DON'T GET SCAMMED BY COUNTERFEIT PROM GOWN RETAILERS ONLINE.
HERE ARE THE FACTS:
If the price seems too good to be true, then it is.
Online retailers might show you the same images you see on the designer's website, but more often than not, these photographs are being used without permission, and you will not be receiving the same dress.
If you receive the dress, it may be a cheap knockoff version of the gown you fell in love with.
Think stiff, itchy fabrics, uneven seams discoloration, and unflattering cuts.
Always check the designer's website before making a purchase.
On every designer's website, you'll find a list of authorized retailers. These are the only stores permitted to distribute the designer's gowns.
If you have a problem with the gown, you're on your own.
Counterfeit gowns often arrive in the wrong sizes and lengths. If it's even possible to alter the gown, the cost can often exceed the purchase price, negating any discount you received by ordering the gown online.
What money back guarantee?
Often, the counterfeiters promise a money back guarantee. However, you likely won't be able to find any contact information on their website. No contact = no money back.
