Facebook Scam: **bleep**ou (sz) Tech co.,limited and Paypal protection?

Hi,

 

Re: **bleep**ou (sz) Tech co.,limited

 

In May 20 I bought a product from a facebook advert, thinking it was being sent from the US. A child's bike seat bracket for an adult mountain bike costing me $26.99. At the end of June I received an unknown package from China, which turned out to be a cheap bike seat cushion cover.  It was addressed to me but no idea why.  I then did some searching on google and realised it was a scam, many people had done the same thing with different products.  The return address shows: Y&G F2P, Unit 5 Trident Way, Southall, UB2 5LF, which is apparently not even a return address.

 

As I purposely paid using Paypal (for protection) I raised a a dispute with the seller, who gave me two options, to return the product for refund (warning me in advance that it would cost more than I paid for the item) or to accept a part refund of around 20%.  This is totally unacceptable so I escalated the dispute with paypal giving all the info and pictures.  Paypal contacted me today to say that the seller has agreed to issue a full refund but first I have to send back to China within 9 days.  This will cost more than I originally paid!!!!!! I am trying to contact paypal to say why this is unacceptable but there doesn't seem to be anyway, trying to talk to someone in person isn't possible and I have been given 2 options, to post the item back and send Paypal the tracking No. or close the case!  

 

At the moment I think even Paypal is even a complete waste of time, it gives no protection whatsoever and just allows people to be scammed!  Has anyway had  similar issues and if so is there any way to get out of this?

 

Best Regards

Hi  I have the same issue.  I opened a dispute with Paypal who closed it and found in favour of the seller as they argued they don't offer protection for reasons where the item is different too advised.  I am trying to complain to Paypal as they should take some responsibility.

Mine was not Facebook but I had the same problem with PayPal they found in favour of the seller not once but twice and I had all the rip off conversations which I produced and still lost my money so there is definitely no buyer protection so beware what you are buying and where from.

On my previous comment I forgot to mention an advertisement on Facebook for a realistic dog you can bend it into all sorts of positions realistic glass eyes and so on looks like the real thing it also shows videos of this miracle dog costs £25 plus p/p when you get it, it looks nothing like the 1 shown plastic eyes and nose with scrap material does not bend falls over guess what you have just been scammed I messaged the company and said I was sending it back for a refund they said it would cost me sending it to China but they would give me 5% then 10% I finally got 40%out of them which was only £9.80 and kept the piece of material my wife thought she was getting almost the real thing how disappointed she was I did not go to PayPal as I knew it was a waste of time after my 2 losses previously.

Totally agree - shocking that PAYPAL appear to be validating this company. Posted 02/11/2020 - I am disgusted that I have had to pay the cost of shipping to China, for an item that I did not order or want As can be clearly seen from the original packaging, the company knew exactly what they were sending. In addition, the item was only sent from the UK The return address on the package shows: Y&G F2P, Unit 5 Trident Way, Southall, UB2 5LF I have since found numerous complaints about this company. This is a complete ‘rip off’ and worrying that your company appears to be supporting and validating their actions.
