Just passing along this information to you , my friends:

Urban Threads

NOTICE: We have not been hacked, but we are experiencing a problem with a third-party vendor that is causing our visitors to be redirected to random sites that are not affiliated with Urban Threads. We ask you to refrain from visiting the website until we can solve the problem.

I don't know that going there will cause problems, but it's always better not to take a chance with our expensive software and computers.

UPDATE from Urban Threads.
UPDATE: The Urban Threads website is up and running for major internet service providers (ISP) like Comcast, Verizon, CenturyLink, etc. However, if you live in a rural area or have a small ISP, we recommend that you wait up to 48 hours (Wednesday, July 3rd) to visit the website because those ISPs are slower to update their internet records.

Please be assured, Urban Threads was NOT hacked and there are no security issues with our data and website. This was simply an issue with our external domain name service. No internal aspects of our website were ever at risk. We apologize for any inconvenience.

As always, we are deeply appreciative of your understanding and support. We have the best customers in the world and are so grateful for all of you. Thank you!

We have extended the sale on the new Cosmos Collection through noon Central time on Friday, July 12th and the Boho Beauty Sale through noon Central time on Monday, July 8th.
