The Free Watch Scam

The Free Watch Scam

This site has been slowly going viral over the past few weeks, it’s heavily promoted on Facebook.

In reality, it’s technically not a complete scam as you probably will get a watch BUT it’s certainly not free and you’re paying around 2/3rd over the top for the watch!

The true cost of the 'free' watches

The true cost of the ‘free’ watches

How do we know it’s a scam?

  • The photos of the watches are edited copies of the Daniel Wellington (cheaper on Amazon if you actually want to buy the legit watch) watches.watch-fake
  • The copies of the watches can be found for around £2-£3 on various Chinese sites or here (much cheaper than the £6.89 they charge). You even get free postage & it won’t be stopped at Customs due to the low value.
  • The site doesn’t mention the actual cost of postage until you’ve entered your payment details (a typical no-no)
  • The Whois data is hidden for the site, ANYONE could have set this site up and ANYONE could be buying/seeing your details &/or about to send you spam to the email you used! Learn about Alias emails!
  • Good news: Photos on their Facebook page indicate they buy the above watches on the cheap in bulk, then redistribute them (for a profit) in the UK. Note: The Royal Mail postage mark below.

  • The photos they use of people wearing the watches are not taken by themselves, they’re copied photos that have had the other brands info removed.
