  1. I ordered off of a facebook ad that looked legit from keen utility saying 70% off. it took me to I ordered with my chase debit card and got an email conformation. but after writing the actual keen website they told me that they don’t do 70% off. I tried cancelling and contacting customer support at the scam site but with no response. I’ve contacted my bank and they said that they wouldn’t do anything. is their another way to explain it to my bank to get the charge reversed? btw this order was only 2 days ago!

    • Unfortunately this is still going on – today I ordered merchandise on an Under Armour Outlet Factory Store which was advertised on Facebook. Looking back some Red Flags did appear, but I ignored them. There were no comments on the ad, ( because it was just listed), so I’m out $64. As I read further, Contact and Support – was all bogus, along with misspelled words. I got a receipt for my payment, but no confirmation via email. I did contact my credit card, but the amount of $64 was already posted as pending by Q’Natural in California. I have to wait to dispute it. My account is now blocked am awaiting new card with new account number. There were two other Fake Companies on Facebook( Ariat Boots and Keen Footwear) with the same type pictures and disclaimers – I believe the same person or persons is responsible. Filing a case with the FTC. I’ll see what happens. I am assuming there are a lot of Bogus Companies on Facebook.

  2. Naijatastic adds on facebook trying to sell Razer Wolverine pro controllers for 1/3 of the price brand new using the companies own mimicked website. It looks very real so be careful!

    Scam and half kinda scam

    • Sure a scam. They have a normal looking website and then a few scam links. I doubt you get the normal products either.

  3. I paid for a product from Funnysoul, I didn’t receive my order and when i quired it, I was told it didn’t get sent and I had to pay for postage and admin costs if I wanted a 50% refund of what i originally paid.

  4. Thank you-I was scammed twice now on facebook playing a game and the ads appeared and thought these were approved by facebook boy was I wrong. Thank you.

  5. when you pay via PayPal guest, this is also a common way and adds an air of legitimacy but is NOT covered by PayPal if using guest pay for a scam merchandiser.

    • Most scammers avoid Paypal since once they get too many complaints they will freeze the account. It makes them also more traceable. But right, Paypal is certainly not foolproof and does not give 100% safety. But a store that is NOT having Paypal does raise a warning flag. Take care that some scam stores have the Paypal logo, but do not offer Paypal.

  6. Can anything be done if you are a victim of scam or they just out my money? What are my rights buying goods from overseas?

    • Not much. You can (no, you SHOULD) file a dispute with your credit card holding bank. Often that works and people do get their money back.

    • Just wanted to add if something is priced so well and especially has a countdown timer till it ends, and it just seems to good to be true, 99.99% of the time it is. We all want quality items for cheap, but the words quality and cheap dont go in the same conversation unless the word “‘isn’t” is between them.
