Fake Gymshark Accounts and Websites

Updated 6 days ago

THE WANNABES ARE BACK... DON'T GET GOT!

As Gymshark grows as a global brand, more and more fake websites and fake product enter the market, but don't worry, we got your back!

Counterfeiters have become incredibly skilled at making some pretty convincing fake Gymshark advertisements, which, when clicked on, will direct you to a website claiming to sell bona fide Gymshark clothing, however, it's likely they're fake!

HOW TO SPOT A FAKE

Check for the Blue Verified tick;

  • If you see an ad on social media from "Gymshark" but there's no blue tick - that's not us.

  • If you see an ad on social media that sells "Gymshark" items, but the listed URL preview isn't gymshark.com - that's not us.

  • If someone reaches out to you offering a "sponsorship deal" but there's no blue tick - that's not us.

  • Avoid: anything with errors - if an ad has odd formatting, strange or poor-quality images, or spelling/grammar mistakes, don't click on it.

Check the URL;

  • If you see a Google ad for a "Gymshark Sale" or a site that sells "Gymshark" items, but the URL isn't gymshark.com - that's not us.

  • Avoid: website URL's that have weird names such as gymshark-norge.com or gymsharkuswebsite.com  - that's not us.

FAKE SOCIAL ACCOUNTS

Unfortunately, we regularly see a number of fake Gymshark accounts claiming to be "PR co-ordinators" or members of the "Gymshark Sponsorship" team, offering individuals a placement in their sponsorship programme - That's also not us.

We would NEVER;

  • Ask for any of your personal details, such as address or bank account details

  • Offer any "samples" or "product testing sessions" or "photoshoots"

  • Ask you to send over any pictures, of any kind!
