Recently I can see almost every day a new scam campaign by a Facebook/Instagram scam gang. They take some images from the web, often from Kickstarter, Indiegogo etc. – and they sell it at ridiculous low prices. Of course buyers will never get anything. Please let me know in case you see sites I should add here:

You can see that all websites have the same style and largely the same products. This is one criminal gang that comes out with a few new websites every week.

Here are the expensive real gadgets products that the scammers often use: Snapmaker, Kniterate, Goliath CNC, Human Hoist, EBS Handjet, Stator Scooter, Migo 3D, DTV Schredder, Sobro Smart Table and many more.
Update on company name on credit card:
The scammers usually use their trade name, i.e. next2day or whatever they use, the fraud transaction itself is handled buy a Chinese credit card processor called iPayLinks. They fake Paypal colors, but have zero security and provide safe transaction for scammers. It is also used for ***.MyShopify.com transactions.
Have you been scammed? Here is what you can do:
- Contact your bank
- Dispute the fraudulent transaction
- Have images of what you ordered
- Have images of what you got, with your address and track number on it
- It may help to talk to the disputes department Many here have been successful getting their money back.
