same here, folks- please go to Twitter, and find me and re-tweet my @paypal tweet from today- they are negligent if they do not take action on this. its a loop hole scam, and PayPal is endorsing it by closing these claims
I placed an order for an ultrasonic support rack on May 21st. Same scam story; no package, issued a dispute with PayPal, "merchant" came up with a UPS tracking number which PayPal used to decide in his favor and close my case.
The interesting thing about the UPS tracking number was that it was listed as being in the city it was supposed to be shipped to. But, UPS does not provide a street address, so for all I know the guy shipped an empty box to some random location in the city, and that's all he needed to win the dispute.
This scam appears to be very prevalent on internet sites. Once you know what to look for, you can spot them everywhere.The fake UPS delivery address is the key and Paypal has been slow to develop a fix to stop the scamming. More attention needs to be directed towards the problem to protect the consumer. Don't use Paypal until they do.
As my wife has reminded me (more than once) who considers herself a professional shopper, before placing an order, first check reviews and length of time a company has been in business. After the fact, my scam showed 2% approval rate and a 1 month in existence. Common sense would immediately signal NO.
I got my money back from my Citibank credit card but Paypal still has an open investigation going. They want to know why I unlinked my credit card from my Paypal account. Duh! Paypal appears to be totally computer generated and I don't think there is any live people involved. Paypal is suppose to protect my personal information but they've been hacked themselves. At least when I dispute a credit card charge, I can talk to a live person even though he is home bound in Mumbi by Covid 19. But he was nice.
Yes same thing happened to me. Placed order in May, was sent a tracking number says it was delivered on June 4th. Got home no package, called post office and they said a 1.3 lb package was delivered but not to my address. This was to be a wooden swing set I believe it would weigh more than 1lb 3 oz.
I hate Frauds and for Paypal to be supporting them. I am about DONE WITH PAYPAL ALSO!!!
Gu jiāmíng is also a major scammer. He did the same thing to me. I bought a youth kayak from him and I got a notice that the package was delivered. however the info said the package was 2 pounds. No kayak is only 2 pounds. I called ups to see what happened and they said the tracking number belonged to a completely different person and address. I filed a claim and was denied because there was a tracking number that said the package was delivered.
