    Default Images ripped off from Etsy

    My friend sent me this link, Its my product and even my descriptions and they also used the reviews,I recognised the people in the reviews and its taken from Etsy, looks they got the price wrong though. I think its a scam site I have sent an email but not holding out much hope. I'm not sure there is much I can do it's so frustrating

    link to the dodgy site

    Sorry to see that….. there’s a bad bad world out there, all that time effort and dedication you put into your massive collection of stunningly unique creations…. Then somebody can copy all that data at a click of a button….. good job it’s not a from your stockroom or safe… hopefully people will realise it’s a scam site when they see the price of that sterling silver ring…. Not worth that even if it was 24 carat gold….. hope it doesn’t impact on you and your customers too much….. although people do get scammed so easily… part of the problem living in the modern digital world…. Good luck with it all… and I hope you get it in sorted in some way … Nick

    Norton have put a big red warning on it saying DANGEROUS SITE, so hopefully not any people will venture on it. What a curse though. Dennis.

    Hi Joseph,
    I'm really sorry to hear someone is copying your beautiful pieces, but sadly copying other people's work is a huge industry. I've noticed that Missoma, who also produce cast pieces have added a link on their website to the fake websites, with a warning to their customers that they should avoid the fakes and buy direct from the makers! I think this is a good idea, as it shows the scammers up for what they are, but informs the customers that they should only buy from them. I'd definitely contact Etsy to have the scammers removed, but have no idea how easy this is to do, or whether they comply or not.
