Beware of Facebook store scams

Facebook Store Fraud - Item Not As Described

Most shoppers see an item that’s priced 90% less than public advertised sale price would automatically think this is a scam.

“Bait & Switch” Facebook Shopify Stores look totally legitimate. Dynamically setup to fool the Facebook community by offering flash limited time sales – free shipping and secure PayPal checkout.

Best way to identify “to good to be true” scams is to Check Trustpilot. Search company or domain name… When in doubt contact PayPal before making purchase.  

PayPal buyer protection terms and conditions.
“The Buyer must reply to any questions asked by PayPal in regards to the PayPal Buyer Protection Claim within 10 days. PayPal will decline the Claim if the Buyer does not provide an answer within this timeframe. PayPal may extend this timeframe in case of extraordinary circumstances which are outside the control of the Buyer”

No question 99.9% of these Hong Kong China Facebook Stores are a scam.
You will not receive anything. If you do it will be nothing like what’s advertised!
