Explore-Boutique.com Review – Avoid this SCAM Retailer!

Explore Boutique (Explore-Boutique.com) is amongst the latest line of shady online sites posing as discounted online retailers.

Presented as an overseas company alleged based out of China, Explore Boutique allegedly offers an abundant supply of consumer goods that reflect “savings” ranging between 50% to 95% on average.

To find out more regarding the Explore Boutique operation and why you should avoid their ‘retail’ site as a whole, we invite you to read our unbiased review.

About Explore-Boutique.com

As we’ve briefly touched upon, Explore-Boutique.com is structured to appear as an overseas online discount marketplace that supports a wide variety of consumer goods.

The category of assets allegedly supported at Explore-Boutique.com are as followed:

  • Electronic Products
  • Motorcycle Accessories
  • Toys & Hobbies
  • Cosplay Costumes
  • Outdoors

Other supported inventory supposedly offered through Explore-Boutique would be apparel goods, gaming systems and select knick-knacks.

Affiliated Sites

When we were conducting our investigation into Explore-Boutique, we came across the following contact information:

Email: explore-boutique@zjzemail.com

Phone: 18659470786

Alleged Corporate Entity: ZG Technology, Co., Limited

Address: UNIT 04,7/F, Bright Way Tower, No. 33 Mong Kok Road, Kowloon, HK.

When we researched the alleged phone number of Explore-Boutique, we noticed that it was already associated with other sites that reflect the same site template, contact information and of course many spelling and grammatical errors.

The affiliated sites would be:

  • Gather-Trend.com
  • Fashion-Assistant.com
  • OurGiftShopping.com

To add, the corporate structure allegedly behind all of three of these domains has been declared a scam by many consumers on Facebook.

What we found interesting would be how all of these domains fail to include ZG Technology Co., Limited as their overseeing entity in their Terms of Service.

Instead most of the domains reflect that they are operating on their own accord, all except for Fashion-Assistant.com which is said to be overseen by OurGiftShopping.com.

Domain Insight

Explore-Boutique.com was privately registered on September 18th, 2018.

Gather-Trend.com was privately acquired on September 18th, 2018.

Fashion-Assistant.com was privately registered on September 18th, 2018.

OurGiftShopping.com was privately acquired on September 20th, 2018.

All of this information can be found in a WHOIS domain report and only reinforces the fact that something exceptionally shady and unethical is likely taking root here.

Why You Should Avoid Explore-Boutique.com

Lack of Transparency

Explore-Boutique, Gather-Trends, Fashion-Assistant and OurGiftShopping fail to disclose verifiable ownership information while failing to make any reference to the corporate entity ZG Technology Co., Limited in their Terms of Service.

Clone Retail Sites

Initially we set out to investigate into the murky depths of Explore-Boutique.com only to find out that this fictitious retail site reflected several clone entities.

More likely than not, the creators behind these fake online marketplaces are going to keep launching fake retailers as long as consumers are gullible enough to fall for them, so we don’t anticipate this is our last bout with them.

Absence of Feedback

There isn’t much community feedback regarding any of these entities except for the corporate entity ZG Technology Co., Limited, which is being declared a deceptive scam on Facebook.

Not a Secure Site

Explore-Boutique.com, Gather-Trend.com and Fashion-Assistant.com are not secure sites.

This means that any information submitted on any of these domains could be at risk and be used without your consent to unknown ends.

Is Explore-Boutique.com Legit?

Obviously, Explore-Boutique.com is NOT a legitimate online retailer, nor are any of their associated retailers.

Explore-Boutique.com Review Conclusion

Explore-Boutique.com reflects all the exhibited characteristics of an online retailer that is too good to be true.

It is evident that the scammers behind Explore-Boutique were not satisfied with having one scam site so they went out and created a few more.

Gather-Trend.com, Fashion-Assistant.com and OurGiftShopping.com are FAKE online retailers that should NOT be trusted!

Given the indisputable information shared in our impartial review above, we are obviously recommending our readers to avoid these fictitious online retailers through any means necessary.

Furthermore, do not only yourself but others a courtesy by sharing this review and avoiding these fake online marketplaces.

The quicker we can get the word out regarding these scam operations, the faster they can be eradicated from existence.

Outcome: We do NOT advice shopping with Explore-Boutique OR any of their affiliated sites!

Blacklisted Sites: Explore-Boutique.com, Gather-Trend.com, Fashion-Assistant.com & OurGiftShopping.com

    • Josh

      Hey I did the same but i felt it was too good to be true and i took a screenshot of the purchase. I also got an email after the purchase that shows the payment amount and payment number. Maybe you can use something like that for a dispute?

  25. Jon

    I just received a MASK from City of Industry in CA and I know where that place is and called them, I talked to one of the people that speaks little english and I told him that I received an item but this is not what I ordered. He then told me that he will get back to me, I even told him that I know where you are and do not make me go there. I’m still waiting for BEN to call me back.

    • Julina

  27. Alexander Miranda

  28. David Aragon

    I ordered a Nintendo Switch along with 2 games and I just got a package today but it turned out to be a red weird looking mask like the one in the movie V for Vendetta. I’m so pissed right now like who TF does something like this?? Did anyone else get a mask too? I want my money back!!! Anyone know how??

    • Adam S

      Same thing just happened to me. I’m trying to get a refund right now. So far no luck.



  29. Josh

    Bought a switch December 31st, still haven’t received it.

  30. Dennis

    Bought a ” life size” replica of thors hammer for $65.00 regular $514.00. It came today. It would be life size if thor was approximately 2 feet tall . Video shows a “life size”guy smashing doors with it, swinging it etc. The only door this could smash, and probably with great difficulty would be the plastic door to barbies dream house and as for swinging it by its ” real leather strap” it swings nicely around my index finger . All in all , I guess at least something came. Ants and other small insects will now tremble in the face of the mighty mini mjolnir flyswatter.

  31. chris

    I got the switch for 50 bucks 2 weeks ago. havent heard from them. Shouldve known

    • sam

      you’ll get a mask in the mail. I just got mine, and I’m piping mad

  32. Kentokorp

    Ok if you got a “Thanks for payment” email look on there and you’ll find the brilliant website and there you can file what happened. I filed for delivery status and got a tracking number, just keep on waiting. In China, they put every order on a huge plane at once so it will take awhile.
    If its not the same order on what you got brilliant is the trade bank that will give you a full refund.

    • Sammantha E dingler

      A refund from our bank ??
