    I consider myself a pretty smart person and I did have reservations about this purchase but I thought if it was through Pay Pal it must be ok. I was wrong and yes if it sounds to good to be true, it is.

    Do not make any purchases from Noteama! I paid for a storage shed and got ripped off them I remember now that the website also popped up when I was looking for a bike rack which I did not purchase through them. I do wonder though how they provide a Legitimate tracking number for UPS? When I track online it says delivered but when I try to file a claim it says still in transit, when I ask my UPS driver he said he hasn’t had anything for me...and gave me a phone number which takes me back to all of this again.

    I also have fallen victim to the $99.00 shed. My husband told me "If it sounds to good to be true, then it is." Wish I would have listened to him. Track the shed till it said it was in US customs. Of course it never was. So I wrote that money off. Never will order anything on a whim again. $99.00 is a lot of grocery money lost.

    I was playing the bubble game and they advertise that shed a lot, so I bought it. The game people just lost me before they put an advetizment on their site they should check it out before they accept suppliers. I will share with my friends and tell them about the bubbles video game

    I purchased one on March 8th 2020. No acknowledgement from the sellers nor goods. HAve started an investigation through my credit card company. The sheds are still being advertised, although they have different company names. Don't know if I will get my money refunded or not,

    I offered one of the green houses. Never received it either. Ordered in August of 2019. Question: why did Facebook allow them to advertise their so called items for sale? Facebook should of removed their it and sent out an alert to the public immediately!

    Beware of Enjoy-Products which is the company I "purchased" my shed from. This shed never showed up. Never again will I purchase anything off of Facebook. It is really sad that people try so hard to scam others instead of doing good. Karma will come back and get them.

    Same thing happened saw $99 shed sale on facebook, clicked on it, ordered it back in Aug, tracked to Nagbing, China was in transit until beginning of Nov, then went to expired. Contacted the "company" and they couldn't tell me anything other than use tracking number. Very frustrating, already lost the money!

  • November 12, 2019 at 2:28 AM by an anonymous user from: Arbutus, Maryland, United States

    Facebook should put a stop to this fake advertising. We can't afford to lose our money to these crooks.

  • November 12, 2019 at 2:26 AM by an anonymous user from: Arbutus, Maryland, United States

    My husband ordered the $99.00 shed almost 2 months ago; the same thing, no product and email telling us to be patient if I could. Find them and kick there a*s we are both retired...

    I have also been scammed by this fraudulent company. I should have known if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't right.

    Up until today, they are still telling me that my order has shipped and the last email told me it had been delivered. What a fool I've been!

    • September 30, 2019 at 9:46 AM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

      how did you get in touch with them please? My bank need me to get in touch.

  • September 25, 2019 at 6:09 AM by an anonymous user from: Southport, England, United Kingdom

    It's a scam, we are waiting for a refund.

  • September 18, 2019 at 9:17 AM by an anonymous user from: Hartford, Connecticut, United States

    Purchased this $99 garden shed online through Facebook on August 30,2019.

    Received no confirmation or tracking information since.

    The charge on my account was to Ballina Carfix Ballina AU.

    It gave a category of:

    Merchandise Mens/Lady Clothing.

    Just didn't make any sense so I believe we were scammed.

    • October 3, 2019 at 9:31 AM by an anonymous user from: Atlanta, Georgia, United States

      My husband also ordered this and he has emailed them and said he hasn't recieved it and they just keep saying wait patiently its on its way. Ours also says ballina carfix in south wales
