Katie Price’s Instagram flooded with upset fans as she’s accused of promoting ‘scam’ brands
KATIE Price's Instagram page has been flooded with upset fans – accusing the star of promoting "scam" brands.
The 42-year-old ex-glamour model regularly uses her social media platform to offer followers special discounts for online brands.
This includes hair and skincare products, clothing, and even her own recently-launched bath bomb range.
Taking to her page yesterday, Katie shared a series of photos of herself posing with the bath items, urging fans to treat themselves to the products.
But disgruntled followers instead took the opportunity to air their disappointment with other brands she'd promoted.
One commented: "I'd never 'swipe up'… Lost over £70 thanks to your endorsement on SweetPlaidUK… Disgusted!!!!"
Another replied: "Yes, me too, they are copying the website of real sellers. They are in China."
One more asked: "Hi @KatiePrice I ordered the 3 for 2 offer @VozeOfficial.Shop via your swipe up link. @VozeOfficial.Shop can't be contacted and wondered if you could enquire about their current situations and orders/ money they have had please."
Someone simply commented back: "It's a scam."
Another comment on the post read: "If I order how will I know if I'd receive my order?"
One disappointed fan wrote: "I’m really upset that the voze ear pods you were promoting and had linked on your story last Sunday, and that I purchased in good faith through the swipe up option for a Xmas present was a scam as took my money still no ear pods a week later and Xmas days away and the website says store unavailable."
A rep for Katie told The Sun that the star was unaware that any of the companies she'd promoted were "scams" – and that she'd impose "tighter restrictions" going forward.
They said: "Katie would never knowingly scam anyone – nor be involved with anything underhanded – her supporters mean everything to her.
"Tighter restrictions are now being implemented to protect both Katie and her followers from these drop companies springing up everywhere.
"I have spoken with trading standards who are working now with the government to stamp out these pop up companies, to protect everyone, Katie wholly backs this and would sign up to any campaign to falsify her followers, fans, friends and family."
Earlier this month, Katie came under fire when she promoted real-fur products on her Instagram page as she posed in a £270 fox fur cardigan.
