Hi everyone.. just a heads up on buying Uggs..
there are lots and lots of websites selling fake uggs, most of them are coming from China. There is a blog about fake uggs, so if you do a search on "uggs" i strongly suggest checking this site out to see if the website is for real and not from a scammer.

I have had exceptional luck with UGG purchases through for the past several years. They are a 30+ yr old family owned co based in the US. They are honest, accurate and have the best selection of UGGs I've found. They are a major client of "Deckers" and sell only the real UGG AUSTRALIA Brand. I am a loyal customer and have purchased UGG Slippers, UGG Boots, UGG Slides.......for my entire family - with no shipping issues, no billing issues. They are the real deal! "Deckers" has recently requested that ALL VENDORS remove their "Decker" UGGs from AMAZON. You will need to go directly to to be sure that you are purchasing the real thing! LoveMyOverlandUggs :)

Hi Sammo,
I believe Overland is not on the list of fakes.. i was just trying to warn people that there are lots of fakes being sold by scammers who create websites pretending to sell uggs.. we got scammed from one company called ruedemode, haven't received nothing to this day since dec. 9'th, had to file claims w/ bank and the BBB. we learned our lesson, end up buying the real deal from nordstroms just in time for x-mas for our daughter. i'm now expecting mine in a few days.. just let everyone you know not to do a "great deal on uggs" search if looking to buy them..

Can I please ask someone a question? I don't own any UGGs but have fell in love with the classic cardys. I just want to know if they are comfy since they are expensive and if you order your normal size in these. Any input would be appreciated.

Fake UGG Boots websites registered by Yuan Chen

I've read some posts its been discovered that a person called Yuan Chen of Meiyuan Road, Putian, 351100 CN China is the registrant of most of these domains.

So if you are in doubt check the registants name through - its very simple to do just put in the domain name ie. and press return. If it comes back as YUAN CHEN or indeed anyone in China (country code CN) AVOID.

To Clarify: UGG Australia DO NOT allow their goods to be stocked or sold by anyone other than their Authorised retailers. There was a big news story recently when it was found that COSTCO had obtained of some legit ones and were selling them in their stores unauthorised - so you can be absolutely 100% sure they are FAKES if the site is Chinese in origin!

I have also found GuGe Co.,Ltd is a common registrant as well.

Here are other Tips on recognising these Chinese fake UGG boots sites

1) Check the contact us page - if there is no legitimate UK phone number and only e-mail or input form support then AVOID. If the e-mail is not the same domain as the website domain or an easy to set up gmail, msn or yahoo address then AVOID.

Some small and legit UK sites offer e-mail support only but none that I know of the have genuine UGG Australia product for sale and do customer support this way.

2) When you Checkout and the personal details page is NOT secure (the SSL padlock is not shown on the browser) then AVOID. Just the thought of all this customer financial and personal data on a dodgy server in China is enough to give me nightmares!

3) If you read some text and it contains very Poor English then AVOID

4) All the shiny NextTag, Bizrate, ControlScan and BBB icons and "There currently are 375 guests and 235 members online" messages are all there to fool you into thinking this is an established trustworthy website - AVOID

Like everything else on this earth, UGGS are made in China. UGG is a style not a brand.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 3, 2009 8:51:44 PM PST
Sheepskin boots are called uggs in Australia. Uggs is a brand, as is EMU; Aussie Dogs, Whooga, etc.

I found a website that sells all UGG boots with half of the price.
not sure if this website sells the real UGG or the fake one?
can someone check it for me?

also to my original post.. we never did get the boots from ruedemode.. they also changed the website and took off the "ugg" name..
not sure if they ever got caught... the bank gave my boyfriend his money back, and i gave the bank all the info they needed and the names of those people that scammed... everything all good now :)
i got my uggs from nordstrom... can order online or in store..
be very careful on which website you go to, the official ugg website has a list of stores authorized to sell uggs also...

