Scam Description

I went looking for an outdoor storage shed. And the price looked to good to be true. So I went to contact the company. No email provided and the phone number and it had + symbol in front of the 11 digit number. Also I recognized it has 201 area code which is NJ not Utah. I called the number anyway and it doesn’t work. I googled the address and it’s someone’s home in Utah. I further searched online about the company and it provided info that is a company from Nigeria.
Looks like they are attempting to sell goods and services without actually providing anything.
Luckily before I did anything. I thought it looked weird, really weird, I figure I report it to the BBB. Don’t know if anyone has fallen for this scam yet.
