Placed an order on activehat.shopify.com and never received an update beyond an order confirmation. I emailed the seller a week later and have not heard from them. It has been two days. Upon checking the status of my order, I'm faced with a "this shop is unavailable" error page.
The interesting thing about this is that the name of the charge is "Arizona Advocacy Network." Turn outs it's a democratic political organization. I do not think they had anything to do with this and the scammer was just using their name as a facade.
If it's at all relevant, the seller's contact is "firstname.lastname@example.org" and again the website was activehat.shopify.com
Currently, I am working on getting the charge reversed. But I learned several things in this ordeal for which I think others should consider.
For all, please shop carefully. This first time experience with Shopify was not a good one and I do not think I will be doing business with any shopify hosted stores moving forward.
