Total money lost $220
Type of a scam Online Purchase
On Instagram @thereal_shoe_deal advertises that he can get you shoes and to direct message him. He has pictures of multiple shoes on his page. I saw a pair I wanted and sent him a direct message asking the price, size and how he took payment. He gave me the price $180 and said he took payment through WU or Moneygram. I asked him for his information. He said the name was Tshon *** Detroit Michigan. I sent the money and then he said that his drivers license was expired and needed me to call in and change the name, and also he forgot to mention the shipping and handling cost ($20 regular and $40 overnight). I called WU had to cancel the transaction and put in another with the new name of Jason *** Detroit, Michigan. Within 30 minutes I got the auto message from WU saying the money was picked up. Then I tired to send him a message asking about the tracking number for the shoes. At that point he blocked me on instagram. I attempted to contact him through another account on Instagram and he blocked that one as well.
