CYBERSECURITY experts have warned online shoppers not to search for a tempting outlet website that's actually a scam.

Specialists claim that hackers are trying to be associated with a popular brand to mislead victims into giving away cash.

The scam has been flagged by security searchers at Trend Micro.

Their blog states: "The HSN factory outlet scam is the latest shopping scam that we’ve been tracking this week.

"HSN factory outlet scam involves fake scam websites that pretend to be associated with HSN (the popular home shopping network).

"These websites use the HSN name and design, but have various suspicious domain names."

The suspicious domain names are hdemw[.]shop,, meteoraire[.]com, and anhbhau[.]shop.

Avoid searching for these websites or clicking on adverts for them.

You should also exercise caution when searching for the legitimate HSN online store.
