Buyers Beware: Do not buy from Anne-Shoes.com!!! Read below to find out what you might get in the mail from them instead of shoes if you do!
As you may have read in my School Uniform Polo Shirts for $4 post, my daughter is starting kindergarten on August 1. I’m trying to get ahead of the game because I know this summer is going to fly by. So I bought some uniforms the other day and then proceeded to buy some shoes last night.
Keds Kids Taylor Lace
My daughter and I agreed on the Keds Taylor Lace Sneakers we found on 6pm.com. I always check 6pm first because they have great prices on shoes and free shipping. But the Taylor Lace shoes were only 18% off so I did a quick search to see if I could find them anywhere else for less. I googled ‘Keds Kids Taylor Lace (toddler/youth)’ which I copied and pasted from 6pm.com and found a listing for them at anne-shoes.com. And wow, they were on sale for only $17.10 ($30.99 on 6pm)!
My first thought was “What a great deal! I wonder what shipping costs?” So I did a little searching on their site and found that they had really great deals on just about every brand shoe you could think of. Then I started to think that their prices were a little too good to be true. Anyway, it was late so I decided to go to bed and finish my little shopping venture in the morning.
The first thing I did when I woke up was get back to my shoe shopping. I found 2 more pairs of Keds that I loved on this Anne-Shoes at irresistible prices. So I added them to my cart and proceeded to check out. But before I completed my checkout and made payment via Paypal I listened to my gut. My gut was telling me that something wasn’t right about this site.
I had created an account during checkout and got a ‘Welcome’ email from them. I checked out their contact section to see if their was a phone number for them which there wasn’t, only email. I googled a coupon code for them as they were asking for one at checkout and there was no mention of them on any of the big coupon code sites. That was biggest red flag for me!
Anyway, there was just something really fishy about this site and their super low prices. So upon further research I found this, Scambook: Anne-shoes.com. Apparently there have been 93 complaints filed against them with a total of $14,431.81 in damages. Even worse than that, there are reports that they are sending people shower caps and mosquito bracelets in place of the shoes they ordered. This is part of the scam so that they are able to give Paypal a tracking number.
I’m not sure why they still have an account with Paypal with all of these complaints and people receiving junk instead of shoes. But apparently they do and are still able to take your money. I wanted to get this warning out because I googled other shoes to find this site pop up on several occasions.
So beware and DO NOT buy from Anne-Shoes.com!! You know what they say, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is!!
