Type of a scam Online Purchase
I found this website when I was searching for a car seat for my grandson about a week ago, they had a slightly lower price ($30) than I could find anywhere else. I ordered the car seat and paid via pay pal. I never heard anything further so I emailed their customer services email, no reply. Emailed again, no reply. Emailed again threatening to report to pay pal – nothing. Checked the website and found the phone # – not in service. Then I noticed an anomaly on the site, the top of the page says the business is located in Oakland NJ the contact us page says exact same address, zip and all – but Oakland CA. I then realized I was scammed. Thankfully I paid via PayPal and have filed a dispute, which will take time to resolve. I reordered the car seat from Amazon. But this site is for sure fraudulent, it’s my first experience with this kind of thing. I’ll get my money back from PayPal hopefully, but they have other personal information from me now, I’m not sure if this is an attempt at identity theft or what? I’m not sure if I should be reporting it anywhere else? I’m reporting to you – and Pay Pal.
