Type of a scam Online Purchase

Saw an ad on Facebook for a watch. Debated. Tried to do my research. Things seemed ok. Ordered the watch. 2 days later, they sent a confirmation email, but the products looked different. I emailed the "customer service" and asked but have not gotten a response. Also the confirmation email said it had a tracking number. I tried to track it and it says no info at this time.try again later. I want my money back.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I saw an ad on Facebook for a discounted smartwatch through a company called Meet. The website was very well put together and I made the mistake of rushing through it while still half asleep.

I purchased the Michael Kors v3 smartwatch in Rose Gold for $49.99, a "discount" from the original price of over $180.00. When I looked at the bank statement a few moments later, the processing payment said "Lin Jinrong" and not "Meet". After some research, I discovered that the name *** *** is associated with other scams and fraud, cases of people either not receiving their product or receiving faulty or incorrect items. I’ve talked with my bank and will be disputing the charge. I sent an email to their support team via *** and requested that the order be cancelled right away and not fulfilled or shipped out. I have yet to receive a response.

Signs that the website is fake:

1. No physical address

2. Suspicious wording in terms of service (returns are only accepted if the item is worth more than $70.00USD)

3. Typos on the contact page and elsewhere on the site

4. Terms of service uses verbiage like "we are not responsible for incorrect information provided on the website."

5. For a company that claims to be based in the US, there is no domestic shipping option provided, only International

6. Even after selecting the option to use my credit card instead of Paypal, the payment was still processed via Paypal and appears as a Paypal payment to *** *** on my statement
