Can the authorities get it pulled down?
This is a serious criminal enterprise going on that results in draining your account as well as receiving nothing.

I don't appreciate the victim blaming. How is everyone expected to know they're normally worth the equivalent of a decent new car?

Makes you're leery of FB MP that they continue to advertise there with impunity.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

Why is the Costco letterhead at the top?
Apart from the unrealistic prices, how do you tell it's a serious scam by criminals?

I’m leery of any of those platforms, they track people and enable targeted scams based upon their specific interests. The authorities have very limited tools to deal with them.

My solution is to avoid it altogether.

Morining MF, the Cosco letterhead is there so they can fool people into thinking it is really Cosco.
They are crims.... speedy

G'day speedy ,Mf and Ironbark

When thinking about buying from a site for the first time ,it's worth copying and pasting the web address into these
links first ,this will tell you the risks involved.
