Re: Netflix Scam... Another Scam
A word of warning to all who purchase from internet sites. Someone on the Facebook Market place was selling a remote controller for a drone.I offered to buy it for the price of £40 plus £4 postage and promptly paid by Paypal. No controller was sent.We communicated by Facebook messenger and he has stopped the conversataion,so I have no means of contact. In all the years of buying over the internet , Ebay,Amazon,Gumtree this is the very first time I've been scammed.I have bought from Facebook Marketplace before but locally and buying with cash. I will never use Paypal again. I'm not covered for any refund as I authorised the transaction. I've heard of these types of scams a thousand times but never thought it would happen to me as I'm so carefull but it's happened. I'm certainly not bothered about losing the money and will put it down to experience.I know folk who have lost hundreds of pounds when someone has hacked there bank accounts,so losing a small amount is nothing. But it wont happen again. I wont be buying from strangers on the internet again,so let my experience be a warning to others. I'm not the first and wont be the last, there seems to more thieves on-line than ever. One thing though ,I did think I would be covered, my money went from my PP account to another PP account and I thought the money for non payment could be reversed, but sadly not. PayPal wernt bothered.
