NOTE: The FoxDose website appears to be live once again...
It's not completely certain what happened, we've requested further information from the owners but haven't received a response yet. Considering this vendor's customer reviews, among some other things, we are not confident in recommending them as a vendor at this stage.
We will update this post as soon as our opinion changes, but for the moment it would be a lot safer to go with one of our other preferred vendors. Have a different opinion? Let us know via our Contact page or through the Forum, we'd love to know if you have something to share about your experience with FoxDose.
WARNING: Beware of fake FoxDose websites. Since the closure of FoxDose there may be fraudulent websites set up that try and copy the original branding and logo. These new sites will in no way be connected to the original FoxDose website. DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THEM, YOU WILL LIKELY GET SCAMMED.
The closure of FoxDose (url: foxdose.com) caught many customers by surprise, especially those that had recently placed an order with them and still hadn't received their products.
The sad truth is that these customers will likely never receive their orders, which is terribly disappointing to say the least.
That being said, it's also not a complete surprise about the ongoing scamming and eventual closure of FoxDose.
If you were scammed by FoxDose, we really feel for you because it isn't a pleasant experience nor is it fair, but stick around until the end because you might learn something that could help you avoid this same situation happening to you again in the future.
Let's dig into all of this now.
FoxDose have shut down. Whether or not you are shocked with this development, the outcome is still the same - it really sucks for the existing customers, as well as the industry.
If you try and load their website it'll now just take you to an empty page - it looks as though they've deleted everything... Hopefully they've also deleted all of their customers' information too while they were at it. Fingers crossed.
What's worse is that it appears that FoxDose have actually rugged their customers. Rugged (rug pulled is actually the more accurate term) is crypto jargon where a new crypto token is created and hyped up, only for the developers to pull as much value out of the project as possible in a very short period of time i.e. they take everything and just disappear...
From the online reviews and feedback that we've received, it appears that the operators over at FoxDose have done the same thing - they continued taking orders and offering promotions over the last few months, but had no intention of shipping out the orders. At this current point in time, we can only suspect that they've taken their customers money and disappeared into the night, never to return again.
How is this any different to other vendors?
If we're honest, FoxDose never had a great reputation in the industry, their service was all over the place at the best of times. I'm sure that they started out with great intentions, but from our understanding, this industry can be a tough space to navigate.
However, the way that FoxDose went about shutting down didn't deviate from their overall reputation within the industry - it was pretty poor.
If you look back at some of the legacy industry greats that have since closed their doors like DuckDose, ModafinilCat, Eufinil, ModUP, Afinil Express, these vendors went about it a completely different way. Sure their closure was a surprise, but they notified their community by leaving a message on their website and they usually circulating an email around to all their customers and affiliates.
They would also stop taking new orders, but they continued responding to existing customer emails to finalise any outstanding orders that had not been delivered yet. In the rare event that some of these parcels did not arrive, they honoured their delivery/refund guarantee, making sure that their customers were left whole.
They stuck to their values right until the end - customers were always placed first.
Sadly, we cannot say the same for FoxDose...
How to prevent yourself from getting scammed again?
Getting scammed really sucks! It doesn't suck only sometimes, it sucks all the time. You've wasted money, time and you've also got nothing to show for it. No money and no product. So the question remains, how do you avoid this from happening again?
Prior to placing your order with any online vendor, you have to do your research first.
Even if you have ordered from a vendor in the past, the next time you place an order with them you also have to do some quick research to make sure that nothing has changed since the last time that you ordered from them. This industry, and the vendors, are continuously changing, so it's always safer to check rather than regretting it later on.
One of the easiest ways to do quick research on a vendor is to try and find some honest customer reviews. By doing a google search on FoxDose you would have seen one of the top suggested links taking you to TrustPilot where there have been a number of reviews left by customers.
Their average rating was 1.8 stars out of 5 from 104 total reviews, which is telling you something already.
If you had looked a little further into the actual customer reviews, you'll notice that it isn't painting a very good picture of how FoxDose were managing their customers and business.
Here are the main issues that we could see just from skimming the first dozen of the most recent reviews:
No communication from customer support
Payment sent but order(s) never received
Not honouring their reshipment/refund guarantee in the even of lost packages
No confirmation emails
No tracking numbers
This list could go on and on, but you get the drift.
From the looks of it, customers rarely had anything nice to say about FoxDose. The negative reviews had started to pour in for months now.
So there you have it, another vendor closing their doors, which leaves their previous customers looking for who they can order from next.
With such a terrible track record, it probably isn't a bad thing that FoxDose have decided to pack up and leave, however, it's just a shame that customers were scammed in the process.
There are always new vendors popping up on the scene, which can make it difficult to know who can be trusted. We don't want to be ordering from another FoxDose. This is why we continue to monitor this landscape and write reviews about the vendors that operate in this industry.
We've hopefully taken some of the hard work out of making the right decision on finding the best online vendor for you. That being said, it is important that you also do your own research, similar to what we outlined above by looking at recent customer reviews etc.
For all readers that are located within Europe, we recommend that you have a look at our review on Modawhale. They'll be able to ship to your domestically, ensuring that your parcel arrives quickly and safely.
Luckily there are a number of solid vendors out there that will treat you and your order very differently to what you might have already experienced with FoxDose.
Thanks for reading this far! I hope that you liked our quick little summary. I'd invite you to join our forum to share your thoughts and experiences with FoxDose in the past, or any current vendors that you're ordering through.
