SUSPECTED SCAM!

PseudonymRoot Outlet Shop
Url / Websitehttps://www.rootoutlet.shop/
Scam contentsI made a purchase of $122 but noticed my credit card was charged $134.84 and the vendor name said EPL *WANLUFO LTD

It also looks like they charged my credit card twice. I have reported it as fraudulent to my credit card company and have tried canceling the order. Lesson learned. :(
Your comments / analysisComplete scam! I contacted the real Roots and they advised this was a fraudulent site.

    Yes, it's a scam. It's not from the company Roots at all. Notice that their web site address is rootoutlet, not rootsoutlet, with an S. My card wouldn't go through, luckily. But they got the card number. So had to cancel the card.

    I also made this mistake a few moments ago but the bank is telling me I can only dispute after 7 to 10 business days. I feel so crappy about clicking a sponsored facebook Ad.

    Happened to me today as well, clicked a FB link. My total was 108.00 but they charged 119.00. MasterCard wouldn't cancel the transaction, have to wait 30 days, if you don't receive send product they will help you. I'm pissed ????

    I just made some purchase on this website for $130. Payment was declined but it was charged to my credit card. Payment is made to DUMAOUTLET . I emailed my Bank but I am really pissed off with myself.

    Facebook ad, 90% off L.L. Bean. Never got an email confirmation. It takes you to the L.L.Bean website, or something that spoofs it, and asks you for credit card information twice. Do I ever feel like an idiot.

    thanks everyone for sharing your experience I was about to place an order but thought I would investigate further being that the shop address was missing the s in Roots. You guys just saved me a lot of hassle, thanks again!

    Yes this is a scam! Do not just call your credit card company, because they also got your name and address and email etc. Check with credit monitoring such as equifax and If possible set up alerts on your credit

    Just fell victim to this as well. I have to wait 30 days, then Mastercard will go after them. You bet Im calling them back in 30 days, got it circled on my calendar. I also had Mastercard send me a new card so they cant charge anything on my scammed card. They also charged me over 175 on a 160 dollar order, the name being EPL*HUAYANDZ CO

    I saw an add for that website on facebook and ordered from it this morning. When processing the paiement, I obtained an error message stating that my payment was declined, therefore I made the payment a second time. The payment was refused again. When looking at the transaction history on the website directly, I saw that one transaction was refused and the other one was "pending approval". On my credit card activities statement, I see that the first payment was processed, but not the second one. I called my bank and they will open an investigation. Meanwhile, I tried to returned on the website and it's no longer available. I did not received any email confirmation for this order.

    Did anyone get a confirmation email and tracking number? I also saw the fb add and did a purchase for over $200 but I was charge $168. I got an email with the "confirmation order" but after seeing all these comments I reported it to my bank, cancelled my credit card and I was lucky enough to get a refund in less than 15days but I got another email with a tracking number and it says the package is coming from China... I wonder if this is just a scam to make you believe that your package will be delivered.

    Oh I just found out the tracking website is a scam too! "17TRACK is a SCAM tracking site. 17TRACK is used by SCAM fraudulent companies in China to give false shipping information on products" https://ca.trustpilot.com/review/www.17track.net
