I responded to an advertisement that appeared in my Facebook thread for fresh Alaskan King Crabs shipped right to your door at phenomentally low prices.
The link went to the website [Removed] Only option for payment was Paypal. It appears I got scammed out of $45. The phone numbers on the order confirmation are not working. There is no response to the email I sent to the company. It appears they are in China. Has anybody else been bitten by this scam??
Solved! Go to Solution.
It sounds like a recent purchase hasn't gone quite as you had planned and you're looking into opening a dispute. In this situation, opening a dispute to have PayPal review the matter is definitely the right call. There are few different types of disputes, so please make sure you're opening the right one for your specific situation. If you received an item but it wasn't what you expected, you'll want to open a Significantly Not As Described (SNAD) case. If you did not receive your item at all, you'll want to open an Item Not Received (INR) case.
You can find more information on the Dispute Process by clicking "Contact" at the bottom of any PayPal page, then "Disputes and account limitations", then "Disputes", then "Dispute a payment". If you run into any speed-bumps along the way, scroll to the bottom of that page and select "Call Us" (when available) or "Message us".
I hope that helps. Cheers to you all and good luck with your case,

I was suspicious from the start, but my greed and glutton for that delicious crab made me continue. I was suspicious of the Paypal transaction so I instead entered in my credit card information directly, in case of scam it would make it easier to dispute. I opted for the 3 day shipping, charged like $77 to my card. 5 days later still no crab. Phone number goes to voicemailbox that is full. Paypal requires my password or last 4 digits of ss to dispute, but I didn't charge through paypal... so I'm not giving them my info. I disputed with my credit card co and they are processing. I know it will come out in my favor and they will be chargeback'ed, but it is a hassle.
I too thought maybe I could for once enjoy a special treat... Dang idiots got my money and I got nothing. I going to contact my bank and see what I can do.
