Total money lost $30
Type of a scam Online Purchase
Celebrity Bella Thorne used Snapchat to put on a "giveaway" for Charles Miler watches.
The link to the giveaway was on Bella’s Snapchat story; she endorsed this fully knowing it was fake. The giveaway was for a discount on expensive watches.
I used Bella Thorne’s Snapchat link to participate in the giveaway where I earned a $300 credit. I used the credit to purchase 3 $80 watches for just $30 of shipping. Once I paid the $30, I received an email confirmation with confirmation number of my order, which made it seem legitimate. However, after a few days, I used the website to message and ask for a tracking number, they emailed back saying my order would arrive soon, but did not give me a tracking number.
Later, I called the number from the bottom of the email, but it turned out to just be a number for a random shoe store. Their website offers no contact information as far as number or address. The only way to contact them is through email on the site.
