its a lot safer.

This isn't a scam site BUT it is a pretty sneaky scam. It's called Shopper Discounts. Apparently, when you order something online, there are boxes that are automatically checked for you that you wouldn't really notice. These boxes offer $10 off your next order or something like that. Most people don't notice and so they hit purchase. What really happens is that you're signed up for the Shopper Discounts membership! They have access to your card number and charge you a monthly fee.

It just happened to me recently. I've been charged for $12 for the past four months. I finally went to the bank and asked why I was charged consistently and they told me to call this number and found out that I was actually signed up for a membership. I don't remember signing up for it at all. I guess the box was pretty sneaky? It's really my fault that I was charged and that I didn't do anything earlier, but it's still a sneaky tactic for a company to target you.

I got a full refund as well as a cancellation on my membership. This is just a heads up to anyone else who might be charged by Shopper Discounts. I googled it and there are many people out there who had this happen to them! So watch out!

yiyipf.com is scam too? o.0

How come I see a lot of girls buying from it already

I think it's listed as a "scam" because it's selling fakes. i.e. the pictures of the clothing and brands aren't what you really get. But soompiers just take it like any other "wholesale" site like CCT and JE551. People have ordered and received the items from yiyipf so that's the only reason I can think up of.

i shopped at AMI once, and the shoes weren't of good quality. The pictures online were severely photoshopped in my opinion. my first package i got dents in them and had to return them, but they said even with the damage i only get store credit. usually with most shops you can do full return when your item received is damaged, but not this AMI one.

so having said that, i was forced to "buy" other shoes with the store credit. im still not satisfied =/

I don't think AMI is a scam necessarily, but i dont' think its a good shop regardless.

i called them up on their customer service phone line before and it's asians (not trying to offend my own ethnicity) and though the guy sounded nice, its still not that great in that later on the number changed or something. eh.

I really dislike shopping online.

But about AMI, I never shopped from there, but my mom has.

She thought the quality of the shoes sucked and it took a longgg~ time to get to her.

So I wouldn't call it a scam...just a realy sucky place to get things. lol.

Yeah about amiclubwear, I ordered boots from them once and it took 2 months for them to ship it out. Regardless, I'm not ordering from them again.
