Today's post is a PSA for all my fellow bloggers who work with online retailers and for all my readers who buy clothes and accessories online. As you all know, I work with brands and retailers on a regular basis. I love to find new stores and stylish stuff and love to share them on Style Delights. Therefore when I got an opportunity to introduce an online retailer reecn.com to my readers, I accepted it. Their website looked professional, their merchandise looked beautiful and my preliminary research about them showed that some pretty established blogs also have worked with them. So I decided to host a giveaway for them on my blog - afterall, who doesn't like their readers to win giftcards? As with all my giveaways, when a winner was chosen by random.org (in this case a lovely reader Lorna), I contacted the Reecn.com representative who had been emailing me to check that Lorna met all the requirements (that she liked their FB page etc). They did not reply. I contacted Lorna and told her that I am waiting to hear from them. We both waited for few more days. I contacted them thru all their social media channels and contact forms, but surprise - no reply! Then I contacted the bloggers who have worked with reecn.com and found out Reecn.com are less than stellar in terms of their professionalism. When I sent them a message saying I'll let my readers know about them, they sent me a shirt to style! This shirt is one of the shoddiest pieces of workmanship I have ever seen! Its ill fitting, ill-sewn and just plain un-wearable.
|The buttons and the panels of the shirt are not aligned, the sleeves are asymmetrical - not for the style though!|
BTW, here are their fake social media profiles - if you like them, please unlike/unfollow so that you don't accidentally advertise them to your friends and followers.
Reecn Facebook (Fakebook, more like!)
Reecn Pinterest (THEY ARE NOT LOCATED IN USA AS THEY CLAIM HERE!)
Reecn Twitter (lying birdie!)So please beware of this online retailer, and share about their scam to your friends.If you are a blogger, share it with your readers too! During my research about Reecn.com, I came across some other fraudulent and unprofessional retailer via some other consumer alert websites. Here is a list of some more fake retailers who are trying to work with bloggers to gain trust among their readers.
As always, Style Delights vows to keep the readers informed and the reviews honest! Till we talk again!!
