Scam Description

I ordered a blouse from Wunu.com from a Facebook advertisement. It came in a white bag with no paperwork inside or any tags on the product. The blouse was not at all like the advertisement. Instead of being free flowing it was like spandex and very tight. I paid $51.99 including tax and shipping for this. The return label on the bag was “Joe Doe Jamaica NY” It was advertised as made in South Carolina but under the label with my address was a label with all Chinese writing on it. The label also said the product had a value of $23.00. Tonight this company is contacting me via text to ask if I was happy with the product and I stated absolutely not. They offered me $5.00 and to keep the blouse. I said no that I wanted a total reimbursement. They then offered me $15.00 and to keep the blouse and again I said no!
