Etsy sellers beware of this website, because they have harvested your Etsy listings, picture, text and feedback in order to defraud people. All the listings on this site belong to Etsy sellers and they are trying to play them off as items they are selling as their own. Are they taking money from people who have placed orders on their site? That is my guess because, how are they going to fulfill these orders if they don't have these products?
Do not purchase anything from this site SKMONIG Online Store or you will get ripped off!
I came across this site by accident on 9/21/20, when I was doing a Google search for one of my items and found my image, text and feedback on their site. I have emailed them to remove my content, but so far no response. Then it dawned on me that everything on this site is harvested from Etsy. I was able to copy the title of listings and do a google search to find the original sellers on Etsy.
This is my listing and feedback they put on their site to sell
I have contacted Etsy to see what they will say and do about this situation.. so we will see!
In doing some research the owner of this domain has 33,000 domain names, so most likely there are many other sites out there by this person who is scamming people. The website SKMONIG was just published on 9/9/20 so is fairly new. This should really make you be more careful from who you are purchasing online from.. very scary!
This is the information I have found on this scammer..
