Have you or someone you love recently fallen victim to a scam website? Fraudulent sites take a number of forms: ecommerce, dating, forex brokerages, and more. Whatever face they wear, they all exist to take your money and give you nothing in return. We’ve prepared some tips on how to get a refund from a scam website.
Ask for a Refund
Your first step is to send a strongly-worded email to the website, laying out the details of your history with them. Explain how much money you gave them, that you received nothing in return, and that you would like a refund. On rare occasion, they will give your money back, but if not, this is still an important step to take before moving on.
Take to Social Media
If you have time on your hands, you can wage a social media war against the company. Contact them on all of their social media platforms, @ them on Twitter, and leave comments and reviews on as many platforms as you can. They may give you a refund just to get you to stop, and so they can claim that they “Resolved” the issue and are not actually scammers. In the process, you’ll also be raising awareness of their behavior and you’ll hopefully convince others not to trust them.
Contest the Charges
If the scammers will not give your money back, see if you can contest the charges via your payment provider. Banks, credit cards, and PayPal all offer various protections against fraudulent charges. However, if you paid via crypto the solution to the scam may be more complicated.
