Budget-savvy brides may search online for a dress deal, but not every website is a dream come true. According to MarkMonitor, a brand protection firm, you should look for these red flags. First, beware of any price that's too good to be true. Second, always check the return and privacy policies. If they are confusing or seem ambiguous, you could be dealing with a scam artist.
Also, check the dress designer's website to see if the webiste you are considering buying the dress through is an "authorized" retailer.
You can also run search of the website, by adding the word "scam," to see if there are any complaints.
