When making online purchase, pls beware of scammer from P.R. China.
Paid for a pressure cooker but received a worthless metal ring. Seller refused to refund.

Beware of :
No news from Paypal yet..I have been trying to email the PRC sellers to refund but no reply from them.
Did you manage to resolve your case? How are you going to proceed from here?
Yes, as if it was my fault. I dont believe that they will refund me once i return the worthless ring to them.
Try broadcasting as far as possible about their plot to others. I wrote to local Chinese Embassy even it's of no use - just try my luck.
Embassy directed me to their local police 110 - stupid!. Online P.R. China Police email addresses are all outdated.
I'm still cursing them via email daily. I'm not expecting to get my money back. I will continue to spread about these scammers.
My last action was emailing to a Ministry of theirs, hoping for some kind of action. I will keep trying. We must protect other online buyers.
I am not completely clueless when it comes to technology... but I still fell for it just 'cause expecting PayPal Purchase Protection to back me up.

As expected, the latitude and longitude location is in the middle of nothing. It's actually in water around Kansas.
Some of the websites under that IP are:
Maybe someone with more knowledge about IT and Cybersecurity can help take them down. I've filed a complaint with IC3, but I'd love to see more ways to take them down, especially since it looks like it's a wide fraudulent operation.
