Scam Description

@ShopSendyShades on Instagram held a giveaway for a pair of sunglasses. They DM’ed me that I won and I could use the code “winner” on their website. I paid shipping, $15, through PayPal. I never received the glasses and when I was looking at reviews on the Shop app, most “customers” never received their glasses. I looked further into their IG “highlights” that shares other IG user’s posts that include their glasses. All of these profiles of kids look fake and made up. I left a comment, inquiring about not receiving glasses and the account deleted my comment and never responded. I got scammed.
