More Facebook Scams – Avoid the Ads! (Updated daily)

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:

  1. 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.
    Thank you.

    • 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.

      • 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.

  2. We bust these scams at Facebook Ad Scambusters!
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/stopfraudads/

    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.

    https://www.shopify.com/legal/report-aup-violation

    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….
