    My fiancé & I were scammed about the sheds for $99 with Walmart. Also another company with the name of Tools something is doing this same scam but for $38 dollars, I honestly don’t know how these scammers can sleep at night! I’m livid!

    I so agree with the above comment. I saw the ad on the main internet page along side daily news tidbits, it looked totally legit, yes I thought it was too good to be true but again thought what have I got to loose, maybe it is a bargain. Well I ordered one, my pay pal was charged, I have not heard from them, I tried writing to their email and its undeliverable. Lesson learned. How can they advertize on the internet if its not legit?

    I can’t believe there are so many suckers. You get what you pay for. If it seems too good to be true, well, then...duh. Hopefully you’ve learned a valuable lesson & only lost $100 & not $1000. DO YOUR RESEARCH PEOPLE! I also think it’s incredibly ironic that Facebook can censor certain content, yet they can’t keep the third world scammers off of their platform. It reeks of corruption, is borderline criminal & I personally think Mark SUCKERBERG & his shady Facebook should be held at least partly accountable.

    purchased a shed for 99.00 from udug97@163.com which I can not locate

  • August 28, 2020 at 2:08 PM by an anonymous user from: Waldorf, Maryland, United States

    The company that scammed me was listed as Shih Wong. Nothing is available about this on the internet. Thank goodness I used PayPal or they would have drained my account. Tracking said USPS delivered, but that was a complete fabrication.

  • July 28, 2020 at 3:09 PM by an anonymous user from: Pell City, Alabama, United States

    I also bought a Shed on Facebook. And I went through PayPal. I have never received it. Sandra from Alabama.

  • July 16, 2020 at 9:06 PM by an anonymous user from: Tallahassee, Florida, United States

    They put the shed $99 on Facebook a lot and like other people, I thought since it was through PayPal then it was legit.

    My daughter saw this website and asked me not to order it, but I already had. | notified Paypal right away, but the charge had already been put on my account and it said it was for CLOTHING!

    Too late for me, but not for someone else.

    If it sounds too good, then it isn't.

  • July 12, 2020 at 7:39 PM by an anonymous user from: Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States

    I just got took today on Facebook for a $99 shed, but I contacted my bank right away and it is pending on credit card. Bank said once it posts to my account thy will dispute it for me. credit card cancelled.

  • July 11, 2020 at 9:16 PM by an anonymous user from: San Clemente, California, United States

    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

  • April 21, 2020 at 1:15 PM by an anonymous user from: Rochester, England, United Kingdom

    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,

  • January 9, 2020 at 11:54 AM by an anonymous user from: New Iberia, Louisiana, United States

    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!

  • January 8, 2020 at 11:47 AM by an anonymous user from: Hartford, Connecticut, United States

    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.

  • November 23, 2019 at 11:03 AM by an anonymous user from: Wallkill, New York, United States

    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 18, 2019 at 9:50 PM by an anonymous user from: Washington, District of Columbia, United States

    Bought 3, followed tracking to san fransisco then gone...said it was delivered but no sheds no confirmation. How do these keep happening?

  • 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...

  • October 16, 2019 at 1:55 PM by an anonymous user from: Portland, Oregon, United States

    Fighting the bank to return my money. Ordered 8/16/19, addressed the bank 9/4/19 about this scam and they returned my money 30 days later and charged me back.

    This is a joke that facebook allows company to be on their site shame on them.

  • October 11, 2019 at 8:22 PM by an anonymous user from: Seattle, Washington, United States

    Got hit for $187 and had actually forgotten about it as I travel quite a bit. Paying some bills off and noticed a charge that I couldn't place. Yep. They got me too.

  • September 26, 2019 at 7:37 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    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

  • September 15, 2019 at 11:36 PM by an anonymous user from: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

    We have found out that we are some how been linked to this scam.

    If your credit card statement has Heytesbury,Cobden,Vic,3266,Aus, it is no way associated with our business Heytesbury House in Cobden

    • November 25, 2019 at 2:40 PM by whannem from: Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
