Scam Description

I ordered a discreet product on the website then was prompted to pay by Zelle which I stupidly did. Palt Logistics Cargo Service then contacted me saying they need $350 more to get a certificate to get clearance through customs which was weird because product was coming from CA not out of the country. I did not give the $350 and asked my bank to recover the original $228 for products which will never arrive. Zelle has a disclaimer not to pay anyone you don’t know, so it may be difficult to recover the funds although my bank is trying.
