New update with fake websites promoting On shoes in South Africa
We understand how important it is for you to make informed decisions when purchasing On shoes and On apparel online.
For this reason, we have compiled a list of the latest scam websites operating within the South African environment. Our main aim is to protect you from falling victim to their fraudulent activities.
As at 7 September 2023, these are the 14 fake websites fraudulently “representing” On in South Africa.
It is crucial to exercise caution and avoid these websites at all costs. As you will notice from the above list of names, many of the fraudulent sites have URL's that look like legitimate websites. Please do not enter any of your personal information or look to purchase goods from these URL's.
Another way of identifying unsafe or non-verified websites is the "padlock icon" in the address bar. Unverified websites do not show such image before the name of the site URL name.
We have received numerous reports from customers who have unfortunately been deceived by these illegitimate websites and operators. Consumers have experienced delays in and/or no communication whatsoever after placing orders and making payment, followed by non-delivery of products. Some customers have even received counterfeit items. We want to ensure that you do not face the same issues and end up wasting your hard-earned money.
It is important to note that these scam websites do not have any genuine On products available nor do they operate a physical store in our region. They are merely using the On brand name to deceive unsuspecting customers.
We urge you to be vigilant and only purchase from authorised resellers or trusted websites. You will find an updated list of these authorised resellers on our Tifosi Sports website.
