Review – [Dangerous Retail Scam Exposed]

Yeaun ( is the latest trending scam starting to pick up traction within the online retail industry.

Likely affiliated with the ZodBuy and Kmkai scam that we have been exposing over the past week and a half, Yeaun reflects similar aesthetics to both verified scams and fits the mold of a fake online retailer that cannot be trusted.

To learn more regarding what we are coining to be the Yeaun scam we invite you to read our honest, unbiased review disclosed below.

About Yeaun

Yeaun appears to be an online marketplace that supports an ample selection of baby shoes.

Reflecting a minimalistic site template, Yeaun allegedly supports up to 135 pairs of baby shoes while offering a wide range of their inventory at what many would consider to be competitive price points.

Among one of the characteristics that makes such a dangerous retail scam would be how their site fails to arouse much suspicion amongst unsuspecting consumers.

Unlike many fraudulent online retailers that employ similar scam tactics, Yeaun does not try to bait consumers by pretending to offer huge online savings or ridiculous online sales that are clearly too good to be true.

Instead, Yeaun takes a more conservative approach (like ZodBuy and Kmkai) to scamming by simply setting up what appears to be a genuine retailer that offers competitive price points.

As a whole, however, Yeaun is NOT a legitimate retailer.

Who is Behind Yeaun?

Yeaun claims to be a, “a professional and reliable online shopping center..” yet they fail to disclose any verifiable ownership or corporate information.

Apart from an anonymous contact submission form featured on their Contact page, Yeaun only discloses the following identifying information:

Karley Adney
3717 Brunswick Drive
Carmel, IN 46033
United States

When cross-referencing ‘Karley Adney’ with Yeaun across social networks and search engines we were unable to verify the legitimacy of Karley Adney (the same instances happened with both and

The only other form of contact we are provided would be the email address

To add, Yeaun’s Privacy & Security and Terms of Use pages imply that is operating on its own accord while no shred of identifying information can be found.

Shipping & Refunds

Unlike with ZodBuy and Kmkai, which reflected identical shipping and return policies, Yeaun appears to reflect a variation of those policies.

Whether the con-artists behind this growing network of scams have caught wind of our reviews and made alternations we are not entirely sure.

While the format of these policies may be mixed around, when further investigated you can still connect many similarities and quickly deduce that the policy pages of Yeaun were taken from the same template used for both ZodBuy and Kmkai.

Domain Insight was privately registered on March 29th, 2019 through the GoDaddy, LLC registrar.

According to SimiliarWeb, does not reflect any web rankings according to their market intelligence report.

This could partially be due to the fact that Yeaun is a recently incepted domain, therefore the site has not had much time to accrue much organic traffic.

As with the ZodBuy and Kmkai scams we exposed, Yeaun appears to be relying heavily upon Facebook advertisement campaigns to solicit and bait consumers into their retail trap.

Yeaun Red Flags

Lack of Transparency

Yeaun does not provide verifiable ownership or identifying information.

No mention of a corporate entity can be found while the legitimacy of the entity known as Karley Adney is a total mystery.

More likely than not, ‘Karley Adney’ is nothing more than a figment of some demented scammers imagination used as a scapegoat to relay liability.

Affiliation with Known Scams is structured and organized with a similar site template of the ZodBuy scam and Kmkai scam that we exposed recently.

Not to mention that considerable portions of their policy pages are derived from both scam sites.

1 Year Domain Registration

Many phony online retailers will reduce their overhead costs by only registering their sites for a duration of 1 year.

Whereas, most legitimate online retailers that plan to stick around for years to come, will pay more upfront for 2, 5 or 10 year domain registrations to reduce their long-term overhead costs.

Clearly, does not plan to stick around for long.

Anonymous Contact Methods

Yeaun fails to disclose any identifying forms of contact.

Sure they disclose an address but you search that address in Google Maps you may notice how the address yields a residential address.

A residential address that we were unable to verify in affiliation with Karley Adney or

No telephone number, corporate entity or verifiable forms of contact can be found at, just how the scammers want it.

Is a Scam

Yes, is a scam.

Yeaun Scam Review

The creators behind the Kmkai and ZodBuy scams thought that they would only need to make a few minor alternations to their scam sites to negate suspicions.

However, it is clear that Yeaun is nothing more than another link in the chain of this scam networks growing list of retail scams.

Why trust your hard-earned money with an online retailer that fails to provide verifiable ownership information or the bare-bone minimum in regards to contact methods?

Clearly, Yeaun is NOT a trustworthy online retailer and should be avoided at all costs!

    Purchased two USA made can openers in May 2019. As ofAugust 21, 2019, have not received them. I am disputing the charge with my credit card company that has issued a $14.97 credit. I learned a good lesson to only order online from reputable companies! The federal government needs to prosecute these criminals!

  2. John O.

    Update. Since I escalated my claim against to PayPal, their investigation has concluded, and it went in my favor for a full refund. PayPal was unable to obtain further information from, and the case was closed.
    Do not let these fraudsters take your money. The sooner you file a complaint, the faster a resolve in your favor will happen! Good luck, and be relentless!

