BBB Warns About Fake Retail Websites
BUFFALO, NY (WENY) -- The Better Business Bureau is warning about fake versions of a popular online shopping website.
The BBB says in the past year alone, it's shut down more than 100 fraudulent websites targeting Overstock.com. The websites often include the world "overstock" in the same, hoping to dupe visitors.
People are asked to carefully look for the real domain name when it comes to major retail websites. Overstock executives say the website's url is just that - www.overstock.com. If it uses any additional words or letters, good chance it's fake.
