Scam Description

I went to purchase ammo online and selected one of the first websites listed on Google, and placed an order due to nothing seeming out of the ordinary. I sent the money through Zelle and never received any confirmation emails and when I reached out to the chat system associated with the website, I was informed that there was need of a $500 shipping insurance fee that was not disclosed anywhere prior to or listed on the website anywhere. The phone number listed is fake, the chat system won’t answer messages either.
