Every horror story begins with a villain… this Knockoff Nightmare comes from rosegal.com. A bathing suit should be a simple enough purchase, right? Think again. Even one of our staffer’s daughters fell for this last year and ended up having to throw it away – she ordered a medium and what arrived was more like a 5T…as in toddler. This rosegal nightmare is even worse. We can’t stress enough just how much shopping local benefits everyone involved. Even Wal-mart is a better choice than online knockoff sites, folks! For a complete list of questionable sites check out our Known Knockoff Sites page.
From the buyer – “DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! I bought two bathing suits, spent $50. Both arrived damaged and with rips even stains on them. No tags, just thrown in a little bag with a sku number on them. They were so cheap that the threads were coming apart in the seams and hems. Ordered XL…it is a medium at best!”
More from the buyer – “Package came from China!! Declared customs value $18.00?!? Tried to deal with returns and got someone who barely speaks English. It took 5 days to even get a response that made sense…and what do they say? “May I advise you give to friend as gift or sell it? Then you reorder new suits and I give discount code to you”. I kid you not…exact quoted sentences. To return…They want me to pay to ship them back to China and then pay to have them shipped back to me again. Or pay shipping back to China and then take a partial refund for the return. Or better yet just give away the *** defects and then pay them for more shoddy merchandise.”
We think the buyer sums it up best with this last statement – “Ridiculous!!!COMPLETE SCAM!!!!”
