People that scam like this should get a government sanctioned ass whooping . Nothing too brutal ... but an ass whooping , videoed and put on the web . Maybe a few bitch slappings and a kick in the ass

JJ had to side with the seller on that one but not until after they got an earful
Ive heard this before.
Another thing to look out for is on Wish.
I have never bought from them but ive heard the shady stories.
Like the guy who found an e-bike on Wish for like $30.
The add described the bike in detail.
What he got was an electric bicycle horn.
Small print said this price was for the HORN. :)
Wish deals in mainly fakes of well known brands, I have bought some stuff but only small, cheap items. Another one is AliExpress, again mainly fakes but some stuff is genuine factory seconds, there are deals to be had but you have to have your wits about you.

Ive never used either of those but I do use Temu to buy $3 baseball hats. I go through them like crazy and I was sick of spending $20+.
They are decent quality...and our goats like them....hence why I go through them fast. :)
I know about the risk of dealing with these Chinese companies but I have nothing to take advantage of on my phone.
