Here’s your GoFundMe scam of the day out of Haverhill.
This is what we’re dealing with here.
This twastsicle has nicer things than I do, no kids, and still wants me to pay her for her own alleged stupidity. Hard pass fam.
And what in tarnation does this dog have to do with anything?
I guess when you don’t crotch fruits to elicit sympathy for your GoFundMe scam, you have to use your dog.
So let me get this straight. She bought Patriots tickets on eBay, spoke with an eBay representative through their online support, who told her that she was buying from a trusted seller, was promised a refund by eBay if not, and she took pics of this conversation to prove it. Then it turned out to be a scam and she has no recourse whatsoever and is panhandling on GoFundMe instead.
Of course if you really purchased something on eBay they’re such a large company that they can afford to offer money back guarantees. If what she is alleging is true, that she got scammed by some eBay pirate, this is an easy fix.
Yet in the same breath she’s saying that she has since spoken on the phone with someone from eBay (for 2 hours nonetheless), and they said there was nothing they could do about it. Except their policy says the exact opposite.
It’s almost as if none of this is true.
But even if it was true, how is this Haverhill 411’s problem? Why would you expect strangers to recoup the money you lost because you’re a vapid poon brain?
Nevertheless she did raise $300 before conveniently shutting down the GoFundMe as soon as the questions started getting tough:
Wait…..what? You didn’t use your credit or debit card to purchase on eBay? These are the only options for purchasing stuff on eBay:
PayPal and credit cards. Both of which are extremely easy to cancel purchases for. If PayPal knows that the person you sent money to never provided the service that you paid for then they can take actions to get your money back and shut down the other person’s account. PayPal also requires accounts to be attached to real bank accounts, with real names, so you’d be able to find out who your money went to pretty easily.
But wait, it gets better. According to her, eBay told her that a “separate screen popped up and pretended to be eBay for the transaction.”
Whatever that means.
Where are the pictures by the way? Seems like that would be a pretty important thing to show, so that people can see exactly how you got conned by a guy who created a website that looked just like eBay, and somehow managed to get it to pop up on your computer, offering the exact thing you wanted to purchase.
This was the only accurate thing she said in the GFM:
“I want to remind people that there are scammers EVERYWHERE this time of year.”
Yes, there are. And they look like this.
