Has anyone ever bought from this site and is it legit?

I've been looking for a sold out Levi top that I saw on Asos and came across the above site. But as my credit card got hacked a few months ago, I am being a lot more careful now. This site doesn't have the https that websites usually have so I am wondering if anybody here is familiar with it and is it ok?

Thank you.

Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Dodgy as fuck.

Not familiar with it but there are a few clues that would mark it as very dodgy to me:

- Not all countries have the same rules as UK (presuming you're here) and the grammar implies that this is not based in this country such as "Welcome to collect this site and tell your friends "

- How would you contact them with a problem? The 'contact us' form does not have a phone number, an address or an email address.

- It says it is sponsored by 'Levi's Store', but the link takes you to another brokenholmes site and there is no link to anything official from Levis.

I could list many more things that look dodgy but I'd definitely advise to stay away!

Thank you both. I feel so stupid now for not even checking the contact details sad

I'll go back searching again to see if I can find what I'm looking for elsewhere.

No need to feel stupid! It was only when I nearly ordered something myself from a dodgy rip-off site that I read some reviews and realised what I should have looked for! smile

Good luck in your hunt.

Which of the tops was it?

I was looking for these trousers in a medium.
(Sorry I wrote top instead of trousers).

I can find these www.levi.com/GB/en_GB/neutral/p/269890000 but they aren't the same relaxed fit that I wanted.

Sometimes worth setting up an eBay search if you know exactly what you want, then it will email you if someone puts them up for sale.

I didn't realise you could do that. Thank you.

Looks a bit dodgy to me OP. It's registered to a residential address and was only registered last month.
