Scam Description

Went on this website to purchase an optic for a pistol. Website seemed legit until Zelle was preferred method of payment. I’ve used Zelle to buy things online before, so I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. Reached out to customer service to find out about order status, phone number does not work and email address doesn’t reply. Went online to find information on whether the website was legit or not, some said yes it’s legit some said no. Filed a chase claim but since they use Zelle you cannot get the money back. This was the 2nd website in google when I searched the product I wanted.
