As it gets closer to prom, the females of
This year the trend seems to be ordering online.
Online, the selection of dresses is greater; however, how do you really know that the website is legit? I was trying to order my dress online and came across a website that had it for thirty dollars cheaper-- www.weddingdressesbrand.com .
Ordering the dress was a little confusing, so I decided to call the number for some help. Thank god I did because when the woman picked up the phone I knew instantly the website was not legitimate.
First off, I could barely understand or even hear the woman on the phone. Second, it sounded like I had called a house-phone and the woman clearly had no idea what I was talking about. Once I said I needed help with ordering this dress (the third time) she finally said “Oh, oh, yeah what dress is it?” I hung up immediately.
As I continued my search I found two more websites that all had different names and website layouts but the same telephone number as the first website I came across.
Ladies, please be careful about ordering your dresses online. Make sure you know the website is a real one so you’re not giving $250 or more to some internet scammer.
Ways to tell if a website is legit or not: Call the number on the website and ask the person on the phone questions concerning your dress, shipping, etc. Make sure the person knows what they’re talking about. Look at customer reviews and see what people who have used the website have to say about it. If there is an actual store in the area (Macy’s, Nordstrom, Jessica McClintock etc), it’s probably a real website. Scams like this happen everyday, don’t let it happen to you.