  3. John O.

    Oh yeah, I definitely see a pattern here. My purchase was for $69.97!

    • Niki

      Just to follow up. After putting in a claim for “not receiving my item” PayPal refunded my money.

  4. John O.

    I’m yet another victim to this fraudulent webstore. Did a search for a Cordoba 1 2 size Coco acoustic guitar on Google, and found listed this item for $20 dollars less than the next best offer on another site. I felt it was legit since they accepted PayPal. Boy, was I ever so wrong! The very low price should’ve been a red flag, and the fact a telephone number isn’t listed. All I got after the purchase was a confirmation from PayPal, and never one from The PayPal confirmation didn’t list Yeaun, rather a Jennifer Davies as a seller, and my item was listed as numbers and letters in no recognizable way.
    Never got responses from the email provided from PayPal, and no response through their claim portal. I have since escalated my claim, and awaiting PayPal’s decision. Stay tuned

    SCAM! On 6-16-2019
    They are now on EBAY . My husband was buying a torch kit for $69.97. He caught it right after the cart and it went thru already from PAYPAL. He contacted EBAY 4 days ago. Same date as the so called purchased and never herd from them. He is now contacting EBAY again to try to dispute it. I think he is out of luck trying,but worth a try.

  7. Mark is a SCAM. REPORT THAT SH*T.

  8. Wayne Green

    Payed 69.97 with PayPal for a kayak. Received a transaction no. From PayPal but no order has come. PayPal said product protection. They tell me no refund contact the seller that is a bullshit company. I think PayPal is as much bullshit as this fraud. Deleted PayPal, back to my cards.

    • Niki

      I have since called paypal 3 times and put in a dispute after claiming over and over that this is a fraudulent site. We will see how it plays out and I will keep you posted!

  9. Farimoby

    How to I refund back from ?

  10. Niki

    I just ordered something from and from the get go it doesn’t seem legit. I called paypal immediately but they said the payment was sent. That being said, I need to wait 5-7 business days to even be able to file a complaint! I did get a reference number from my paypal call. So upset and concerned I won’t even get my paypal refund back.

  11. Mark Megrdichian is a spoof retail site in the hopes that the buyer will forfeit payment within 30 days of disputing the charge to Paypal. Unfortunately the scam works if the buyer fails to dispute in the correct or timely manner. Kind of like a bad drug deal. Chinese Crooks!

  12. tim g

    bought a compact circular saw(worxsaw wx429l) from fake website “”( for$25.97(paypal).
    results from a online search for mini saws showed several pictures of saws, same model but half the price(should’ve seen red flags but didn’t). so when it never arrived, i inquired about website and saw that it was a con. hard lessen to learn but never buy before researching website first. am glad i paid with paypal and not my credit card.

  13. Melissa

    This same domain or crook or whatever you choose to call it runs another scam site that got me so BEWARE it is the same people this is how I found this page. I filed a complaint through PayPal . What I do not understand is how are they still allowed to operate if all of this is going on ? They even tell you …..小芬 黄
    The receiver of this payment is Non-US – Verified…..
    Chinese or whatever the sqigglies represent CROOKS! Got me for 100$

    • Heather

      I purchased a water slide and have not received from this seller through PayPal.omg I haven’t received anything.I spent 69.98 did aypal give you your money back? Did they send you an email saying your item shipped but no way to track it?

      • Bscott

        I did the same thing, bought the water slide, when I read this I immediately disputed the purchase with PayPal to get my money back, if PayPal doesn’t do it I will contact my bank

      How can I get my money back. Pay pal said I needed to contact the seller.. And all that information is FAKE

  15. Dalton Deck

    scam. when I went to the post office they said the address was never supposed to go to where I live.

  16. Giulioangelo

    Total scam. I purchased an electronic lock. I thought it was strange that a baby shoe site was selling this lock. The price was a fraction of what other online retailers are selling it for. I figured the transaction was somewhat safe since it went through PayPal. I’ll be contacting them.
    In PayPal the transaction shows as:

    Seller info
    小芬 黄

    Purchase details
    products B4ZM61Z
    Item #Store Receipt

    You’ll see “PAYPAL *HUANGXIAOFE” on your card statement.

  17. Shannon Wu

    I too ordered something that I haven’t been able to get any shipping information about. I just called PayPal to start a dispute and because I’ve already reached out to twice now with no reply, the merchant now has ten days to reply to PayPal otherwise I win my complaint. Give PayPal a call, they seem to do right for the customer.

    Purchased a mini bmx bike last week and it did clear thru paypal. The order shows shipped and when i tracked the item, it shows shipped from NJ thru DHL Commerce and now being held in WV thru USPS. I’m guessing it will ship out from there and destination is WA state.

  19. Adele Sorger

    I purchased a bike trailer for pets yesterday from for $54. The payment cleared Pay Pal. Do you think I will ever receive this item. I did not notice any warnings to change passwords of bank accounts to prevent identity theft. Since the payment went through PayPal is it secure?

  20. Mike Monica

    So what is the extent of the scam? Not receiving the product you bought forcing you to demand a PayPal refund?
