Scam Description

I purchased clothes from this small brand I found on Facebook, all the comments seemed optimistic. I now know that’s because they were deleting bad comments. I received the clothes but they were completely falsely advertised. The pants stated they were denim, they were not. And after further inspection it seems these are clothes purchased from some 3rd party website like shein or fashion nova, they removed the tags or re sewed them so they didn’t have the original brand name on them. They showed pictures of the clothes on their site that were obviously not pictures of their actual products. Like they showed true denim jeans with frayed hems, what I received were pants made out of some slick material, no frayed hems, and quite a few snagged threads.
