Afterword – scam

    This site has the same address as the website you list.

    I figured this was a fake site, as the prices are wayyyy too low. I will be calling the Hoka Shoe Co to give them a heads up. Thanks for your article one hokashoes shop.

    1. Yep, the site is definitely a scam ! I did contact Hoka about the site. Also advised Paypal that they are using them for payments.

  2. wish i would;ve seen this before ipurchased on 4/9. And yes, PayPal has done nothing. I am so mad! Will paypal give me my money back??

    1. If PayPal has denied your claim, go to BBB. The process of filing a BBB complaint takes 10 minutes, tops. PayPal generally doesn’t fight BBB complaints. Good luck!
