I was checking to see if there was any available Ps5’s here in Canada. So I used the site instockps5.com and the first two things that showed for availability was from this site MediaMarkt.ca while everything else was showing out of stock. The excitement of finally getting my hands on a ps5 got the better of me and I went to the website that really really looked legit and believe me as a 22 year old I make sure to stay away from scams. So I went to make the transaction but I never received a confirmation email of the order going through and it said status processing. So after freaking out getting yelled at by my mother and then her calmly asking me about it she asked me how I paid for the ps5 and I said debit. At first she lost it saying the scammers can get access to all of my bank info and then when I showed her the transaction page it said I paid with credit. So my mom was relieved and telling me that it most likely will not go through cause I used debit when they asked for my credit on this site but that she’s going to keep check and monitoring my banking info to see if the payment did go through to notify the bank. Lesson learned from this is to do your research on any website so you’re not going into a scam with your wallet already out. The irony is that my mother works for the tax department of the Canadian government so seeing how I fell for an online scam made her lose it on me. I try to be smart with money and what I buy in stores and online but the excitement of getting a ps5 almost got the better of me.
