Scams

@bobstore (cannaherb in France) international telegram scam (arnaque)

The gullible idiot that I am tried to purchase weed through telegram. They pretend to be local to your area (in my case a city in France) and require you to send a bitcoin payment before delivery and block you immidiately when payment is received. They even sent me photos of the weed on a dated paper with the location and the name of the “store”. I couldn’t find anything saying that it is a scam online and it seemed fairly legit at first glance, now I’m down 50€. I feel like an idiot (as i should) but hope my sharing can prevent more people from getting scammed.

  1. I don’t really think there is a point to warning people about purchasing illegal goods over known to be used by criminals chat apps and paying in bitcoins …

    ​

    Also, unless you live way south of Nantes/Paris it’s literally a 5 to 7 hour drive or train ride to The Netherlands where we literally sell in shops :’)

  2. thank you, I have just found the telegram account and almost there to start the process but first wanted to give a try to find something on internet. Thanks for posting!

  3. If you’re going to buy weed online, fine.

    Find a local seller and only deal with cash.

    But like other commenters said, prolly better to just to hop on a train 😅 With the way some dealers are lacing it with fentanyl, it’s not worth the risk 🤷🏼‍♀️

  4. Lot of scammers on Telegram. It’s the perfect setup for a scam. You could go through a trusted escrow service. But again you are dealing with a delivery to possibly your home? Ehh…isnt there a local source where you could just buy it even underground?

  5. Telegram group “berlin weed for gourmets” it’s also scam. Don’t be stupid and don’t send money before you meet dealer.

  6. Yeah so I read this thread a hot second to late lol. I feel ya on the “seemed legit as far as telegram goes”. Have you had any longterm issues tho? It really freaks me out that the bitcoin process involves so much personal & ID data, do they have a way to see that / abuse it or does it stay with the bitcoin website?

  7. Fuck:(..I was also scammed, there must be some way to take them up when they are constantly cheating on people and making way too much money.
