Want to show support for The University of Oklahoma during the Rose Bowl? Your Better Business Bureau® is warning fans to beware of suspicious websites when ordering sports apparel or other merchandise online. BBB recently became aware of OUFootballStore.com, a website claiming to offer OU apparel. The website clearly bears a resemblance to the Fanatics Retail Group website Fanatics.com, a legitimate retail website, and BBB Accredited Business, based out of Jacksonville Florida. “From the poor grammar throughout the site’s pages, links that don’t work, and lack of any method of contact other than a contact us form, there are red flags screaming scam all over this website,” said Kitt Letcher, President and CEO of BBB of Central Oklahoma. If you placed an order on OUFootballStore.com but haven’t received your item, BBB recommends you take the following steps:Report your order to bbb.org/scamtracker.File a complaint with the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center at ic3.gov.Contact your bank or credit card company to dispute the charges. BBB is working on compiling the information regarding their investigation of the website and plans on handing it over to the proper authorities within the week. Also, BBB is offering the following advice when shopping online for authentic sports apparel for the Rose Bowl: Watch out for too-good-to-be-true pricing. Fake websites advertise cheap prices as a way to attract and encourage consumers to "purchase" their products and provide sensitive information. In many of these cases, either the items do not exist or they are counterfeit and of poorer quality than officially licensed merchandise.Look for contact information. Find out the business name, physical address, phone number and email address and verify that the physical address matches the business name. If no contact information or verifiable business information is listed, it's a red flag. Make sure you read the terms and conditions of sale carefully before placing an order. Know the seller. Research the company if you've never made a purchase on the website before. Check out the company on bbb.org and conduct a Google search on the website name and the word "scam." If the website is claiming to be an official site, authorized to sell licensed products, confirm this directly with the team, league or source it is claiming to be authorized by.Check website security. Before making an online purchase, check the URL of the page you're entering contact and financial information. If the URL doesn't start with "https" your information could be exposed to con artists or hackers. A security-enabled web page will begin with "https," instead of just "HTTP" and will likely have a lock symbol that displays as green to verify security. Always pay by credit card whenever possible in case you need to challenge the charge later.Keep a clean machine. Install a firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware software. Check for and install the latest updates and run virus scans regularly on your computer, tablet, and smartphone.