Overland and Decker are not selling authentic UGG boots. Thier boots are not handmade and they are manufactured in China.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 9, 2009 9:38:16 PM PST
Nordstorms boots are made in China, they are not authentic like they claim. I went there to purchase them and was very disappointed to find out that they were actauly selling knock offs at the same price that you can get the real ones for. If the y are selling fake Uggs what else is fake there. You should have seen the look on the sales people face when I ask them about why they were selling these fake boots for so much. Thier reply was bcause we can get then cheaper out of China. What they mean is they can make a bigger profit.Look here for the rea ones and how to spot the fakes.

Posted on Dec 9, 2009 9:44:45 PM PST
If you want the real deal UGGS check out this site. If your UGG boots are not made in Austialia dont buy them. Unless they tell you that they are knock offs and they give you the knock off price and you dont mind. Also watch the EMU's.

The uggaustralia website list authorized U.S. ugg retailers and online retailers. Check them out before purchasing.

Nordstroms Uggs are NOT fake.

Uggs arent made in Australia anymore and the quality has dropped because of it.I have an old pair of the classic uggs from about 5 years ago and the new cardys.Both are real but as the popularity of uggs increased they needed to be made elsewhere. People need to think -.- Nordstroms too big of a store to be knowingly selling illegal fake boots.

To the commentor about the cardys,I Love them.Theyre awfully snug and you can even wear them out in a LIGHT snow and not get them soaked through. Like all Uggs,they run big so get a size down.

This is very weird! I got a pair of silver Ugg boots for Xmas that came from one of the companies listed as being a fake company in China. They came in the same real Ugg boot box that all my other Uggs came from, they had the Ugg guarantee card in them, the label was the same and I checked them out in the store. They are totally identical to the "real" ones that also say "made in China" on them. Also, they smell identical to every other "real" one I've ever gotten over the years. And they came in about two weeks. So, I don't know what to make of it.

The fake uggs are cheaply made and looks cheap. The stitching loosens. Not worth the cheap price.

I just got scammed myself! 73.00!! Could have gotten them at a shoe store locally! I should of been more careful! The Website looked professional but did not say where the company was from! They are most definetly fake uggs!! IT is so obvious! The site is called UGGKICKSE! They said I was crazy they were not fake and I could not get my money back! The real issue is that they just don't fit my daughter! I jumped 2 whole sizes and a real UGG most defintely would have fit. She has a size 2 in the real UGG and they are just now getting to small. Now I am most likely out of 73.00! How do I report this site to BBB since it is from China!? VERY MAD and want to stop these people!!

do not use to buy Uggs! Beware of this site. They do not reply to to emails after making purchase and you will not receive boots. If you have made this mistake already call your credit card company and dispute. I suggest not buying Uggs online. There are hundreds of fake sites and they all look like the real thing. Hope this helps.

It's about time the real fraud was exposed, i.e. UGG Australia itself. If Decker's wants to call them UGGs, UGs or UGHs, then that's their prerogative as a business. However, these are NOT genuine UG boots which were created, made & sold in Australia (the real one, not the appropriated corporate one of the Decker brand) for decades before Decker's was even thought of.

There is NOTHING Australian about UGG Australia and it's about time Decker's were taken to court to have that part of their brand removed as misleading in implication, if not in fact. They don't mind using Australian courts to protect their brand/trademark - which is hilarious as Australian businesses have been making ug (not UGG) boots in Australia for nearly a century - as if they invented the bloody things. If you lot were serious about supporting the genuine article, you'd tell Decker's where to jam it and support the real, i.e. Aussie, deal.

But of course, you'll cry hypocritical tears about those dirty rotten Chinese ripping off a fake brand that is made in China, yes China (where do you think Decker's gets them made - certainly not the U.S.), instead of Australia. So they are still ripping you off as to the genuine price of the boots. Now the fraudsters are crying foul at the scammers ripping off their already phony brand. Fantastic. The irony is hilarious...

So ask yourselves as you search for the genuine article, who are the real FRAUDS? *tic toc, tic toc*
