Scam Description

The scammers use multiple websites that are almost identical except with different addresses:
www.orleiboztrail.com – 4889 Willison Street Roseville MN US 55113 (no such address)
www.outdoororbeiboztrail.com – 4117 Diane Street Los Angeles CA US 90017 (no such address)
When you purchase on their site via PayPal, the payment is then listed as going to Ryan Ferguson Ryan.Ferguson34@centralia.edu
I called Centralia College in Washington State and they said that their email addressed do not include numbers after the name.
I reported the incident to PayPal and because I “authorized” the payment, they refuse to go after the scammers.
