Shipito SCAM using fake PayPal that looks real

I have been selling my photography equipment off online due to the fact that I was made homeless and have to get money.  This is where the predators seem to work the best.  I am autistic and have a hard time usually grasping the situations around me.  But I need to warn everyone about this place in hopes that they get shut down.

 

I'm not sure what this place really is, but on January 12, 2019, I was scammed into shipping something I was selling for $2,100 on FaceBook MarketPlace to this address:

It seemed as though my first time using an online thing such as PayPal, rather than dealing with local people for cash was going to work out.  I was dead wrong.  If it was not for me catching a few small things wrong with the "PayPal" email (which turned out to be FAKE), I would not have been able to call PayPal and confirm I was had in time to be able to use USPS's Intercept in order to have my package returned to me.  It is all over the review boards of people losing things due to this scam.  I have contacted the FBI and USPS's Investigation office.  Whatever this company is, it is not legitimate in that it deals in moving stolen goods across the world.

 

There are a couple of posts on these forums about Shipito, but none really go into the depth of what this company is doing to people who are selling products online.

Hi @Merale,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

I am sorry to see you lost your item in this case. PayPal offers advice on such suspicious activity here.
