N95, KN95, Respirator Mask Potential Scams

The following is a list of websites I believe to be complete scams. Personally, I have ordered from a few of them early on, and had to dispute the charges with my bank, unless otherwise noted.

I will update this page regularly.

Disclaimer: I am not telling you not to purchase from these websites. I am just giving you my personal opinion, with some facts, and in some cases, my own experience with the “companies”. Use your own discretion.

Look at the masks on the above websites. They are all nearly identical. Most hide their shipping and handling terms and you won’t learn about them until after-the-fact. I do believe these masks exist, but, none of the sellers actually have them in their possession, and they are all collecting money from consumers for nothing. Perhaps some have good intentions – I don’t know, but you should not charge until you ship, assuming you had plans on fulfilling orders.

* I ordered from “industrypieces.com” very early-on. Now that I know what I know, I’m glad they never shipped. Either way, it was supposed to arrive within a week. Two weeks passed, I emailed them, they told me it’ll ship the following week. The following week turned into “might ship this week”, so I requested a refund, they went dark. I disputed the charge with my bank and notified the seller.


I ordered from “o2canada.com”. The website looked promising, different from all of the others using Shopify as their third-party shopping cart. At the time, the delivery date in the header was a week away from when I ordered. But, once I ordered and received the email confirmation, suddenly shipping was within 4-6 weeks. Why not just post that on your website, instead of a bogus date? I emailed them, they were nice enough about it, and issued me a full refund. I *think* they have good intentions and I say that reluctantly, but they likely did not manufacture the product yet.


Both useless pieces of junk. Use a scarf.
