Is Wayfair Actually Trafficking Humans? Here’s The Rundown.

We already know that Wayfair has sold beds to ICE detention centers, which is cause for concern alone. Now, Wayfair has gotten some heat given theories that they could possibly be involved in human trafficking. Need to catch up on the latest with this conspiracy? Look no further.


Here’s the Rundown

The Wayfair conspiracy first surfaced on a subreddit, r/conspiracy. The original post asks, “is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it’s true.” The post also contains screenshots of WFX Utility cabinets priced at tens of thousands of dollars, accompanied by different names. Users also found wildly overpriced lights, pillows, and more. Strangely, they all have the same names as children who have gone missing.


Baby & Kids

Wayfair also raised some eyebrows for descriptions of their Baby & Kids section. On their site a description (which has since been removed) stated, “At Wayfair, we carry a wide selection of baby & kids so you can choose from many different options for your home.” This could potentially be a grammatical mistake or an oversight. Interesting, nonetheless.


Credit Card Details

An anonymous source also tells us that they had never purchased anything from Wayfair, but their card number was used on Wayfair’s website without any amount of money ever actually charged to the site. Later, there were multiple charges at a Miami boutique for little girls’ clothing. The cardholder also called Wayfair to dispute the charges, but the call never went through. Seems to be a strange coincidence, no?


Wayfair and Fact Checker Claims

However, Wayfair claims that these accusations are completely baseless and false. Susan Frechette, a Wayfair spokeswoman asserted that there is “no truth to these claims.” Fact checkers like Snopes and Reuters also easily dismiss any claims of foul play, citing that these items are accurately priced. Wayfair has since removed WFX Utility cabinets and other seemingly overpriced items in order to update their descriptions to explain these high prices.
