Scam Description

About a month and a half ago I was interested in purchasing a Bogg Bag for my upcoming vacation. I googled Bogg Bag and diligently checked for the official website. Once on the site, it was clearly the correct one. There was a sale being offered for 2 bags, which I purchased for $138. The bags arrived and I did not think much of them. After one use, I noticed the “B’s” on the handle had worn off, which I thought strange but did not investigate further. A friend of mine recently ordered two bags using the same sale which she found on her own, not sent to her by me. When her bags arrived, she was instantly aware they are counterfeit. The bags are the same as mine – they do not say Bogg Bag at the bottom, do not have the plastic pouch inside, nor do they have the plastic buttons on the handles. I instantly reached out to the company who responded by telling me they do not sell counterfeit bags and can be of no assistance. In discussing this, I have no found a coworker who had the same issue. When I went on the Bogg Bag website, there was no other website to visit. This was clearly the official site. I feel disappointed that the company is doing nothing to protect their consumers from this counterfeit site or from being rerouted to this counterfeit site when entering the Bogg Bag website. I have now lost $138 since Bogg Bag will do nothing to correct this issue. I have never fallen victim to a counterfeit site prior to this due to being vigilant in how I online shop. I am extremely disappointed in the company’s lack of accepting responsibility in this scam.
