Yahoo "VERIZON is knowingly allowing the CHINESE to scam Americans with these scam websites. These fake websites advertising on Yahoo "VERIZON" are promoting Dewalt tools at a very large discount. I thought I was very internet savvy but I fell for the scam. Fortunately I used a credit card and  my purchase was   refunded by my CC company minus five dollars.  Yahoo "VERIZON" is well aware of what is going on but continually allows these scammers to advertise on the front page of Yahoo "VERIZON."  Money to Yahoo "Verizon" is more important then the well being of Americans. Needless to say after complaining to Yahoo "VERIZON" and no action I have told Verizon where they can stick their cell service

They got me too. The ad was on yahoo home page. Yahoo said they cannot control what ads are posted on their website. I’m currently severing all ties with yahoo which is a pain because I’ve had mail with them for 15 years. Pay pal is next if they can’t tighten up-

Yahoo is running this EXACT same scan on their news site again! There are other China scammers on there, too.

I too fell for this scam from a "Dewalt tool refurbisher" seller, I thought I would try to get a miter saw but the Asian seller wouldn't send me an invoice copy or tracking information. When I finally received tracking information, the seller showed that the tool was delivered 2 days ago, I received a postcard for a sale not a 50 pound miter saw. I will only buy from Amazon from now on, at least they are a reputable company, they have verified sellers and have great customer service.

Always check the seller’s feedback.

 

Even if they show positive feedback, click on it and check it. Sometimes it’s only feedback as a buyer and not a seller. Sometimes there is no feedback less than a year old, which might mean the scammers have hacked into a dormant account.


Feedback is what makes eBay work. But you have to check it.
