Scam Description

I ordered shoes with this women via instragram then she gave me a number to text. She was responding so fast then I text her regarding the shoes and she answered the questions and I proceeded to pay her $225 for Y*****. I heard nothing else after that 5 days past by I text her and dm’ed and got no response but she’s posting on social media. I sent another message and she read it that Sunday but don’t respond. I’m fed up at this point so I told my boyfriend to text the number as if he wants to buy shoes and see if she responds and she does immediately. So I text her again later on after that and still no response and today makes day 8 with no contact. It’s really sad people do things like this to other people. I’m warning you all to stay away from this young lady she’s clearly bad news.
