Looks like a ripoff/scam to me. I will report it to Wyze. In the mean time, I would go to My Account (above) and change your username to something other than your email address. (Wyze is in the process of correcting this so email addresses don’t become usernames in the future and existing ones will be removed.)

this was not sent to my email. It was sent in a text from the number I posted and yes I will change the email to a username. Thanks

Beware! Received a text from 985-606-9678 with Wyze Cam Pan For $19.99 Sale with this link attached to the text message https://bit.ly/M0Qk8B
When I inspected the link it is from https://www.meramax.us and it looks like they cloned the WYZE site to scam people. This looks like a scam to me.

This has been reported to Wyze and their legal team is investigating.


#6

I also received a message and bought 10 cameras from here.
It seems they are a site find cheap deals.


#7

If legit, they are definitely losing money because Wyze is not selling them to anyone for that kind of price. Or more likely, I suspect, the above post is part of the scam.

You must be a part of this scam! There is no legit company out there that clones a site unless they are scamming people. Once the site was reported to Wyze now and out of a sudden the site changed and is about cheap deals when just few days ago the site was trying to pass itself as a Wyze site. You showing a picture for 10 Wyze cam does not confirm you purchased them nor confirm the site is legit. Take your scam somewhere else.

BEWARE of MERAMAX.US THIS IS A SCAM BEING PROMOTED THROUGH TEXT AND FORUM! DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING FROM SUCH A TEMP SITE ENDS WITH .US THAT CLONED WYZE SITE FOR WEEKS BEFORE I REPORTED THEM TO WYZE. THEY HAVE CHANGED THE WAY THE SITE LOOKS AFTER I REPORTED THEM! THIS COMPANY DOES NOT EXIST. NOT TO MENTION THE MANY TYPO ON THE SITE AND TEXT “ $ SIGN AFTER THE NUMBER IN YOUR TEXT SCAM REALLY!!!” NONE OF THE SUPPORT LINKS ON THE SITE FUNCTION. NOT TO MENTION “ABOUT US “

For kicks, I decided to check on the website again. Now they are selling a cold brew system (and nothing else) and their About Us only loops back to the product page. But what I found the most amusing…

Even though they aren’t talking about Wyze Cams anywhere, they forgot to take away the tab icon of a Wyze Cam from our site. :stuck_out_tongue:
