I've ordered 2 Hermes Birkin Bags. She received money USD $21500 for the Hermes Birkin bags, and she said, her bank blocked her account. So i asked her to ship the items or return my money back. Beause even the bank blocked her account, the money is in her account and the bank won't return the money back to me.
But she ignored me and keep said, 'I can not do anything before the bank released my account'. Then she blocked from her instagram followes and never response me anymore with whatapp message as well. These orders are for my clients.

Bought goods from this page, took my money and nothing turned up, weeks, months went by, i received excuse after excuse but still never got any refund, i gave them over 3 months, warned that if they did not sort it i was take it up with my bank etc, and because i reported their page they now refuse to pay me anything! disgusting! i cant see any sort of review/experience as there are strangely no comments or anything on any of their posts, they probably block and delete them!

This person is a scammer. I know first hand as he scammed me out of $65,000.00. I already reported his facebook profile and it was removed. I reported all his information to Money gram and reported a loss to Western Union. I also informed EFCC of this scammer and his profile on Instagram is full of other scammers.

This is just a forewarning. This morning "Jayla Hazee" user id Jayla2019_2020 contacted me claiming she worked for PLS. Her exact message was: "Ok Basically I work at PLS Checkings. We pay for Deposits/transactions/grants and make interest as well as commission off each transaction. We will split the money into 3 transactions. First one covers the transaction fee/deposti fee. No money out of your pocket is needed. Second transaction is for you to keep. Third is for us to split. But for safety so you know that i'm not tryin to take any money the account can be in zerostanding so theres no way you can get scammed, you can it can even be in the negative so you know all i'm doing is adding. You can make up to $8,000. But I have to trust that you will send me my cut. The transaction takes 24 hours or overnight. How does this offer sound? Again the account can be EMPTY or even NEGATIVE. All I need is the mobile/online banking username and password to load the funds. Nothing more. But the question is can I trust that you will send us our cut?" I have a friend who works for PLS that re-insured me that this was a scam. They deposit fake checks then withdraw them before the bank realizes they didn't clear leaving the account holder owing thousands. You've been warned.
