Scam Description

Buyer beware!!!!!!. I purchased a set of wheels on facebook Elfcyclewarehouse. Nothing looked out of place also they have two websites. I looked for reviews and did not find any online. The seller was asking me if i used zelle or cashapp which i do not. I told them I use paypal and they advised there was an issue with their business account which red flags should of went off. They said they could only do the paypal friends and family. I thought it was a legit business so i sent them a $1,000. Once they received it they stopped texting. Once they finally texted back they started making excuses why they have not gotten me the shipping label. I still have not received a label and they will not respond. This has been a horrible buyer experience. I finally found a bad review on them via their facebook account and they warned of the same issue. Don’t make the same mistake.
