Scam Description

I had purchased some shoes my kid wanted for basketball that seemed to be sold out except for this site which ideally seemed fairly legitimate but I used paypal just in case. I ordered the shoes at the end of November and its said it would ship in 10-14 days. After three weeks and nor shipping information I reached out to the company the person seemed like they were helping and then after continious converstaions for about a month of asking for tracking information I finally sent them an email saying your have “x” amount of time to respond or I am filing a complaint with the better business bureau and paypal. I immediately got a response after not hearing anything for 2 weeks saying I was being refunded and that the shoes were delivered too me. Yet still not shoes and nor tracking information I think they guy was just trying to shut me up so I filed a complaint with pay pal but am also filing kne here cause I am pretty sure its a scam at this point otherwise why not just provide the tracking information. Please let me know what you find I have screenshots and will also be more than happy to share the email thread. Thank you.
