    Default Any experience with online discounter Azonlon?

    I got all excited because this discounter had a couple of my favorites at more than 30% less than anywhere else, and I was feeling confident about them because they listed a physical address and phone in San Francisco, but then I saw this:

    https://azonlon.com/about/

    Scroll down past the "sexy CEO" photo and look at the text under the headings "All Natural", "Top Quality" and "10% Cashback".

    Would any legit company allow that to happen on their website?

    Here’s a Google street view pic of the business address:

    Oh, yeah, that looks legit.

    HaHa! I just did the exact same mapping and came back here to post it. Oh, well....

    Maybe they're a dropshipper? (Can you tell how much I'd like that cheap Goutal?)

    There have been plenty of new websites popping up since last year, that always show up at the top in google or bing searches. I have been reporting them to FBI. I have reported at least 5 so far. If paypal is not an option, and they want your CC information, then run from it no matter how authentic it is looking.

    You spelled Amazon wrong :P

    My favorite part of the About page is:

    “ALL NATURAL

    For county now sister engage had season better had waited.
    Occasional mrs interested far expression.”

    Yes, exactly yes. Couldn’t have said it better myself. WHAT!?

    Who knows, maybe Robert Frost’s mind is being blown in some damp grave.

    And next week, it would be a completely new website that would be popping up as a top result in searches. So long as google keeps on taking money from anybody and everybody to pop them up, they've got a good business model working for them where they might be able to get a handful of credit cards. FBI is not sitting there monitoring every single website, and is only taking action after citizens report it- that too a couple of weeks later. Report this one now, and it will be gone in 2 weeks.

    You know, I think I've been an Occasional mrs a few times in my past.

    I know you're right, Mudassir, but jeez, if we did that for every dodgy website we come across, it would turn into a part-time job.

    On a incorrectly-pictured Bottega Veneta, they have the same photo/description/SKU combo/method as fragrance11.com so I suppose they're using the same supplier and website source.

    But man, the CEO. My goodness. She must have gone to school with the makeup artist and perfume expert pictured here https://azonlon.com/our-team/

    That's hilarious.

    Now I feel like a dipshit for even posting about these obviously fraudulent doofuses. Oh, well... too easily seduced by a perfume bargain. Not for the first time, and probably not for the last.

    What I love about the “team” is they both have the same name, one with email to the first name, the other to the last, and two utterly different phone numbers.

    You know it might be fine. I think pretty much anyone--you, me, whoever---can tap into a wholesale inventory in New Jersey or somewhere and put their inventory on a website we make up, and everything is drop-shipped from that warehouse. What warehouse? Not sure. And then the profit margin is based on our pricing. I think you'd have more issues from misrepresented descriptions than fraud fragrances. The only thing is generally there is SOMEONE out there with better controls who is also selling the item at a discount. I poked around there a bit, and other than the CEO, I didn't see anything that made me say "oh wow."

    BTW I think someone mentioned a niche discount house named FragranceLord here and I did place an order that went perfectly and I was very happy.
