Yahoo has serviced this fake website ad for at least 3 months now, even after I've provided previous feedback. They must value the profit on sales they receive for the ad, regardless of the affect on Yahoos user base.
Let me do my part to help my fellow users by pointing out that among the numerous posts here I see for SO MANY different illegal ads, my experience was with the 80% off Dewalt Store ad (I see a trend with all the fraudulent ads claiming 80% off whatever product they are using at the time; Oculous, Bose, Le Cruiset etc.).
Do not even click on the link for Dewalt Store. I made the mistake of signing up for an account on their fake website and making a purchase using PayPal. I can only guess they have access to all of that relevant personal information now. It was immediately clear after the purchase that it was all fake, but PayPal made me wait almost a month and a half before issuing a refund, even though they were alerted to the fraudulent nature of the purchase within an hour of when it was made. Policies, I get it, but I'm sending out this warning in the hopes that the same thing doesnt happen to you, as it is no easy or quick fix.
And finally, one more plea to Yahoo to vett the origins of these paid ads in an effort to better protect your user base. I've used Yahoo since its inception, since almost the beginning of the internet itself, and am finding more reasons than not, lately, to give up on ever using ANY of Yahoos services again. Please consider closely and a response would be niceJ L supported this idea ·
