Scam Description

World Gadget Home claims to sell a wide variety of products including PS5’s. I ordered 4 PS5’s and received a UPS delivery confirmation that says they were delivered. This is a fake UPS delivery confirmation and I never received the products. I tried to call the company, at first, and their phone number rings double busy. The email gets returned as undeliverable. I contacted UPS and after an investigation confirmed that the UPS confirmation was to a different persona and address. I tried to file a claim but the seller blocked my claim and UPS told me that the seller set it up so I would have to deal directly with them and can not file a claim with UPS. This company is very good at pretending to be legit, and even UPS does not know how they are getting away with their fake deliveries. I have also contacted my bank and Paypal to start an investigation to get my money back, but companies like this need to be stopped. Please let me know what I can do to help the investigation and shut their website down.
