Increasingly sophisticated scammers put together fake websites to dupe people into believing they're purchasing online from legitimate businesses. And once you've been fooled, it's unlikely you'll ever see any trace of your purchase or your money again.
We wish we didn't have to write this post but copycats and fake websites are inevitable. We've received a few reports of scam emails being sent impersonating the Untitled UI team. They're usually pretty easy to spot so we've put together a short post on what to look for.
Ignore all emails that look suspicious
We will only ever email you from three email addresses:
Please check the email address closely if you receive a suspicious looking email. We will never email you from a gmail or similar free email service.
If you receive an email from any other email pretending to be Untitled UI or any of our team, please just mark it as spam and forward to email@example.com.
Only trust links from untitledui.com
Quite often these email addresses will send you to a duplicate website to trick you into purchasing from their payment links. Scammers may use a URL that is very similar to a known legitimate website but with small, easy-to-miss differences.
For example, you may get sent a link untitledui.gumnroad.com. While the site may look legitimate with secure payment options available, if you look at the URL carefully the scammer has added in one extra letter.
Please only trust links direct from untitledui.com.
Please mark these emails as spam and report
These scammers prey on innocent people and there is usually no way to recover fraudulent purchases. If you receive any emails impersonating another business, the best thing you can do is mark them as spam in your email client and let the business know about it. This will help prevent others from falling into the trap.
Mark emails from firstname.lastname@example.org as spam
We've received multiple complaints of spam emails from email@example.com impersonating Untitled UI and/or targeting Untitled UI customers via Figma Community. Please mark these emails as spam and ignore them, this will help prevent others from receiving spam emails. If you didn't sign up to their mailing list, you can also forward it to the Federal Trade Commission via firstname.lastname@example.org and report it via consumercomplaints.fcc.gov.
Beware of scammer Sahil Ali Salmani
Over the past two years, we've received multiple complaints of scam and spam emails sent by a person named Sahil Ali Salmani:
Sahil is a criminal who has been caught multiple times impersonating Untitled UI. He preys on innocent people by creating fake checkout stores and emails to dupe innocent people into believing they're purchasing online from legitimate businesses.
If you have received any suspicious emails or messages from Sahil, please report them to us so we can follow up.
