Everyone has heard of scammers selling fake handbags and electronics. But parents and high school teens should be on the lookout for another scam: counterfeit prom dresses. Over 200,000 girls in the U.S. are likely to get ripped off this year by counterfeit and knockoff prom dress websites.

There's a reason that counterfeit prom dress websites sites offer styles in every color of the rainbow, while the designer's sites only show the dress available in just a few hues. According to Mac Duggal, "The fact is you'll never know which color you are going to get when you see so many colors. Counterfeiters use damaged, leftover material that they can get cheap to offer such low prices. These materials often fall apart, rip easily, or even give young girls hives and rashes."

If a prom dress buyer comes across a website that offers steeply discounted dresses in a wide range of colors, Dozens of Colors Means One Fake Prom Dress explains why it is likely to be so risky to click "Buy."
