Barbour-jacket-sale.com scam site
I received, no less than 120 spam comments from barbour-jacket-sale.com on my blog this morning. All of the barbour jacket sale website spam comments were the same and made no sense at all, just filled with links to barbour-jacket-sale.com. It read:
For months, people around the world have watched the barbour jackets and violent protests in Athens. But Greeks in rural areas say the country’s debt crisis is hitting barbour jacket even harder. And they say the government is ignoring their problems.
In the West Macedonian town of Ptolemaida, electricity is the main industry. Mines in the quilted barbour jacket area supply lignite or “brown coal” for power. The electric company in the town is owned by the state. But the government plans to sell off many of its state-owned mens barbour jacket to help pay Greece’s debts.
In the nearby town of quilted jacket, Lefteris Ionnadis helps lead an activist group called the Independent Kozani Movement.
LEFTERIS IOANNIDIS: “Our economy has depended on the coal industry for years. Most people living here were employed in the barbour quilted jacket, and other barbour sale industries were neglected. Private businesses have been struggling for decades, and rural economies have taken a big hit.”
No Contact Address and Not Secure
The fact that the barbour-jacket-sale.com site sent so much poorly worded spam on one day, suggested to me that there was something dodgy about the website. On investigation, I find that there are no contact details on the site, no VAT number or company registration number, no Terms and Conditions of Sale, the sign-in process to place an order in not on a secure server and the site is riddled with broken links and is not complete, with the News section featuring links to articles that don’t exist. Although purporting to be a UK based site, or at least featuring £s as the currency, the domain name is registered to xu qiaoqian, who is, (or are) based in Hong Kong
Now I can’t say for sure, but these are all warning signals that barbour-jacket-sale.com is a scam site, simply out to take the money and run.
This may not be the case. Barbour-jacket-sale.com may simply be a poorly designed website, put up by someone inexperienced in either eCommerce and marketing, but personally, I won’t be placing an order on that site anytime soon
There are numerous similar asites, such as barbourjacket-sales.com and barbourjacketsales.com, all with no contact details, broken links, poor English, etc. and all offering massive discounts on Barbour jackets. The above two sites are registered in the Bahamas, without full whois details, and a c/o address, yet state that they are UK based sites
If you have ordered something from barbour-jacket-sale.com, barbourjacket-sales.com or barbourjacketsales.com or received spam from them, we’d be interested to know the outcome. Thanks.
Update: In the time it took to write this article, barbour-jacket-sale.com sent me another 20 spam comments. Spamtwats!
