report it with a dispute to your card issuer and report it to and let's get this scammer shut down, too many of their web site items are in google search now and just the pages come up to order, so you dont really see the entire site in order to wonder why a site that mostly shows clothing and kid stuff has things like electrical cable, breaker boxes and generator switches.

This outfit is definitely a scammer, I ordered a 250 foot roll of copper and steel electrical cable from what I THOUGHT was a US based web site, it turned out my order was actually coming from CHINA, after waiting all this time a shipment arrived the other day, but they shipped five N95 face masks in an unsealed ziplock baggie in an "epacket"

his was what I actually ordered; cable&description=true

This is the address for the website store I purchased this from, I had no idea my order was coming directly from china and that it would take WEEKS when I needed this wire ASAP and went by the near to me NEBRASKA location,

Email Address 1926 South 67th Street, Suite 250, Omaha, Nebraska 68106

their web site shows an email addres but hovering over it shows this instead;

their support page also says this which indicates they are in Nebraska; Our details 7.1 This website is owned and operated by (ationfon). 7.2 Our principal place of business is at 1926 South 67th Street, Suite 250, Omaha, Nebraska 68106

I responded to a partial refund offer of $41 with a NO, I will not accept a partial refund, I waited FIVE WEEKS for electrical cable I thought was coming from Omaha Nebraska and would be here in 2-3 days to use on a project I needed to finish, instead I had to buy another roll elsewhere since I had no idea the wire was actually coming directly from CHINA, as it turned out it took FIVE WEEKS to get a shipment, and then if that wasn't bad enough it was COMPLETELY the WRONG ITEM! What am I supposed to do with a packet of N95 face masks? they sent me the WRONG item and I waited five weeks, sorry but they cant seriously expect me to pay for their own error! The Transaction amount was $51.86 USD and that is what I reasonably expect to be refunded, I'm not paying for something I never ordered or wanted, least of all a medical/health related product that arrived in an unsealed ziplock baggie!

They then offer a refund of what I paid but they demanded I mail it back to China at MY expense, and the USPS approx cost to do that is about $16. Aside from all this, do these people REALLY expect return of MEDICAL/health products that came in an unsealed baggie and now could be contaminated, to resell them to someone else? UGH! you seriously never know what you might get from china like N95 masks that have been shipped out and returned who know where, who touched them, how or where they were made.

I was getting fedup with Paypal and among other messages in cluded this;

They are expecting me to pay over $16 to return 5 paper N95 masks- an item I never ordered, that they sent by mistake. Either they send a full refund and postpaid label if they want this returned, or I'll escalate this to my visa card for them to take action, Ive already proven with documents this seller is a FRAUD with many complaints for doing exactly what happened to me- switching a purchased item to face masks or nothing shipped.

I filed a legal internationalmail-order fraud complaint with the US Postal Service against this seller, attached is a copy of my complaint

Then "Cindy" at Paypal said;

I am so sorry that this happened to you.

I can help you with this. This is a common scheme that the fraudsters are doing. I need you to do these 3 things: 1. Please take a picture of the envelope the item came in. Make sure we can see the tracking number and the weight of the package.

2. Go to and file a report with them.

3. upload these two documents to this message and we will get it added to the case and get the case closed in your favor.

The label you submitted already is unreadable, please upload a new one. Just the label is perfect.

After I did that, and sent the documents, I got THIS;


2:49 PM

I am sorry you are having issues with this purchase. I have the information you have provided to the case. The seller is requesting you return the item before they will issue a full refund. Below is information on PayPal return shipping program:

To enroll in Return Shipping on Us, please visit:

I really got few up with them and sent paypal this;

Rodger I filed a FRAUD complaint with the the post office and the sit are you seriously telling me I have to mail back 5 disgusting paper N95 face masks that arrived in an open ziplock bagies at a cost of about $16 for postage for THEIR fraud? They WILL claim I opened the package and its not in the same condition it was and then refuse to refund what they stole from me plus $16 for postage

This was clearly FRAUD and nobody should be paying shipping to return this

This is certainly NOT at all convienient for me to drive to the post office on my lunch hour to deal with this d**n idiot in china, I am about 15 seconds away from CLOSING my paypal account over this!

Cindy indicated above ALL I had to do was provide the documents she asked for, and Paypal would close the case and side with me, now you adding the demand to ship items back? Here are two photos of what I received from this seller, 5 disgusting N95 face masks in an open, unsecured ziplock baggie from CHINA, and they want THIS mailed back at my expense which the post office indicates will run about $16, and then they'll sell them to someone else, really? I dont even want to touch this shipment due to possible covid19 contamination and not even knowing where the seller obtained these masks FROM, or who handled them before . Since the ziplock bag arrived open, they would claim it was not open and refuse to refund my money anyway, this is a scam others have reported and I'm not playing their bait and switch game. I am going to discard this possibly contaminated medical waste and file a dispute with my visa card if paypal is not going to issue a full refund for the amount I paid. I will also then close my Paypal account as it would be obvious to me that Paypal sides with scammers who bait and switch and commit fraud on people, I will not spend part of my busy lunch hour driving to the post office to stand in line and mail this stuff back to China on my money and then wait weeks for them to respond. I already uploaded documents proving I filed an internet fraud complaint with the FBI/US Govt, and one with the US Postal inspector, I will not deal with an obvious scammer who now has my name, email address and home address to possibly steal or use. Let me know what Paypal's decision on this is ASAP.

They then responded with this and a FULL refund;


7:20 PM

Hello and I am truly sorry the seller sent you the wrong item and I was able to review the claim.

I have closed this claim and refunded the transaction back to the card ending in 20. The credit will take 24-48 hours to appear on your card and I have also sent you a email with all the claim closure details.

Again I am truly sorry for the inconvenience this transaction has caused and the claim is closed and the refund complete.

Thanks for being a long term customer and please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

File a claim with your card, PayPal was a real pain, but Visa generally is good and will usually side with you- THEIR customer.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
