Think I got scammed

Post by freekmccoy »

I was on Amazon looking at an Amcrest outdoor PoE camera last week as I have 4 of the ptz indoor ones and wanted to stay with the brand... I see a FB ad about being an Amcrest tester so I bit...I got emails and FB messenger messages from what I thought was Amcrest.. told me to buy certain camera then test for a week, leave feedback and my money would be refunded.. package came today and it was... dog chews :roll: . return label on package says “Amcrest Direct” .. hope it was an Amazon mistake,but I’m afraid I’ve been duped.. contacted Amazon and set up a return.

Hello and Welcome to the Forum

Very strange that someone would do such a thing... Was it Amcrest Technologies on facebook? or so random account? I would send all info you have to Amcrest so they have record of this event...

Wow that is messed up... I am going to guess that someone at the Distro Center must have made a mistake on Pulling your order... I am going to guess that it came from a Center and Not Amcrest in Texas?
