Montana Buffalo Supply – Does Not Utilize Genuine Buffalo Leather
Montanabuffalo-supply.com is an online retailer of duffel bags, wallets, belts, jackets, shoes, and accessories. The entire product line is heavily discounted by more than 1/3 of the retail price.
The website does not have an About Us page. The Refund Policy clearly states only “regular-priced” items are fundable. Shipping to the United States can take between 12 and 25 days.
The Contact Us page does not provide any significant details about the website. No physical address or phone number for validation purposes.
Another site is shopmontanabuffalo.com. It isn’t clear if the two sites are connected but they probably are because they sell virtually the same products.
The Montana Supply Company
It isn’t clear whether the Montana Supply Co (montanasupplyco.com) is connected to this website. The Montana Supply Company was registered in the state of Montana on January 17, 1900. For whatever reason, the registration expired 20 years later on January 17, 1920. According to the website, Montana Supply is located at 25 Town Center Ave., Ste 161195, Big Sky, MT 59716. The address know belongs to a boutique cafe known as “Toast Big Sky.”
The same or similar products are found on Alibaba and AliExpress for a fraction of the cost. For example, the Montana Buffalo Adventure Bag is free but shipping is $79.98. An additional $9.99 for insurance. Alibaba sells the same bag for $11.39 plus $37.00 for U.S. shipping. You must remember, Alibaba ships from China, so shipping expenses are always going to be higher.
The Montana Buffalo Anchor Bracelet is $19.99 including shipping. The same bracelet on Alibaba is $0.48 plus shipping. Alibaba requires bulk purchases to make the shipping appear more reasonable.
The website was registered on June 17, 2020, via a proxy.
Afterword – Montana Buffalo Supply Scam
The website is not BBB-accredited. It isn’t even listed on BBB. Since it is fairly new, there really hasn’t been enough time for American consumers to get scammed and complain about it. The site does not have About Us or Contact Us pages, making it very difficult to verify.
Besides, who wants to purchase from an unknown website and pay more when the same items are available on Amazon, Alibaba, and AliExpress. The same bracelet on Amazon is $8.99 and free shipping. Several customers complained about the quality, alleging it began peeling after wearing once and broke after two weeks.
Is Montana Buffalo Supply a scam?
There isn’t enough message to validate the legitimacy of the website. The website is not listed on BBB or Yelp, as the new hasn’t worn off yet. If this is a scam, it will not be much longer before it becomes obvious. If you see something on the website you like, just purchase it from Amazon, Alibaba, or AliExpress. You will save a bit of money in the process.
