Kegura Trustpilot Reviews
A Trustpilot review posted on 8/13/2021, called Kegura jewelry “poor quality and super overpriced.” This could not be further from the trust when comparing Kegura prices with Alibaba. Typical AliExpress/Alibaba dropshipper, increasing prices by 100% to 150%.
Another Trustpilot review claimed to have placed an order with Kegura, six weeks later, no order. Another customer claimed to have placed an order on July 4, 2021, 12 days later, no order.
Trustpilot appears to be a decent platform for leaving reviews. However, there is no verification process like BBB. The vendor has done a great job hiding deceit through what appears to be a fake Trustpilot review. When a consumer leaves a review, Kegura follows up with 5 to 10 5-star reviews.
Afterword – Kegura.com A Scam
Is Kegura.com a scam? The website may not be a scam, but the merchant is an Alibaba/AliExpress dropshipper. It is a scam when online merchants increase Alibaba prices by 100% and 150%. Take, for instance, the Kegura Flutter of Elegance Necklace $169.99, compared to Alibaba’s price of $1.96. Ask yourself, is the Kegura version worth $169.99 when it ships from an Alibaba or AliExpress vendor.
Kegura is not a California business, according to the Secretary of State business verification process. The address is not correct, according to Google Maps.
The website is not registered or accredited by BBB, which says everything. BBB tries to validate businesses, helping consumers resolve issues that would not be resolved otherwise. Trustpilot, on the other hand, does not verify or help consumers and businesses resolve issues. Anyone can leave one or 100 Trustpilot reviews. In this case, Kegura has attempted to cover up questionable deceitful business practices.
And, please do not call Kegura a “business” because it is nothing more than a fraudulent online store.
If you think PayPal will protect your investment, you better think again. The company has proven time and time again, it should not be relied upon. Consumers must learn to protect their own investments. These Alibaba dropshipping scam artists are not being held accountable for defrauding American consumers, which is why they are becoming more prevalent by the day.
