What Is 1stessence.com – Is ‘1st Essence’ Scam or Legit E-Store? – Review

By | April 13, 2019

What is 1stessence.com – Our ‘1stessence’ Review.

We have encountered a scam report about 1stessence.com from the bbb.org scam tracker. Is 1stessence com fraudulent, scam, fake or Is ‘1st Essence’ safe, real, legit and trustworthy? This review on ‘1sessence’ seeks to find out if they are legitimate or deceptive. The complaint goes that their was no response on this companies phone numbers. This customer had received no tracking info for their order.

Have you purchased from their site? You are welcome to leave our own review in the comments below this article. Many times we find that fake e-stores are coming out of China. We will try to find out where they are located, founder name and contact info. Where this is false or missing then that is a good sign to use caution.




Is www.1stessence.com a scam?



What Is 1stessence.com about.

Registration for 1stessence.com was in 2018/12/06. That expires in 2019/12/06 where they have the option to renew their own domain. Founder name is not listed and there is PO BOX address from PANAMA. That is the 4th time today we have seen these PO Box’s being used for a business.

Of course, that is not good enough for a supposed business. We go to their site and we see an address of 2150 Virginia Street, New York, NY 60154, and per returns in Google, that address is in use by other companies. That is not legit. Usually, that is only a sign of a scam network. If the same person owns those sites then it would be helpful to make this known on every site. Otherwise, this is where the online world becomes confused about such sites.

Clearly, one address per business!

Though WHOIS does not display the founders name, ‘Linda Miller’ is the name given in their ‘ABOUT US’ section. We found their page on Facebook and nowhere do we see ‘Linda Miller’ in that page. We see that page is branded just like 1stessence.com. However, they are posting only information about animals.

We go to their ‘About’ on their page and they are clearly talking about online shopping. This does not make any sense. Who sets up an e-store, then makes a FB page just to post about endangered animals? 

They are McAffee approved and their cert shows that so that is a plus and a positive sign.


Final Thoughts.

They are new and so limited are the reports about them online. We are not sure if that is the real founder as that is the only place we found that name online connected to that site.

We are not recommending them for now. We will change this is many good reports come through. If negative reviews flood this forum then we will place them in our List of Internet Scammers.

That is it on What Is 1stessence.com and look forward to hearing about your experiences about that site.

      Whichever way you paid is the company you contact for a possible refund if ‘1Stessence’ has not delivered anything to you Grady. Thank you for your review also.

      I purchase the bag by credit card on 4/28/2020. I was given a Order Number and another number with about 18 digits (don’t know what it is for), I sent 3 e-mails to support@1stessence.com and each time receive message we will respond in 24 to 48 hours unless you submitted on a weekend, then it will take a little bit longer.

    I made a purchase from 1st essence, they took the money from my credit card on March 16 2020, I have been waiting for a response and have heard nothing, I have texted them with no reply, and tried calling but nothing, I think this is a scam company, but yet they are still adverising their merchandise, they need to be stopped

  3. Antonio Descalzo

    I have placed an order on May 18 2019 and had a confirmation on the same day but haven’t received any status update for the order until this very moment, 20 days after, and 2 emails follow-up without a single response.

        I placed an order on 1/27/2020 and I keep getting a complete runaround. They’ve even sent an email response that they will contact me about my order within 24 to 48 hrs countless times. What’s really going on? Order # 19634. Why can’t somebody tell us something? This has got to be a scam huh? It wasn’t for a lot but if you scam millions then yes it is! Angry!! Help?
