Dear Big Money Winner,
I too have been scammed EXACTLY how you and these other folks were. It was Christmas Day, I went onto YOUTUBE to look up a video, an ad popped up first. The Drone Pro. I have been wanting a drone for quite some time and got suckered into their add and even bought an additional drone based on their deal. Your every word matches mine. When I received my "receipt of purchase" from PayPal in this invoice included the same thing as yours. See below.
After reading these complaints from people on this forum, I bypassed PAYPAL and immediately called Synchrony Bank a[Removed. Phone #s not permitted] They took my call very seriously, and listened to my complaint and I let them know also, that there is this forum which denotes other complaints regarding ZestAds victims. The representative who I spoke with, says they have a great success rate of refunding victims after a 60 day thorough investigation towards the scammers. She will be sending me a form in the mail to fill out and send back. She also told me, if I am going to make a payment in full to PayPal, subtract what I paid to ZestAds and NOT PAY THAT. She also mentioned, that I will not be charged any interest on those items. Also, advised, was to not contact ZestAds anymore but to let SYNCHRONY BANK take it from here. She was very empathetic and re assured me that their investigative team was the best!
On my emailed invoice, in quotations below, is what they gave me. It was a lose weight video instead of a drone video.
