How Does Cricutoutlet.com Work?
It is a common thing among illegitimate shopping sites to flaunt cheap prices for their products; prices that are too good to be true. They are also known to give unbelievable discounts and never-ending flash sales.
In the case of cricutoutlet, no reason is given for these high level discounts. Most of the products on the site are slashed to less than 65% of their original amount. As good as this can be for customers, it gets suspicious when these sales last too long.
Some of the payment methods available for this store include; PayPal, VISA, Mastercard, etc.
Cricutoutlet.com: Red Flags Found?
Here are some things we found (or didn’t find) on cricutoutlet.com
One of the most important things to look out for when you would shop with any online store is the customer reviews section. Any online store, no matter how big, established or reliable, usually has good and bad reviews. This is for the sole reason that no service is perfect. Therefore it is usually suspicious when a store has only good or only bad reviews.
Cricutoutlet on the other hand, has neither. During our investigation, we did not find any product reviews whatsoever on the website. Legit stores use product reviews to further sell their products, correct their errors and confirm themselves; scam stores need none of these, so they don’t have reviews.
Absence of product reviews means no customer has been able to confirm receiving their orders satisfactorily. This is a huge red flag.
Cricutoutlet.com has a 14-day return policy. This means that you have 14 days after you receive your item, to determine whether or not you’re satisfied and return it. It is important to note that a condition for returning is that the item must be in the same condition it was when you got it, with its tags and original packaging. Good, right? Wrong!
The big flaw here is that there is no address given for you to return your unsatisfactory orders. In the absence of an address, you’re left stranded and with the “faulty” product, and you can’t request a chargeback since you confirmed receiving your order. This is another huge red flag.
CricutOutlet does not provide any details whatsoever to show who they are, how they can be contacted or where they can be found. All details that could have revealed these are conveniently omitted from the site. Well, except for the email which they provided (email@example.com).
The problem with this email is that it’s known to have been used by various other scam stores. Customers who have tried contacting them via the mail have complained of never getting any reply. It is all just fake.
Cricutoutlet.com is an anonymous online store that sells products at prices the real manufacturers would never sell. Besides that, they do not give customers the platform to commend or complain about their services. All these are basic requirements of an online store.
Finally, this store does not have a secure domain and all personal information you enter is bound to be stolen. Cricutoutlet has all the makings of a scam and you would be safer staying away from them.
