3 Tips to Protect Yourself from Fake Online Stores

1. Research Organizations & Manufacturer Resources

Every industry has its leaders. Our manufacturers are platinum members of the Flag Manufacturers of America organization (FMAA), and so are we. Only the FMAA “Certified Made in the U.S.A.” seal assures consumers that their flag was made in the U.S.A.

2. Look for legitimate contact information

Just because a company lists an address on their site, it doesn't mean it's real. You can use Google Street View to verify the company's physical address. We also recommend that you Google the company's phone number to make sure the only results for the phone number belong to the company you are vetting.
