I mentioned many posts back of a switcheroo where I got jeans instead of expensive jacket (from US). Legitimate businesses respond quickly and alarmingly when this occurs and I was wearing newly sent jacket within the week. It was the US based courier starting with f that they hinted was where it took place.NM, how did they swap, did you actually get in your hands the power tool combo set and new TV, or did they email to say they will deliver.
Did they swap the products, ie, you had ordered $1500 worth of items and the swap was $699 value at the most?
Just trying to deduce if the scammers were the vendors/sellers of the items.
If so, you lost a value of $801, not so bad if so.
Kogan is in my bad books now, ordered a $29 puffer vest 3.5 weeks ago, free shipping, and the item has not arrived.
No notification of item delivered in my email, but never mind, $29 and I get 14 QFF points.
Not going to make a lost item claim, not worth it.
Edit: can we assume that 50% of delivery drivers in Aust are crooked?
Then the worst ones are now the Aust based Wangiri phones, both from mobiles and landlines, have never answered them, so don't know what the end aim is, if its fake AFP, or fake ATO, or fake Dept of Finance, or the "Finance Monitoring Dept" what ever that one is.
Lots of Aust mobile numbers are calling me now, as if I run a scammer answering business, I don't know who owns, and they come all the time, only thing I can do is to let it ring, then block and delete.
Plus landline calls from Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, even NZ, all where I don't know anyone.
