MILWAUKEE – The Better Business Bureau is warning shoppers about fake websites pretending to be Overstock.com.

The BBB has shut down more than 100 fraudulent websites that have illegally stolen the BBB logo.

“Well Overstock is a legitimate online retailer,” says Ran Hoth of the Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin, “but there are a lot of different words that may sound or look like Overstock, and so their legitimate site is being spoofed.”

Overstock.com officials say if there are any other letters or words before the “.com,” the site is likely a fraud.
