Please help me. I have been scammed out of 2,500 dollars. I wanted to start doing business as an NBA seller for amazon. I went to Alibaba to buy product to sell. They only sell in bulk so I ended up buying 1,000 units of a product. I paid the person and they gave me an email conformation with a tracking number. The product reaches customs and I paid for taxes. Then after that that’s where the problem started. The person who sold me the product, messages me and tells me there has been a problem. They accidentally sent me 10,000 units of the product instead of 1,000, and now I have to pay for the extra customs cost as well as the extra product. This person cant pay, because they don’t have money to pay for customs and they just lost a bunch of product. That is their excuse. I cant afford to pay 1,500 dollars for the taxes as well as the extra product. This was my only option, and if I don’t pay then customs will start charging me extra because they have to hold the product for me. This is what the person tells me. So my product is stuck in customs and I cant get it unless I pay them. So I end up using a credit card to pay for this product thinking that I will pay it all back once I start making money as an MBA seller. After I pay, two days later it reaches another customs in another country and gets stuck there and I have to pay even more money to have the product pass through. At this point I start figuring out its a scam. I ask for my money back because I know this person is scamming me. They wont give it to me. I either pay for the product or I cant get it. I go to Alibaba to file a complaint but the person has closed their account. I go to file a complaint. Alibaba cant do anything because I did not pay on their site. I did not know you could even pay on their to begin with, its my first time using their site and I trusted the seller to be legitimate. I go to my bank and tell them the story and ask if I can get a refund because I have been scammed. They cant help me because I willingly gave money for a purchase and it was not stolen from my account. My last option is to go to the police. They have me file a claim and give it to a detective to look over. I call the detective and he tells me he is really sorry but he cant do anything for me. The persons name is not a real name, the number is fake and untraceable and his business headquarters turns out to be a tire shop in Ney York as well as the tracking I received is not even real. Catching scammers is apparently really hard. He was my only option, now I am in debt, my credit went down by 17 points, I don’t make that much money as it is and don’t make very much from my job, and I don’t know what to do. Can anyone please help me?
