I got scammed too! $90.95 I thought I was ordering from Wayfair.  Looks just like their ad. I ordered wicker chairs. They took my $90.95 on 9/27/21.  Never received my chairs but said "Paypal paid it on 9/27/21".  It makes me so mad.  The transaction on my bank statement saying paid by Paypal to Lediesel with phone number o[Removed. Phone #s not permitted]which when you call they are asking for the last 4 of your social or your bank account. Total scam and the email associated with my "order confirmation" is  (they wouldn't allow me to list) 😞 Please beware. I sure could use this $90.95 returned but I guess I have learned a very hard lesson and just a heads up to you all that it does not happen to you!  So scary they use Paypal and Wayfair. 😞

Same problem here. PayPal refunded me for 1 item at $99.00 but, a fake tracking number was issued for a 2 item I purchased. The tracking go says delivered but, no packages was delivered at all. I have this under review with usps to get the GPS location of where this was scanned at delivery. After looking online, it says the package weighted 3lbs but, it should weigh at least 90lbs probably more. PayPal business user since 2008 and they will not help on this.

It happened because the moment we authorize paypal. Paypal sends a confirmation with a seller that clearly is not wayfair. My transaction was pending. I caught it immediately and told paypal to cancel due to fraud seller. All day my transaction has been pending while I wait. Then 5 min ago at 9pm i get an email from paypal that the seller is not fraud and cleared my transaction despite my protest. Im very curious for paypal to prove that they verified the seller was wayfair. If not, lets start a class action lawsuit against paypal. This is fraud on their part too!

How did you get your $99 refund? I've had no luck with PayPal. I disputed the charge, but no refund. Same fake Wayfair add on Facebook.

Same situation here. Maybe we need to start a class action lawsuit. See my reply in comment above of my story. Unacceptable and clearly paypal is in on it. They did not verify wayfair was seller.

Yes, me too but I caught it in time and got my money returned.  I continue to see these adds.
