Lately, we have seen an alarming number of Facebook sponsored ads circulating for scam shopping sites that we want to warn you about.
Disney Dooney & Bourke Facebook Scam Ads
These Facebook scam ads claim you can purchase the latest Disney Dooney & Bourke handbags at a 75% off discount, like the screenshot below.
The creators of these fake Disney Dooney ads will use official photos from Disney Store or social media photos from real Disney accounts to make their Facebook ads seem official. They have even stolen photos from our site! They advertise Flower and Garden Festival 2020 or Disney Dogs Sketch for as low as $29.95. These ads are scams and 100% fake.
While we and knowledgable Disney Dooney & Bourke collectors try to warn other buyers by commenting on these scam ads, the fake sellers delete these comments so people continue to fall victim to this scam. To see current information on Facebook scammers, visit our Facebook post. If you have information or screenshots to contribute to our Facebook post, we welcome your comments so that we can continue to warn fellow Disney Dooney shoppers.
New Facebook Scam Ads – May 2021
The scammers have updated their ads with more recent Disney Dooney and Bourke collections. We have seen scams advertising the 2020 Haunted Mansion Collection as well as the Disney Side Kicks Collection for up to 69% off. The scammers are relentless.
More Facebook Scam Ads – August 2020
As new collections are being released, Facebook scammers are also updating their ads to reflect the new Disney Dooney & Bourke merchandise. We have seen scam advertisements for a variety of collections, including the Little Mermaid purse collection.
These ads advertise handbags for 49% and 50% off.
These ads offer even deeper discounts of up to 70% off. Don’t fall for them! The vast majority of commenters who have fallen for these scams never received anything from the scammers. They simply took their money and ran!
Fake Disney Dooney & Bourke Shopping SitesThe Facebook scam ad above looks like it will take you to Disney Store but when you click on it, they will take you to a random Shopify store or a website that you do not recognize. Here are some ways to spot a fake Disney Dooney & Bourke shopping site, like the one below:
- The website design doesn’t match the real Disney Store website
- The website URL says Shopify or doesn’t match the real Disney Store website
- There are misspellings on the website
- Original retail prices are incorrect
- Finally, the prices are too low to be true!
If you compare the original retail prices of the handbags on the fake site compared to Disney Store, you’ll see even the retail prices are wrong. The Flower & Garden 2020 tote should be $298 retail but the scam site lists it as $120 retail before their fake discount. Even after a bag becomes sold out online, you can always use our site to find the original retail price of almost every Disney Dooney handbag ever made.
A brand new $298 handbag for only $30?? Sounds too good to be true because it is!
If you must buy from a third party because the print is sold out or retired, make sure you buy from a reputable seller using PayPal through an invoice or pay as goods and services because both options offer Buyer Protection.
We also recommend buying from eBay because you can check a seller’s feedback and eBay protects your purchase. However, you should still avoid buying the 2 Disney Sketch silhouettes that we know are being counterfeited, except directly from Disney Store.
