Important message from Zip Top USA about Knockoffs
Numerous websites have popped up purporting to sell Zip Top containers, sometimes at a significant discount. Sadly, we've learnt from other creators that this is a common occurrence following successful crowd funding campaigns. Many of these sites only exist to steal credit card information. Others are selling cheap and unsafe knockoffs of our product.
These counterfeit sites and products are particularly deceptive because they have stolen Zip Top copyrighted videos, images, and content as well as are claiming to make and sell Zip Top patent-pending product designs. These sites advertise aggressively on Facebook and Instagram and promote significant discounts and immediate shipments.
Zip Top attorneys are vigorously pursuing each violation of our intellectual property, but since it is relatively easy to quickly create a new website, it's likely that new ones will continue to appear.
In New Zealand purchase from this official online store - www.ziptop.co.nz - or from our official stockists.
Rest assured that the only way to purchase authentic Zip Top containers in New Zealand is from this official online store and in-store (or online) from our official NZ stockists. Any other online sites or stores claiming to sell Zip Top containers are potentially selling counterfeit knockoffs.
What to do if you have been a victim?
If you have been scammed, we encourage you to dispute the charges with your credit card company or PayPal. We have received reports from others who were victims of these sites that they have had success getting their money back by disputing the charge.
Your help is vital to shutting these scam sites down
Zip Top's intellectual property team has successfully shut down many of these sites! The efforts to shut them down are helped in large measure by you, our loyal customers, who reported their deceptive ads to us, to Facebook and to other platforms.
If you see scam sites or questionable knockoffs being sold, let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate. Zip Top will fight to protect its intellectual property and loyal supporters from being scammed by such unethical and often illegal activity.
