Scam Description

I googled Walmart, looking for a lawnmower and then I ordered it using my debit card. Immediately after ordering, I was redirected to a website in CHINA. I cancelled my order within 12 hours, as they stated a 12 to 24 hour cancellation time was necessary. They told me they already sent my refund out. what I received was a child’s t-shirt. They said to keep it, and they would go ahead and send the lawnmower out. I was then given a tracking number, and redirected to EMS Mail Service. At the end of sending, it states they tried to deliver it but couldn’t, and so it was returned. Then they said they were resending it, and another tracking number was to follow. Both times the EMS tracking sheet was exactly the same, except the dates were changed. I have still not received my lawnmower, and at this time I am waiting on a refund. i can’t imagine I will receive it.
