Fraud email from company with similar name

graphic that shows a cell phone on the left open to an email of an order confirmation. The text on the right reads: SCAM ALERT - THIS IS NOT ME If you receive an order confirmation from "bluebuddhaboutique" via "commentsold" for something you did not order, this is NOT my company

If you received an order confirmation about an order you did NOT place, and the order is via commentsold on Facebook, that message is spam. It is also not my company (I’ve never sold through commentsold), but likely instead refers to another clothing company with an identical name.

The other company that started doing business as “The Blue Buddha Boutique” does sell through commentsold, so you may wish to reach out to them. (I did contact them but have not received a response. As of the writing of this post, the contact form on their website is broken, but you may still be able to reach them on Facebook). Their info:

After receiving dozens of messages from upset and confused people, I reached out to commentsold and received this reply from them:
