Scam Description

I placed an order for a Pressback Barstool for $101 AND free shipping. The order was created but the company keeps saying my Mastercard was declined and I needed to input another card, which I did–using my VISA card. The company stated my cards were declined due to “security reasons” which is ridiculous as they are not “virtual, prepaid or with low trust scores”–this was the reason given.
I decided to check online to see if anyone had posted info about the company and two people related the same experience and stated that their cards had fraudulent charges on them a few weeks after they were declined by the company and they never ended up completing their orders.
