For many people, the possibility of getting free jewelry and only having to pay for a shipping fee is just too good to pass up. The truth is that it is too good to be true. Many people were scammed by responding to TikTok videos of a young woman telling her story that she was fired by a jewelry store called Trugala when she was caught shopping while she was supposed to be working. Out of revenge she shares her employee discount code which she says would allow anyone using the discount code to get Trugala’s premium jewelry at for free and only have to pay shipping fees.
There are a lot of problems here. First, the woman in the TikTok video was never fired by Trugala. Rather, they hired her to do the misleading TikTok video and provided the script with the phony story. The truth is that anyone using the employee discount code would not receive premium jewelry, but instead get worthless costume jewelry worth far less than the “shipping fees”
A good place to start is that if the story were real, anyone using the employee discount code would have been committing fraud which is a good reason to avoid this scam. Also, as always when a deal sounds too good to be true, it generally is and this scam certainly qualifies in that regard. Finally, you should never shop with any company with which you are not familiar without investigating it thoroughly. Anyone who merely Googled Trugala with the word scam next to it would have found ample evidence that the company was operating a scam.
