I've never ordered from them but it seems pretty suspicious that their "new products" are all less than half of retail. I think I would stay away.

Rios Fashion Shoes

Hi there,

I made the potential mistake of ordering from them a few weeks ago...sucked in by the great deals. I was suspicious but thought I would be smart by going through PayPal because might be easier to get my $ back if I never received any product. Anyway...the money was quickly deducted from my account but my order has been stuck in "pending" status for weeks now. I have attempted to e-mail the company several times and have gotten absolutely NO reply. I think I would have to recommend steering clear...you may likely end up out of money with nothing to show for it. And good luck getting a hold of someone to discuss the matter!

^ thank you for sharing and welcome to the forum

i hope everything works out for you and please post back here when / if you recieve your purchase and let us know how the transaction goes and how paypal handles it if they are fake or don't arrive

i had my cart loaded up with 5 pairs of Frye's that i've been trying to find forever in my size for a reasonable cost so my heart was pounding and seeing the paypal made me feel better but i don't know if paypal will refund if i receive fakes and my concern is they have no phone number and they have a bazillion pairs in stock of each style of shoes, like i don't even know if Frye made that many to begin with?

thanks ladies too good to be true

I too have been stuck in pending status and unable to contact the site adminstrator. Upon review of the site I noticed the "contact us" page is copied directly from cheappumashoes.cc website. Upon further "investigation" I discovered the IP is routed from Luxemborg (sp?) / Belgium and cheappumashoess.cc is from the UK..different IPs not the same domain/subscriber...the subsriber of rios shoes has several other websites dedicated to machine embroidery and other items. Rios shoes was created in Jan 2012. riosfashionshoes.com - riosfashionshoes : DomainColeta

Long story short- I too would be interested to know if you ended up receiving these shoes. I have already filed a dispute with Paypal as I have been unable to contact the seller.

Claim update

just an update on my claim - Paypal has heard from the "seller" and they have issued a tracking number to Paypal through Singpost. Even though their website specifies another shipping courier is used...Also the tracking number provided does not match the required tracking number for Singpost and imagine this - it cant be tracked! My order is still showing as pending so I'm really unsure what is going on. I will keep everyone posted and let you know if I actually receive my shoes!

Just wanted to jump in and say that ANY site that under "Contact Us" does not offer me a phone number and a physical address I would never buy from. And you can bet that if they list some yahoo or gmail address to send emails to (this one doesn't but I'd be that form goes to one) that they are not on the up and up.

Also I always sift through links on the sitemap. For instance on this one, they forgot to change some text
Shipping & Returns : Rios-shoes,Cheap Shoes & Sneakers For Men & Women
and you can see they probably own the site cheappumashoes.us as well.

And here they forgot to change some text as well
Conditions of Use : Rios-shoes,Cheap Shoes & Sneakers For Men & Women
they talk about CheapNorthFaceClothing site here.

And there it is. The yahoo address
riosshoes@yahoo.com
listed buried in the links for Gift Certificates here
Gift Certificate FAQ : Rios-shoes,Cheap Shoes & Sneakers For Men & Women

Yeah, there is no way shape or form this site is legit. I hope paypal gives you your money back!!

Well the package was definitely on its way! It arrived today HOWEVER it definitely was not shoes! It was a cheap coin pouch! My friends also received the same!! I am trying to figure out a way to get the photos to paypal (and to here) this scammer needs to be stopped! To go to an extent like this for $30 is unreal to me!

Generally speaking, I do reserach my websites - this time however I admit I did not do it until after I placed the order. I am in a wedding in 2 months and the bridal party was frantically trying to locate the fuschia RSVP Maison shoes that the bride wanted us to have. The only other places that carry them is Zappos and 6pm.com - however they did not have them in our sizes! So when we found this website we thought it was a god send! Little did we know... After I placed the order I noticed the cheappumashoes url and red flags went up, that is when I began reseraching located the ip and then located this website!

Fingers crossed paypal gets our money back to us - thankfully it was only $30 but still!! I'm amazed at the extent people will go to get a little bit of money

Oh my goodness! I had that SAME thing happen to me before I got a clue. It was on iOffer a few years ago and they sent me a keyring instead of the shoes. Since the transaction happened from China Paypal did NOT side with me on the refund even though I took pictures and even paid $15 to send the item back as instructed by Paypal. I was more than a tiny bit pissed. They got me for $60, thank god not more. Think if they do this to hundreds of people how much money they make though.

Oh Wow! That's horrible! A quick update on my situation....

didn't bother waiting out the dispute period with Paypal and escalated paypal claim; also provided paypal with link to Scam book posts to prove Rios Fashion Shoes is a SCAM! and should be shut down and held accountable. To date neither PayPal or Rios have responded.

I was order 523 so there are at least 500+ people who got scammed. Meanwhile the site is still online. I'm passed the incredulous stage. I'm PO'd ...and determined to shut Rios down whether or not I get my money back. I think getting the word out is the only way to shut the site down.


I have never heard back from the seller and don't expect to. I have read that other buyers have gotten empty envelops in the mail --why Rios bother is a mystery.

Update
Although I've yet to hear back from PayPal, I logged into my Rios account to view the order pending and payment status and noticed what I think is a payment reversal. Line reads Paypal status:Reversed not for the full amount but less $6.00. So I'm hopeful but will wait to see if the amount ends up back in my Paypal account.

Has anyone had any experience with Paypal refunds/reversals, etc?

This is what Paypal did to all of us while they were researching the claim. If you log into the resoultion center you can see if there are any updates. My friend wasn't receiving any notifications from Paypal either but checked today and saw there was a tracking number and then got a call that she had a package to sign for. That is the worst part about it is the scammer is having people sign for these coin pouch/ phone chains so they can try to argue they shipped it? How stupid do they think people are (ok ok maybe we were a bit for ordering from them but still )

Anyway I wonder if we could contact GoDaddy.com about this issue (they are the host domain according to their ip??). Will keep you guys updated. Hopefully paypal will handle it but probably not because they were from Signapore it turns out sigh so frustrating

Money returned by PayPal

Dear all,

I just wanted to update you and let you know that I DID get all of my money back from PayPal from this Rios Shoes order/scam. I hate to admit that I learned the lesson that if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Ah, but wouldn't it have been nice if the company had been on the up-and-up? As for myself, next time research first...then purchase AFTER verifying legitimacy.
