Scam Description

I made an online purchase from a company established in California and they supposedly sent me the product from Florida, they gave me the parcel tracking number (using ontrac international shipping: https://www.ontracinternationalshipping.com/ a company that was created in March 2022 and whose address (713 Fenway Ave # D Los Angeles California 90025) does not exist However, if it shows the tracking of the shipment and that the package is blocked, in reality, I belive, the same person is managing both sites. On ??the 5th day this company sent me an email written only in capital letters demanding that I pay $710 to deliver my product. I spoke to the seller repeatedly and he refuses to refund the money saying that the shipping company will not return the product to him, which is absurd. I´m sure that this company is fictitious and the seller makes the complete fraud, $900 in a single transaction, I hope they don’t go unpunished for me and for other vulnerable persons. As I made the payment via Zelle directly in the name of the seller, because it is the only payment option they have, now I cannot make a claim for fraud in my bank. I hope that you make a report so that this site is blocked. I am about to return to France, which is where I live, but the fraud was committed in California while I was on vacation.
