On 3/8, I made a purchase from https://unbanous.myshopify.com/. The website promptly closed and doesn’t answer emails. Now, there’s a site called https://usnavaki.myshopify.com/ that’s selling the exact same item, and only that item. I was cheated, and it looks like it’ll happen again.

Yeah, the other URL is also inactive. Try getting your money back through the card provider - that's usually a straightforward process. Just call your bank and they will be able to claim the money back on your behalf

The process is even easier with PayPal than with your bank

This seems like a platform for "vendors" but really a platform for "theives" ...people to set up fake businesses to rip you off. Shopify© knows what's up....I'm not saying there isn't some legit businesses in there...but why would you roll the dice? ask yourself that ... it's a way for crooks to steal your money. Notice how Shopify © they tell you to "work it out with your bank".Because the bank can either deem you were ripped and give you your money or say it was your bad mistake and not, but the theif can to keep your money. I lost $127.. I have two dogs and four cats.I purchased $127 worth of supposedly high quality flea collars.The animals aren't feeling well,the colors never came and the shop doesn't exist.. and we're in spring,my dog is suffering. I don't have another $127 for flea treatments to blow. what everybody needs to know not to trust Shopify... it's a way to give money probably a bunch of people in another country?..use your online mobile app for your bank and be checking your bank account in case anything else fishy is going on so you're not getting money taken out.the fake receipt they send you as just a false confirmation I don't care if you got a receipt or not.USE SHOPIFY AT YOUR OWN RISK!¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!!!

I will make sure not to purchase anything from a shopify merchant. My first ripoff here and my first purchase. Better luck with ebay and craigslist!

Right,but beware of scammers on CL as well😈...on pets🐰 or Goods 🎾..if
they give u a story/sob story... act like they are really wanting to know
if ur legit & that :
they will take🥇 Western Union,
🥈PayPal..or they need
🥉Google verification
from✔️ you first..
Do Not Do It!!!! SCAM SCAM SCAM.
They know how to act..also out state numbers texting u from CL are another
give away..while some could still have an out of state number ...err on the
cautious side don't give any of the pay pal , Western Union or Google
verification at all.
Also if u sell something on CL say 70$ & it's local & they come to ur
portch then thay say "well, all I have 4 -20s.. so can I have it for 60$?"
(hold ur ground, folks know what's up.) Say...
I can wait for u to go get change at a store or u can give me the 80$... &
magically here comes the extra 10$ to make ur 70$ u already agreed on in
the first place .it's a pressure tactic sometimes.... ...& I'm very
skeptical of the CL ads that show you that you need to go to a website to
order their furniture...I will not do that. Also check reviews on all the
sites you choose to buy from, their is serious pet scams out there too,
they know what pets people are looking for and that their is few available
so, if ur impatient or desperate u fall for the "send me the money & I will
load the pet on a plane & u can pick it up at the air port" they text u all
these pics of the pet. . & it's a scam. Buy local where u meet in a public
place & check reviews on sellers on eBay as well.
Happy Hunting!
