swoggi

Hi All

I would like to advise the community about Swoggi.

Sadly I have been taken in by what seems to be a widely used dubious penny auction site called SWOGGI. This evening I looked at some reviews all claiminging furiously... SCAM.

I paid through Pay Pal and am disappointed that Pay Pal were doing business with this auction site.  Pay Pal should have been aware.

If Pay Pal cannot intervene somehow, I can see no possibility of getting ANY MONEY BACK.

I paid 2  x £58 = £116 to buy credits for the auction.

Can anyone advise please.

Many thanks

Alfie2

Hi there,

 

Welcome to the PayPal Community.

 

Have you reached out to PayPal Customer Service directly? Did you open a dispute on your PayPal account?

David, 

 

I too have had the same experience. Swoggi have taken £116.00. i haven't used the credits provided by thi company and have raised a dispute as advised. I've also requested that the money is refunded by PayPal  Buyer Protection. So far, I have had an automated reply from PayPal and an offer of a further pointless 50 credits from  Swoggi, tha I have declined.    I'm more than surprised that PayPal conduct business with this company. Yes, I've been stupid and have parted with my hard earned money. Surely PayPal have a duty of care to investigate companies that they conduct business with and should take steps to protect their customers.  I await a reply from PayPal Customer Services and intend to report this company to trading standards via citizen's advice.  

 

A bitterly disappointed!
