In July 2020, some social media users accused the furniture store Wayfair of trafficking children. This gravely serious accusation was not based on police reports, firsthand accounts, financial records, or deep investigative reporting. Rather, it was based on the fact that some items on Wayfair were listed at exorbitant prices compared to other, similar items.

www.snopes.com/fact-check/wayfair-trafficking-children/

The claim that Wayfair is trafficking children is based almost entirely on one person’s confusion over an expensive cabinet. This conspiracy theory, like so many conspiracy theories, started with a wild and unfounded assumption that would be sickening if it were actually true. As of this writing, absolutely no credible evidence has been offered to back up this accusation.

It was not one cabinet. There were multiple over priced items. Some cabinets and some other items such as over priced pillows. In some cases the same items were elsewhere on the site at normal prices. The items have been taken down since the allegations have spread, but can be viewed through Google cache. Uncannily, many of the items in question bear the names of missing children. In some cases the names and spellings of the children were unique, but still made their way to wayfair.

Wayfair have taken down these items, but have claimed they are industrial items and are price marked correctly. They have failed to explain why there were other items such as pillows that were overly priced and why some items were being sold at normal prices elsewhere on the site. And why they have been taken down.

I've bought from Wayfair many times, only because the items were different and well priced.

I didn't want the common IKEA stuff, so I opted for certain items from Wayfair.

I found the same items purchased to be 4 times higher on other sites.

Never heard of this company before. But looking at twitter. Kind of odd how all these over-priced cabinets are named after missing girls.

If these were commonly used names of girls then one could simply brush it off.

But quite a coincidence that cabinets named after very rare names like. Yaritza and Neria and Alyvia priced for 13000 dollars plus. Also quite a conincidence those are names of missing girls.

That's definitely a typo.

It is an interesting topic. I'm not sure what to think. One might object to items sold by IKEA, also named after the designers. Coincidence? perhaps. Trafficking? Perhaps.

On a lighter note
The most famous one is MALM ;) Mufti Abu Laith Maliki ;) of course this brand isn't named after him :)

It's all coincidences and conjecture. But when the coincidences start stacking up then at some point we need to start taking notice and it needs investigating.

Considering he was dismissed from teaching position years ago. because they allegedly found Child Pornography on his computer.

Well Wayfair have sofa pillows worth. $10, 000. Some as high as $45000

Original price $50 at most.

Wayfair claims it was a technical glitch that led to overpricing. Someone somewhere looked at tge names of these products and they share names with missing children.

Social media is not buying Wayfairs explanation. If the products were named Jack, John or Jill then you might have an excuse. But unusual names like Yantex and Duplessis and Eliasa etc.

Yes, it could be a typo. Except that there are many over priced items like that and wayfair themselves have not said they are typos. Their explanation is that the price is correct but (in some cases) due to being heavy duty industrial items they are very expensive. This explanation only covers some of the items (if that), but does not explain other items such as the night light and also does not explain why they have started taking these items down.

Don't just take one coincidence. Look at all the coincidences and join the dots.

Niraj Shah is the CEO of wayfair. Friends with Epsteins madame, Ghislane, and is connected to some adult and child group in America that has been implicated in child abuse or something.
