Scam Description

I ordered a chair from this company after I was assured (through a social media message) that the item would be shipping from China. As soon as I realized that the item was shipping from China (tracking number provided one day later), I contacted the company to cancel the transaction, but they told me it was too late to stop shipment. One month later, I received the shipment – and it was a wristwatch. So, I received something completely different than what I ordered! The company offered to refund me but only after I ship the watch back to China.
