I notice the same thing when I went in search of additional reloading components last month. All the usual online suspects (e.g., Brownells, Midway, etc.) were out of stock, but other websites I had never heard of had the powder I was looking for - and for a reasonable price. As others have mentioned, the payment requirements (via Zelle) was the big red flag. The scammers were diligent though. They followed up the next day via email looking to help me complete my purchase. Scum bags.

Caveat emptor.

Paypal has a time restriction on how long you can file a charge back. It was 30 days from what I recall. I ordered an item from EBay was shipped from China. It never arrived. By the time I went through the EBay channels it was past my Paypal window to get my money back. Scammers know how to work the system and will string you along better than a Nigerian businessman looking to cash a Cashiers check. For the fun I went down that road until I offered to bring the money to him in person. Seems like I had business in Nigeria collecting for a partial refund of slave my great, great, great, great grandfather bought. I had the receipt or so I claimed. Truth the ancestor in question was a officer in the Union army but no need to go into too much detail. Once I offered to come in person, the scammer lost my email information and went away. It was fun while I strung him along.

My credit card is linked to my pay pal account. I know my refund was more than 30 days out. Not much, but, I was hoping to get what I ordered for too good a deal. It was not through EBay, for whatever that is worth. When I placed the order, pay pal told me they would provide shipping information, which, of course, never came. Near instantaneous refund.

The credit card company caught the last scam, generated from a purchase at Numrich, who were hacked, and sent a note not to pay for four charges that appeared on the bill. Told me to cut up the card, and had a new one, in my hand, in perhaps 3-4 days.

I had a bit of fun with the Asians who called land lines, spoofing the phone number of the FBI, and asking me to pay my fine with a gift card from Target. I’d call him back on an 800 number he provided and recite the first 25 numerals for Pi, and thank him for not sending Officer Joe to arrest me. Then he would call back, and I would change the last number, apologizing profusely for getting it wrong. He tried for about a week. It was all I could do to keep a straight face on the phone.

Best,
Ted
