women’s clothing priced at 98 cents and Apple products discounted by up to 90% — seems too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, it is. Both of these Facebook ads are malicious, intended to lure people into clicking and visiting the dubious shopping site bazaare[.]online.

    bazaare[.]online’s crazy (and bogus) discounts

    Bazaare Online claims it’s able to sell its products at such unbelievable discounts because throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon’s inventories piled up, many of its warehouses closed down, and now Amazon sells products to Bazaare Online at exceptionally low prices, and then those savings are passed onto the customer. Of course, it’s simply not true.

    Beyond the implausible discounts, another glaring sign that bazaare[.]online is untrustworthy is the highly suspicious email address provided on its contact us page: support@koronacide[.]com. What is koronacide[.]com, and why is there no reference to Bazaare Online in its email address? In simple terms, this is a significant red flag indicating that the site should not be trusted.

    Note: koronacide[.]com is also a sketchy shopping site, so please steer clear of it too.
