William Mills ‘Free’ Watch Scam? – Shopper Alert!

A recently pioneered retail site found at william-mills.com is the latest online ‘retailer’ offering free goods, but what’s the catch?

The catch is that not only will you not likely receive the free watches that you were hoping too but more importantly would be how the operators now have your disclosed personal and financial information you shared during checkout.

Not all watches featured at William Mills are free, just select ones.

About William Mills

William-Mills distinguishes themselves as a straight-forward online retailer that offers fashionable and modern watches for men and women.

The site features 6 pairs of watches for both genders.

Each watch reflects a price tag of $80.00.

Earlier this week, it was reported that William Mills conducted several advertising campaigns where they offered their watches for free.

All you had to do was visit their site, select the watch, and conduct a checkout.

What the operators failed to tell you, and won’t tell you, however, is that their sole mission is to acquire your personal and financial information.

Which becomes gathered when completing the checkout process (due to having to pay for shipping).

From there, and in our experience of exposing retail scams, it is not uncharacteristic for these malicious site operators to try conducting up-charges on disclosed payment methods (such as credit cards and debit cards) and more often than not these transactions are attempted several times until the buyer becomes aware that their card now has been excessively charged.

While we are unable to verify with utmost certainty that William Mills is acting of the same accord, their shady retail site and lack of credibility make them a close fit which is why we are urging online shoppers to avoid William Mills watches as a whole.

We lack the definitive evidence to fully exploit William Mills as a scam but we certainly do not feel that they are trustworthy, not until more verifiable ownership and contact information can be rendered.

William-Mills.com Scam Review

William Mills is an online retail site that operates with intentional anonymity and fails to include any verifiable contact methods for prospective shoppers.

What legitimate retailer do you know that fails to include transparent company, contact, and business purpose information?

The answer is probably not many, if any at all.

Therefore, why would William Mills be any different?

Featuring a lack of credibility and transparency are why we are urging online shoppers to avoid William Mills and their occasional ‘free’ watches.

Outcome: William Mills Cannot Be Trusted!

    I found out now they go under the name of William Millers. So I know it’s most likely a scam, but decided to send a short email asking what happened to my order. Some guy actually replied saying they are really sorry and because of Valentine’s day apparently they had an issue. They actually gave me an email address on which I could ask for a tracking number. I doubt I’ll get anything, however I still did send an email.

      Same. I emailed to see when the watches would be shipped and got a response asking for the order number. When I tried to respond the email had been disabled. It came from a “Lisa Daniels” but the email message said this:
