Scam contentsI was using my Instagram and got a Ad that was showing an “PLEVO SUITCASE” Only in $0.01, I click on shop now and that moved to:

xinsuangushi.com

I liked it so I moved to purchase it. After that I add this into my shopping cart and move to next step- that was registration and fill some shipping address details after completing registration process 1 popup msg comes on my screen that was as below:

You Should Know Before Purchasing:
Dear customers,
As we cooperate with MasterCard to hold this $0.01 purchase activity , so you can only succeed to pay with MasterCard. To successfully participate in this $0.01 purchase activity, you need to meet 2 requirements:

1.You should pay with MasterCard;
2.Your card must have the international payment function.

You can only purchase successfully when meeting the 2 requirements. If not, our system will block your IP address and you can never participate our $0.01 purchase activity.

After that the total amount of order was coming $4.91 only. So I process for next I enter my master card details there and click yes.

I then got a declined message citing Insufficient Funds. I used my prepaid mastercard which I have about $80 USD. The total payment was $4.91, looked like they were trying to charge over $80 from my card and failed.

I almost got scammed. So like to warn people about this site.

It was for a plevo luggages for a $0.01. I went through the same process except the decline me citing Insufficient Funds. I used my prepaid mastercard which I have about $80 USD. The total payment was $4.91, looked like they were trying to charge over $80 from my card and failed.

Why would my charged be declined if the total payment is only $4.91 USD?

    Same thing all the way! I just thought $4.91 for shipping? I I’ve in Tasmania, Australia so I always pay A LOT for shipping, and specially such a bulky item would logicallyy pay much more. I decided to look for “plevo- review” and this was the first thing that popped up so I won’t even bother putting my card details.
    i also fell for a dish rack and I never received the item so thank you for the heads up.

    Unfortunately I was charged 58€ from my card, yet I received an email with a promise for shipping in 2 to 3 days. Until there, I am not sure weather it's a scam or not. Right now, I think I lost that amount

    Many thanks for putting this scam on records online. I'm surprised companies like Facebook and Instagram allowing such scamsters to blatantly put ads on their webpage. Don't they have some kind of verification process?
