Facebook scammers

When purchases are made by off facebook ads I've either received items that weren't even close to what I was lead to believe and if I would try to take care of things myself I would get an offer pay me back but not the whole amount only half if it or I would have to pay shipping for a return and I've purchased a few items from facebook ads I have not once never received an item that made me happy. Not to mention the items never received is that because they never sent anything

Chinese Web Sites or on Social Media ads easy to spot (once you know the below signs) so buyer beware.

1. No return address on the returns policy. The site will look as if its in your country (where they despatch goods from) but they will ask for returns to go back to China (returns depot) at a shipping cost often more than the item is worth.
2. No contact telephone number. if you click on contact the most you will get is webmail or an email address.
3. Rarely company address information.
4. Great pictures of items at bargain prices that turn out to be tat.
5. Fake reviews.
6. Google and you can often see previous company names as they change them once enough claims roll in and Paypal stop them using their services and start over.
7. Send fake tracking numbers to win item non receipt of item claims.


Advice is voluntary.
