Investigation

We started our investigation by searching for the official website of Ray-Ban. We found that the official Ray-Ban website is https://india.ray-ban.com/. The website mentioned in the viral post isn’t the official website of the company. While the image did say that the scam website was Ray-Ban’s “official website,” this was false.

When we clicked on the fake website, the website landed on a different URL with a disclaimer that reads: WARNING: WEBSITE SHUT DOWN. The online store that formerly used this domain has been disabled, pursuant to a U.S. federal order court order, for the sale of products bearing counterfeit trademarks.

We also contacted Ray-Ban through email and they responded: We would like to inform you that https://india.ray-ban.com/ is an official website of Ray-ban and the product is 100% Genuine. The website given in the viral claim is a scam.

We scanned the profile of the user who shared the viral post. We found that the account of the Twitter user named Kimberly Deneris was created in September 2014.

Conclusion: When Vishvas News investigated we found the post to be fake. The graphics showing the purported 84th-anniversary sale for Ray-Ban is fake. The website given in the graphics isn’t the official website of Ray-Ban.
