Dresslily – Should Have Been Called Scamlily
Dresslily.com is an e-commerce fashion store. The Dresslily collection is comprised of dresses, tankinis, swimwear, sweaters, t-shirts, leggings, and intimates.
On the About Us page, the vendor claims to have established Dresslily in 2013. And, seven years later, Dressily has 14.7 million users and a combined 12 million Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram followers.
The website was established on May 5, 2012, according to WhoIs.
The Dresslily Facebook page is fairly active with nearly every post getting some attention from followers.
Not Accredited By BBB
Dresslily is not BBB-accredited. Its current BBB rating is “F” with 80 closed complaints in the last year. The complaints are regarding delivery, product description, shipping, and refund request issues. Many of the complaints iterate the same story – item shipped to a wrong address, poor quality products, improper fit, no response to refund requests, defected products, and the list goes on and on.
The BBB registration shows the address Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC, 20029. A Google search connects the address to an apartment in DC.
Afterword – Dresslily Scam
Is Dresslily a scam? 159 unanswered BBB complaints over the last three years, 80 of which were posted over the last 12 months. The complaints were regarding the same issues as mentioned above. The vendor does not and has never responded to any of the BBB complaints. Dressily has a current “F” BBB rating. What is so strange, BBB had the audacity to close the complaints without resolution. The agency is notorious for wanting credit where credit isn’t due. BBB takes pride in being a medium between consumers and businesses, but closing unresolved accounts is just shameful.
It appears the vendor has a history of shipping orders to the wrong address. This is very uncommon behavior even for a potentially fraudulent website. The vendor may be concealing something like maybe the items were not shipped after all. How many times could you possibly get the shipping address wrong? In all actuality, the orders were never shipped, but there is no evidence to back up these claims.
The Facebook followers are suspicious as well. Thousands of followers, only a few comments that have nothing to do with nothing. The majority of the links feel fake. What unofficial website tallies up nearly 12K followers in only a few years?
Last, but not least, a business search via the Connecticut Secretary of State website.
