Scam - fake Roots site rootssale.club

I clicked a Facebook ad and was directed to a site which looked very much like the legit Roots site. But the prices were so low that it made me suspicious. I then checked the URL and sure enough it's a fake site.

Definitely a fake site! Thanks for the good eye!
Most likely set up to take your money and never bother to send you anything...OR send you something fake!

The real deal if you want a discount can be found here, and only here: https://www.roots.com/ca/en/sale/ (The REAL Roots site!)

my mom clicked on the link through facebook ad and spent 100 bucks, she did end up getting a package with a fake pair of raybans even though what she ordered was 2 purses, obviously this is a scam, i wish she had of told me before she ordered, but old people get scammed sometimes, trying to figure out what i can do, obviously there will be no way to get a refund from the faceless chinese corp that send the package out, but im wondering what if any my options are for going after facebook, im sure the chances of getting a dime back are slim to none, still bullshit that fake ads on a platform like facebook with so many old people using it scammed my mom out of 100bucks.

To BrandonP43278: This happened to me and I disputed the charges on my credit card with my credit card company. They will investigate the charges and work to get my $100 refunded. I ordered 3 Roots purses and received a fake pair of Ray Ban sunglasses. I have signed my form to say goods not received (the purses) and then sent a further note stating that I received fake sunglasses from this Chinese company in Shanghai.

It's very frustrating but you need to dispute the charge with your bank.

Hi there,

Just report it via whois or abuse to the registrar and they usually shut it down. Also reach out to Roots legal and abuse team...
