Yes in same boat got offered partial refund and after numerous attempts to claim and trying to escalate with PayPal all I got was sorry page not available .I honestly thought PayPal would assist but no so refuse to purchase anything else online using PayPal as I do not lose anymore money.
Guys, lets all do this. Everytime you see a dodgy advert on FB, do a search for the same item to proof it is a scam. They usually rip off some legitimate website. Then click on the top right corner of the FB ad and inform FB that this is a fraud. If enough of us are doing this all the time, it will cause these scammers trouble to be blacklisted by FB algorithm.
I messaged PayPal back and told them to escalate my claim, due to a seller committing criminal fraud and using PayPal to help them pull off their crime. I got my refund within minutes. I then told them to go after this guy for fraud and heard nothing back.
If PayPal instruct you to return them do so as they are then obligated to refund the postage and you will ne unable to escalate your claim for not receiving the product you were allegedly buying until then. Mind you I have still to get my refund but I have referred the matter to Police Internet Fraud and Financial ombudsman for action.
Check the packaging that the watches arrived in and add the return address to your post.
