Scammer's address CA, USA
Victim Location NC 28037, USA
Total money lost $60
Type of a scam Online Purchase

ON Facebook Marketplace there is a system used for payments from sellers called Metapay. I have ordered 3 items totaling the amount mentioned that 2 of them, I never received, and one got delivered to someone's house that I don't recognize by the photo. Not in my neighborhood. Facebook tells you to contact Metapay but it seems more like lip service with no real resolve. I can't contact the seller because I no longer see their merchandise or their name listed. I am contacting Fedex about the misdelivered package but the other two I will file a dispute with my bank for items never received. I would not advise anyone to order from FB marketplace "For You" suggested items to buy. These sellers are not held responsible and pocket the money. FB should be held responsible for this.

I listed 2 couches on facebook marketplace for $400. It was listed as a local pick up only in the denver, CO area. Shortly after listing, I had multiple individuals reach out with interest. One person “Wang FeiFei” appeared most interested. I kept getting notifications from others interested, but Wang FeiFei offered to come by and get this item today. It was hard to focus because so many notifications were coming in while i was trying to communicate with wang feifei about the couches. He asked for my email so he could pay through zelle. I sent him my email & shortly after received an email notification that I had been paid $400 through zelle. almost instantly after I got an email that I had to upgrade my account to get the funds. It stated that we would both have to send a refundable $300 to a zelle representative to upgrade. Wang FeiFei messaged me and said that this is normal for people who don’t use zelle & said he sent his $300 and we would both get this money back. This happened 2x more, after completing this payment… now the upgrade fee was $500. Once I finally accepted the fact that I had been scammed, I told him I knew what he did. He pretended not to have any idea what i was talking about. I sent him an article I found online that detailed this same tactic of scamming… he instantly left the facebook marketplace chat. Interestingly enough, I also stopped receiving inquiries/notifications about this item I had listed at this time as well. I do believe that the influx of rapid notifications from other interested users are part of the scam, a distraction tactic/a pressure to get the item sold. I lost a total of $1,300 dollars in this scam.

The email accounts involved in the scam are as follows:

Wang feifei’s email: [email protected]

“zelle” notifications: [email protected]

payment sent to upgrade account:

[email protected]

payment sent to upgrade account:

[email protected]

After I realized I had been scammed I called my bank - chase bank informed me that they would do nothing to help with this since technically I authorized the payments. I called zelle, they also do nothing to help. I informed them that people are creating fake zelle notification emails and impersonating zelle and coercing their users into sending money directly to criminals, though their tactics make it look like this money is sent to zelle to verify the account. They did not care or offer any assistance.

This person is still out there scamming others because there is no one from zelle or from chase bank that is willing to protect honest, hardworking individuals like myself who trust their money with these companies. Chase bank and zelle are both promoting and protecting scammers by doing nothing to deter these scammers from stealing from other individuals when people report scam to them.
