Think of how many people you know who own a Pandora bracelet. Now think about how many people you know, who could be scammed hundreds of dollars when trying to purchase the accessories.

Pop-up ads on social media are sending people to fake websites, including PandoraPick.com. It looks like a legitimate website to unsuspecting customers. But Angie Barnett, President of the Maryland branch of the Better Business Bureau said scammers are lurking with duds instead of diamonds.

"They paid for the item, the item was never delivered, or they received the item after paying a price for it and the item is defective, and by defective it is of very poor quality," Barnett said. "Consumers are reporting it turns green, it's crumbling, it's falling apart. That is not the Pandora product that we're accustomed to."

The fake website has no contact information. Barnett said it's imperative that you check if a website is secure before typing in any of your personal information, like a credit card number.

If you're concerned about a website, you can research it on the Better Business Bureau's scam tracker online.
