I received an e-mail that said my friend was in trouble and could I respond. I did as I really thought it was from my friends Con and Angela McGuiness in Manchester UK. Then I received this long e-mail asking for money as they were stuck in Turkey. At this point I realized it was a scam and have mailed a copy of the e-mails to my friends in UK. I did not use the e-mail address the scammers had used to get in touch with me.

This guy calls to sell me drugs. Prescription pain killers or diabetic supplies. Last week when I told him for the umpteenth time that I was not diabetic, he said" Would you feel better if I said I love you?". I politely told him to F off. He called Friday and again this afternoon. I am on the do not call list but this does not deter him.

I paid for a wig and was treat horribly...wig didnt come until i got the bank involved

  • Monetary Loss: $150
I ordered a wig from Bria on December 15, 2016. I paid in full, she told me that I would receive it before the end of the following week ant that it would take 2 days to ship. She also told me that she would send a pic of it when it was done. When the following week came and went and I did not hear from Bria I reached out to her for updates (Dec. 29.) She told me that I would receive my wig the next day Friday the 30th and that she would send my tracking number by the end of the day. I never received a tracking number and Friday I had no package. At this point, i began to explain to the person who referred me to the horrible customer service. She reached out to Bria on my behalf and Bria told her that shipped it Friday and it would come Monday Jan.02,2017 and that she would send her my tracking number by the end of the day. I didn't receive a tracking number and my wig did not come when she said it would. So I reached out to her once more and told her I wanted a refund. She ignored my dm... so I posted a comment under one of her pics. After she deleted my comment twice I posted this under several of her pics: "Ok, at this point I have received nothing but horrible customer service... 3 different arrival dates... 2 promises that I would receive a tracking number... 1 promise that I would receive a pic of the unit when done... 0 updates. I would dm you about the matter but you have been ignoring me and at this point, all I would like is a full refund... I never received a unit I ordered Dec. 15 and at this point, i just want my money back. @shopbriachristine" she blocked me. One of her potential customers reached out to me and to get my side of the story. She even screenshots me a photo that Bria posted after she blocked me (the wig I ordered.. she was reselling it on her page. I got in contact with the app that she used to collect payment (Square Cash App) which really does not have any protection against fraud... soI contacted my bank to report her. After the bank reached out to call her using the number she has on file with the Square Cash App (which wasn't a good number I suppose) they decided to open an investigation. Low and behold this past weekend Jan. 07 a package is in my mail... I opened it to find a funky wig with a whole in the net and a horrible smell. The wig looked like it had been cut and styled and worn for months. I called my bank and they advised me to return the wig. When I emailed Bria she seemed to be the pillar of customer service explaining that she sent the wrong wig and that she would send the correct one to me.
