Scams

Is this a scam?

There’s this online store I bought something at that only accepts cryptocurrency. I had sent my BTC, but then I found out the website was quite sketchy and new. I asked for a refund, and they gave it to me. The BTC is in my wallet.

I asked them about the sketchyness of their website, and they told me they are rebranding, that is why their websites are quite new.

I was pretty certain this is a scam but why would they refund me my BTC after I had sent it to them and everything had been confirmed. They could’ve just taken the money and blocked me right?

  1. > They could’ve just taken the money and blocked me right?

    Yes …

    What site?

    Any I really do not recommend shopping at sites that are only days/weeks old OR accept only BTC as payment.

  2. I don’t know but let me warn you that not every crook takes the money and blocks. Some of them identify relevant traits in their victims and allow themselves to play the long con.

  3. They now have your BTC info and the idea that you are fairly gullible. That could be worth something to other scammers.

  4. Why do you think they are scammers? Just curious. There are thousands of people setting up legit e-commerce businesses go to Reddit sub and you will see. Just want to know makes this a scam. Not saying they can’t be as.
