Scam Website Discovered
Posted on 22 December 2017
At the request of one of our clients, we investigated a new website!
Our client Ana, sent us an email asking if we think that salesalomon.com is a scam website or not. Once received her request, we had our engineers from the Security Team take a closer look at this website.
On their report, we found that indeed, something is wrong. The first thing that stands out is that the website is not secured. Before the ''salesalomon.com'' there must be a green lock (see example below). In this case, you should not introduce any sensitive details such as credit card information or passwords as it can be very easily stolen and used by cyber attackers.
Second of all, the website doesn't look quite right, having many images that are stolen from other brands and the social media section where is situated ''Follow Us'' doesn't direct you to their accounts, meaning that they don't exist.
Third of all, there is no way to contact them, no email anywhere on their website, no chat, no 'Contact Us' section.
Before finishing up the report on this particular website, we took a look at the Payment Icons. We saw that were advertised several usual methods of payment such as VISA, MasterCard, Paypal etc on their front page. When we took a closer look at their ''Payment Policy'', we discovered that was mentioned only Credit Cards can be used and not Paypal.
Having said that, we would strongly advise not to use this website for any future purchases and advise your family and friends too. If you did, you should immediately contact your bank to cancel any transaction.
