Has anyone heard of kaoori.co.uk?

Post by Adam Raoof » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:04 pm

I am considering buying some products from kaoori.co.uk - but I have never heard of them before, though they are apparently based in Covent Garden. Anyone else here bought anything from them?

I think you'll find the Covent Garden address is a mail forwarding service (https://www.1stformations.co.uk/busines ... s-service/) and they're actually based in Armenia (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/comp ... 7/officers).

Seems legit: https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/kaoori.co.uk

I just had it pointed out to me that either some or possibly all the reviews listed above are fake. Trustpilot is generally an excellent resource. The absence of negative reviews likely means that the shop is not a scam, but the fake reviews certainly give pause for thought.

You'll see that all three have reviewed just a few companies, but all seem to have reviewed "Mobile Signal Boosters" and "Segal Jewelry" as well as "Kaoori"!

Perhaps buy a small test item before placing a bigger order..

I had them contact me recently about putting links on my league website to advertise equipment at a discount - looks like they have been on a major marketing spree.
