PayPal paid order# 22T40068P6120535Y on August 25, 2020
Your comments / analysisWhat a scam! I was looking at a Stihl handheld chainsaw, but when I ordered it, it went to a different sight called Swagbings. Took my order from PayPal and thanked me for my order, but nothing ever shipped!

    Ordered a chainsaw that I never received. Can't get any reply from email contact. Link to "check my order" doesn't work. I believe this entire company is a SCAM. They also operate under Swagbings, newboat, lamechstore, vernonhandy32, and mournshop. Probably more!

    Same thing happened to me. I thought I could trust an ad on Face Book

    FB seems not to have problem with putting us in FB jail if we use our freedom of speech, but scam ads are ok!,,

    Same happened to me. I too, thought I could trust Facebook ads.

  • Melinda 09/24/2020 at 12:37 AM

    Same here. This was the first scam for me. Why Facebook is allowing these sites on, is it $$$ ?

  • Jeanna 10/03/2020 at 01:11 PM

    Yes. I ordered a battery powered woodcutter through a facebook ad. From this company. It didnt ship so I started a dispute with paypal. PayPal was able to get in touch with them. After 5 weeks, my order came in. It wasnt a battery powered woodcutter, instead i got a chainsaw chain with a strap attached to both ends. I was furious by this time. I was able to escalate with paypal. PayPal ruled in my favor and I just received my money back.

    Absolutely a scam. I ordered the saw also. I got a package alright, but wasn't a saw. It was a chain.

    And I am spreading it to the world everyday possible about this site. And u better check your bank account cause after ordering, strange things started coming out of my account. Had to cancel paypal and my debit card...

    Same thing happened to me. I also ordered two stihl hand held chain saws

  • Paulette 10/10/2020 at 09:23 PM

    I ordered one it is a total scam

  • Cindy 10/13/2020 at 11:27 PM

    I ordered these saws in August. Never got it. Today I get a package with
    with a chain in it. There is no way to contact this seller. What a scam. I won’t order from a Facebook add again.

    Same has happened to me ordered chain saw in August had tracking number but was delivered to different name and address. told by Australia post this happens to a lot of items from China. Can`t believe Facebook allow scam companies to advertise on their site

    Was offered a refund of 1/2 of what I paid for by the "seller". What was supposed to be a battery operated "handheld chainsaw" which ended up being a chain with two straps on it. Jokes on me. They said they'd take it back but it would cost me $20.00 to send it back! I told the "seller" that I want my full purchase price back. I'm hoping PayPal will refund the entire amount. I will never order anything the advertises on Facebook ever again.

  • Brian 10/19/2020 at 10:01 PM

    Same story here...... I remember thinking at the time this might be too good to be true but took a chance. Eight weeks later I get a chain with a leather strap on each end.

  • Annette 10/20/2020 at 08:07 PM

    SAME!! scammed me too.. Got 2 chains in the mail. They said they need to fix the advertisement. Clearly, that's not going to happen. They want to give me 15% of the funds back?!?!?! WHAT, no.. we're up to 40% now. But Paypal seems like the best route. what a horrible company!!! First issue I have had buying off FB.. Maybe cured me.. You just never know!

  • Ewall 10/23/2020 at 10:21 PM

    Scammed me too. I ordered two and got two chains. I have put a dispute in with PayPal and hope to get my money back. I will never order anything that is advertised on Facebook again. I was scammed once before with an order from Facebook

  • Carole 10/24/2020 at 03:08 AM

    I too ordered battery operated handheld chain saws. After much delay, received two chains with a rope on each end. You throw the chain over a branch and use arms to saw back and forth. Been going back and forth with seller and paypal. Found websites to get help--your local consumer protection office, local US Postal Inspector, Better Business Bureau in your area, or Direct Marketing Association ( I'm going to my postal Inspector first.

    Here's my story. This seller said that they were selling a Cricut machine and bundle package, (which is no longer on their website,) So, I ordered it in July through PayPal, and they said they sent it out. They provided me with a tracking number, but I couldn't get into the system because it required a Verification Code. When I emailed the seller and asked for the verification code, I never got one; (That was red flag #1.)

    All they sent me back was the same, so-called tracking number. A week later when I questioned the seller, I was told that the package was delivered, and that someone had signed for it. I told them that that couldn't be so, for I'm home all day. They insisted that it must've been one of my neighbors. I told the seller that my neighbor to the right of me was in the hospital, and to the left of me; they worked all day, so I had caught the seller in lie number one.... Read more

    Scammed me too. Trying to get Paypal to give me my money back but they are saying that they provided a tracking number and that I have received the saws. I had ordered two saws. PayPal is in on this scam and they will not give me my money back.

  • Darlene 10/26/2020 at 09:08 PM

    Ordered a "Battery-Powered" chain saw on Facebook and all I got was approx. a 2 foot length of chainsaw chain with handles at each end. TOTAL SCAM. I communicated with them for approx. two weeks which were mostly "stalling" tactics by them, but, in the end, they admitted I did not get what was advertised and offered a 10% refund which I refused. I filed a dispute with PayPal, sent them a copy of my Order Confirmation (showing a picture of the Stihl Battery-Powered GTA 26 Chain Saw and identified the product purchased as "Battery-Powered Wood Cutter GTA 26 Powered Chainsaw") , the entire chain of e-mails, and a picture of what I received. If PayPal does not refund the charge as my evidence is unrefutable, I will not longer have any trust in... Read more
