    There is a Facebook ad circulating around promoting a FREE Razer Goliathus from a website that is obviously claiming to be owned or operated by Razer. I'm sure Razer doesn't use a shopify template as they have a dedicated web development team to design their store.

    The website in question is "www.Razer-Gaming.com". They are saying you must pay shipping (get ripped off) to receive the mouse pad. Just be aware, I'm pretty sure this is a fake site as it just screams suspicious all over it. They are also using Razer logos in their advertisements. The About us page points to a 404 not found, and there are some simple spelling mistakes all over the place, which leads me to believe that English is not the primary language of the site owner.

    Yeah...not to mention the whole thing is just ugly.

    :heavy_check_mark: Centered paragraph blocks
    :heavy_check_mark: Wild and inconsistent use of fonts (I count 5+ ?)
    :heavy_check_mark: Use of serif fonts
    :heavy_check_mark: White background
    :heavy_check_mark: Old Razer logo

    They better step up their game if they want to impersonate Razer because no one's going to be fooled by that!

    Thanks for posting this! I'm glad you informed the rest of the forum. Though this one is fairly obvious, make sure follow the criteria @Raijin mentioned before trusting the site. Even if the replica is near-perfect, post on this forum if you have the slightest bit of doubt as Razer is one of the most "knocked-off" brands in the world and many people will benefit from scam reports such as this!

    Okay, I looked through and (for fun) went through the checkout options entering in fake names and addresses. Even if it was legitimate and would send you the mouse mat. It's more expensive! :joy: The mouse mat is free but shipping is $24.99. The Goliathus is only $13.99 on the official Razer website.

    This isn't official from us (clearly) - thanks for the heads up - we'll do something about it.

    To be fooled by this - you probably deserve it.

    There are SO many warning signs.

    Come on! :neutral_face:

    Well, it's pretty fair to say so.

    The internet can teach you some amazing lessons.

  20. Yup still alive and kicking.

    The © symbol and the Paypal logo make it look sooooo official though, so do the spelling mistakes and the headache I have from all the fonts
