Beware of EDealMe – It’s A Scam
This is a warning about the website Edealme.com for online shoppers – DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM!
The website Edealme.com appears to sell wonderful appealing products. You might see advertisements for them on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. They use friendly looking photos and a nice warm font. DO NOT FALL FOR IT!
It’s all a scam! The EDealMe website makes it appear they are a reputable U.S.-based company with a catalog of glossy products. In reality they’re a scam website who only have overpriced, poorly made products that look nothing like they are advertised. They use video ads and photos from other sites to lure potential buyers in with low prices. You might think you’re going to get a great deal, but you’ll get something else – ripped off!
The odds of buyers actually receiving the products they advertise, if receiving anything at all, are slim to none. You’ll be out of the money you spent and be left with an overpriced knockoff product.
You will be given falsified tracking information for a package that has never shipped or a tracking number for an old package that had shipped previously, so it appears that something is headed your way when you look for it.
This sneaky move is meant delay the realization that you’ve been scammed. By the time you start to wonder ‘where’s my package and why isn’t it moving according to this tracking information?’ time will have passed making the likelihood of getting any reimbursement less likely. The odds are good that you are not getting a package and EDealMe will not be giving you a refund or even answer you when you try to contact them.
It’s also worth noting if you use Paypal to send them a payment and suddenly realize you’ve been taken and want to file a dispute against them to get your money back, ‘EDealMe’ gives a pre-written message on Paypal that you will read that states – ‘Raising Disputes will freeze funds for 180 days’ and after reminding you of this asking are you sure you want to continue to file this dispute? THIS IS ALL COMPLETELY UNTRUE! YOUR PAYPAL FUNDS WILL NOT BE FROZEN IF YOU FILE A DISPUTE. This is simply another scheming way these scammers buy time from you and attempt to frighten you not to sound the alarm bell about them.
I’ve read from one victim who supposedly miraculously got a package from EDealMe, was looking for a refund for their goods when they saw it wasn’t the quality that they believed it was. He said he was told to return the product back to China, which with the cost of that shipping wasn’t worth it to recoup his money. And remember there’s no guarantee EDealMe would reimburse you if you follow their instructions anyway.
Somehow Edealme has a presence on Facebook. How they’re allowed to advertise on there and have working, functioning pages is something I don’t understand or why it’s allowed. It immediately becomes clear there is something strange going on when you search for ‘Edealme’ on Facebook and see their “page” and their latest posts are from over a year ago.
Somehow they have comments and likes on some of their posts, which I’m betting are manipulated or stolen from other pages. They also have a page under the name ‘Edealme1’. That’s odd huh?
Just do a quick internet search for reviews from shoppers sharing their experiences from EDealMe. You don’t find much information about them at all! Strange huh? RED FLAG RIGHT THERE!
EDealMe was brought to my attention by someone who ordered some facial masks from them. Needing them quickly with the current pandemic situation, they saw one of their ads on Facebook, felt it was a good deal by what they saw and quickly ordered them.
Unfortunately, they never double-checked this EDealMe company. They never noticed their suspicious social media presence. Nor did they ever do a quick search for reviews or feedback by others who dealt with EDealMe. Oddly, you’ll see plenty of ‘happy customer’ comments under their Facebook posts. It’s likely those are manufactured and faked.
You can’t find any worthwhile information regarding them out on the internet. This might be due to this site recently popping up and is the current mask i.e. website name this scam is using at the moment.
I suspect it’s one of those hit and run sites that will disappear just as quickly as it arose. It will probably eventually disappear, but will pop up again with another domain name with the same scam to run on online consumers. By the time shoppers share their negative experiences and ring the bell warning others to stay away from EDealMe.com it will be too late. If anyone has information or insight into how this all probably works please comment below.
After a quick internet search I discovered that one ‘customer support’ email address they use – email@example.com – also happens to be the same customer support email for some other ‘online shops’. Some with truly bizarre names.
ILikeDeal.Shop – SamOJoy.com – GTopStar – Topuest – NoDownRiver – DownSheep – SamORiver – AllPickT – SamOLike
I was told by someone there are countless ‘customer service’ email addresses with different names using their @dreamxin.com domain that cover many, many scam online stores. They might have different names and be found in different online stores, but they will all give consumers the same ripped off results. If I started to list all the ‘online stores’ I found listed using this domain email address it would fill pages.
They’re all scamming online sites under the same roof – and most likely even more out there. The websites all look quite similar to the simplified, slap together design of EDealMe. Most likely these crooks cast as wide a net as possible by creating as many online stores as they can to try to lure in as many victims as possible and get them to order a product by using a stolen ad on a social media platform, get money sent to them from victims, give victims fake tracking information for a package in order to not raise suspicions they’ve been scammed as long as possible.
This was this one persons experience with EDealMe.com that I was told. Now here’s at least one review of an online shopping experience out there regarding this website. It was upsetting and frustrating for them to realize they fell for one of these online shopping scams. They were very anxious to warn others about this, which is how I ended up writing about it here.
So, this is something of public service message to warn others not to fall for this scamming website or any of these others that are part of this ring. Hopefully this post regarding EDealMe will be found by other potential victims and if it saves one person from being ripped off by this site it will have been worth it.
So, if you do intend to order anything from EDealMe.com or any of the other sites I mention be prepared to learn:
THEY ARE NOT WHO THEY APPEAR TO BE
THE ADS THEY USE ARE TAKEN FROM OTHER SITES AND THEY USE THEM TO FALSELY ADVERTISE PRODUCTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA THEY CLAIM TO SELL
THEY DO NOT HAVE WHAT THEY ADVERTISE. THEY ONLY HAVE OVERPRICED KNOCKOFFS IF ANYTHING
YOU CAN MOST LIKELY EXPECT TO WAIT MONTHS TO RECEIVE YOUR ORDER FROM THEM – OR JUST AS LIKELY YOU WILL NOT GET ANYTHING IN RETURN FROM THE MONEY YOU SPEND
YOU WILL BE GIVEN FAKE TRACKING INFORMATION OF ‘YOUR SHIPMENT’ THAT APPEARS TO NEVER GET ANY CLOSER TO YOU
GOOD LUCK GETTING A REFUND FROM THEM
You’ve been warned! Hopefully this makes you aware of this now, before you shop there and send them money. My advice is – DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM! Just take your shopping elsewhere. And make sure it is a trustworthy site!!!
If you’ve had your own experience with EDealMe – whether good or bad (though I suspect most would be bad) – or any of these other related sites, please feel free to comment and share your story about them. It’s apparent they won’t be willing to share any of their true customer stories. ALSO if you discover they’ve assumed a new identity and have a new website name they’re going by and using it to scam others, please let folks know.
