Avoid the IToyStudio (IToyStudio.com) scam plaguing the Facebook marketplace!
Created less than a month ago, IToyStudio.com is a fake discount Lego retailer that pretends to be offering up to 97% off select Lego building sets.
Lego sets once retailing for £270.49 and £142.09 can be found marked down to £9.29 and £12.49 – can you say too good to be true?
However, it doesn’t stop there! Oh no, not even close!
The operators behind IToyStudio are also responsible for over 60 SCAM discount retail sites that we’ve know of to date.
To learn more regarding the IToyStudio Scam along with what measures you should employ if you have been scammed we invite you to read our investigative review!
IToyStudio.com is a FAKE Lego retail site.
Contracting ALL of their traffic from Facebook, IToyStudio is a viral Facebook scam looking to deceive and fleece innocent consumers out of their hard-earned money.
Don’t let their ‘online sales’ fool you.
They are just empty promises geared with the intentions of making your more susceptible for falling for their retail trap.
All of the Lego building sets featured ‘on sale’ reflect savings ranging between 80% to 97% off.
Perhaps you are familiar with the following adage: If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is!
Well my friends, IToyStudio, is the epitome of that adage.
Like every SINGLE one of the fake discount scams launched by this masked scam network, IToyStudio operates with blatant anonymity.
There is no About Us page, no verifiable ownership information or any intel regarding how the IToyStudio operation was incepted.
When you navigate to the Contact Us page of IToyStudio.com you are disclosed the following contact methods:
Russell Pl, Brighton BN1 2TF, UK
Phone: +44 1273 772688
Fax: +44 1273 772688
When you search the said address of IToyStudio it appears to be the an address for a Lego store based out of Brighton, England.
After cross-referencing the telephone and fax number (identical numbers) along with their hours of operation with the Brighton, England Lego store it became quickly apparent that the they did not match.
It should be noted too that Lego has no affiliation what-so-ever with IToyStudio.com.
As you will see for yourself below, the operators behind these fake discount scams have made it a speciality of theirs to create fake retail sites that target name brands, Lego is the 16th name brand that we’ve seen targeted to date.
The operators behind these fraudulent discount sites are varying their retail scams by diversifying and merging into other retail niches.
When these operators first started their scam sites they appeared as generic scam sites that pretended to retail hundreds of discounted consumer goods, gadgets and various knick-knacks.
However, over the past few months, we believe the operators have not only found it more effective but less time consuming (enabling them to create more scam sites) to target reputable name brands and pretend to offer huge ‘sales’ on those name brand goods.
Shared below is the complete list of retail scams that we we know to be affiliated with IToyStudio and the Support@JDOnline Network:
Targeted Name Brands
- Air Jordan
- Ralph Lauren
- The North Face
Shipping, Returns & Refunds
Orders are said to be delivered with DHL Express within 2 to 3 business days.
No reference to a processing time is disclosed nor is there any information relating to refunds or exchange policies.
Obviously their shipping times are preposterous considering the fact that they guarantee delivery time within 3 business days and are allegedly based out of the UK.
However, as we have made more than clear to you, IToyStudio is not affiliated with Lego in any way, shape or form.
IToyStudio.com was privately registered on June 18th, 2019.
According to SimilarWeb, IToyStudio.com reflected an Australia rank of 719,878 as of July 14th, 2019 while 100% of their traffic stems entirely from Facebook.
It has been well-known for a couple of months now that the operators behind these fake discount sites rely almost entirely upon social media outlets to funnel unsuspecting consumers into their marketplace, IToyStudio is no different as you can see.
