Lately it was a bit quiet and I thought (wrongly) that Facebook finally had some scam controls in place.
My error. The last few days I saw plenty of scam ads. It’s my believe that they are all from the same person/group/gang. They ads show various products, but all look similar. All are supported by Shopify, all use bit.ly URL shorteners.
This scam ads where found in the last 7 days, Shopify did a good job in deleting most, for easier reading I separated active scams from dead scam sites:
iyutyhg.myshopify.com <<< Added Feb 16th!
nosickilpt.myshopify.com <<< Added March 31st
thiredity.myshopify.com <<< Added March 11th
You can report to Shopify – just click HERE!
Already terminated by Shopify: (All 250+ URL are from Feb 8th 2020 or younger, links are removed for faster page loading)

As you can see from the many now dead links Shopify does do a reasonably good job in killing those fraudulent shopping sites.
Just a small selection:

Found some hot ones. Caliway.shop’s ad on youtube got me fired up, so i’m on a reporting spree of every single fucking website they own.
Some other ones found due to reverse image search:
People do some garbage stuff for money.
bkjsdf.myshopify.com SCAMED and RIPPED me of almost 400 dollars….
Disgusting human beings taking peoples hard earned money….they deserve what life has in stall for them.
Littleciterzensbotique is the name of the company my credit card transaction was taken by on my statement so BEWARE of them also
Electric cars for 69 dollars each never got them scam on Facebook
File a dispute with your credit card bank or with Paypal. You have good chances.
Robbed me for 129.00
On an e bike named scorpion
Bastards got me for $125 for 250cc motorcycle. How is Facebook NOT responsible for these scam ads? I didn’t know it was a scam until I googled it today, because they wouldn’t respond to emails, and when i went to the website it says, “this website does not exist!” 🤬🤬🤬🤬
Sad to hear that. How did you pay? Try to dispute the payment.
No luck there
You need to login to paypal
go the that payment
at the bottom you can file a dispute
You need to be persistent and may call paypal support.
este estava vendendo tricicl
Acquistato ieri con PayPal, oggi la pagina è inesistente.. provvedo subito a chiedere un rimborso paypal..
Good luck! Please let us know if you have success.
Hi, you see what fooled me is that they accept PayPal !!!
How is that possible and can I get my money back from PayPal ?
I presume they work with short term Paypal accounts and withdraw money every day. Most likely the bandits are somewhere in China, and Chinese police does not investigate since it affects only foreigners. It seems to be not a crime in China.
You should file a dispute ASAP with Paypal, you have a 180 days time frame to do so. Do that today.
Beside that, please let me know who was the receiver? You can see that when you logon to Paypal.com
they got me by 119.00 dollar for a scooter at zijzbv,thur paypal
i bought also e bike step how can i get my money back ?
i paid by credit card
You need to contact your bank that issued your credit card and make a fraud complaint. You may need to be a bit persistent. Please share, who received the funds? It’s should be mentioned on your card statement.
hitrubber still active, not dead nor down:
Well, they are down now. However, I understand what you mean, three.hitrubber.store is down, but tomorrow they are back with four.hitrubber.store then five.hitrubber.store and so on. Shopify does not block the complete domain unfortunately. There are many, many domains like that. I do believe this is one gang.
I purchase one metal lathe from pinterest ad. can I get my money back.
How you paid? Paypal? If so, who was the receiver?
Payment Receivers info was printed in a Chinese looking print. They got me. $129.00 Avoid zijzbv.myshopify.com. Purchase made with PayPal.
Can you let me know the receiver? Or if the Chinese does not copy well, can you make a screenshot? You can (if you can’t post it here) mail it to TheNoScam at gmail.com
I already purchased the product how do I get a refund?
How did you pay? Paypal or credit card?
muito bom o artigo obrigado
What if I already purchased an item, before knowing that it’s as a spam? Do I get refund from the person , or is it over now?
Can anyone help me with their tips to solve this problem.
The link you posted is already dead, so you can ask them. How did you pay, credit card or Paypal? If credit card, lodge a dispute with your bank for fraud, if Paypal, login to paypal,com, click the transaction and at the bottom click on Resolution Center.
My question exactly I ordered a electric car yesterday
It is a scam! How you pay, Paypal or credit card? Who was the receiver?
If it was Paypal…. :
1) go to Paypal.com
2) Click on the transaction
3) at the bottom of the page, click Resolution Center and file a complaint.
Do not wait! It’s a scam, you never get anything.
On the Paypal page, please check know who the receiver was.
I just asked the same question. I was told I was scammed I won’t be getting a refund.
How did you pay? Who said you can’t get a refund?
We bust these scams at Facebook Ad Scambusters!
We shouldn’t have to be bringing these obvious scam sites to Shopify’s attention. Facebook won’t pull the associated ads ripping people off, so we report the scammers’ Shopify sites using this Report link. Choose Report Malicious and Deceptive practices, then have the links ready and follow the instructions. Takes me five minutes.
Shopify does nuke them though and we report as a team and warn people on the Facebook ads!
It seems that reporting ads to Facebook has no effect at all. One option is not to show the ad to you – that is like like calling the police, reporting a crime and their reply is “please look away“. But sometimes Facebook has a serious look and the reply is “The ad concerned does not violate our TOS“. It’s highly frustrating and the scams go on, and on….
