Type of a scam Online Purchase
A Facebook ad was released for an "Ultra-light Urban Vehicle" which instructed consumers to purchase the product through the website www.wigwholesale.online, also called Wholesale-Hut. The product was listed as $40 for the vehicle only, for which the link is provided below at the end of this summary. Upon further research, it was discovered that the product they were "selling" is actually called Urmo, and is currently a Kickstarter campaign which has not yet been released. After looking through the product information on both sites (Kickstarter and Wholesale-Hut), it was found that Wholesale-Hut deliberately removed all mentions of the name of the actual product, and even used a ripped image file of the product features from the Kickstarter campaign (which had blurred out sections where the name Urmo was mentioned). It was also found that the product is estimated to be released for around 1,600EUR and not the advertised $40 on Wholesale-Hut. It is for these various reasons I believe the intentions for Wholesale-Hut is to "sell" a product that has not even been released yet and intends to not deliver the product even when it has been released.
