Scam Alert

Scammed By IDEX 14709 182ND ST. Springfield Gardens, NY 11413?

Have you been scammed by a company using the above address? You are not alone! A lot of people have fallen prey to these scammers. However, I have good news for you!

You can get your money back, and also be informed how this scam works.

How Does This Scam Works?

Like many fraudulent online stores, this scam uses social media as a bait to get their victims. They advertise items for cheap discounts, but send something different and far cheaper when a customer orders.

Instead of a laptop mobile desk, you’d receive cheap watch. Instead of a scooter, you get a walking cane. On and on it goes!

This scam uses different Facebook Ads, different websites, email address, and of course sells different products!

However, what you should know is this; IDEX-14709 182nd Street, Springfield Gardens, NY 11413 is the address of a FedEx Authorized shipping company.

In the real sense, it has absolutely nothing to do with the online stores that duped you.

So, how do you catch these thieves?

Unfortunately for now, there isn’t. However, one thing you should do is to leave a review online about the online store NOT the shipping address.

For example if the name of the store you shopped from is ‘moonstone.ltd‘ you should leave a review online using the name, or you can send me a mail so I can warn the public too!

Have You Been Scammed? To Get Your Money Back!

Shopping from this store exposes customers to the risk of hacked credit card and overcharged fees. Also, customers would either receive an inferior item, a different cheaper item, or nothing at all.

You should contact your bank and request for a new credit (debit) card. On the other hand, if you used Paypal as a method of payment, you should document (screenshot) the transactions for future purposes.

It is true that online shopping has made life easier, however when ordering things online check out the following-

How old is the website? Does it provide return address? Are there customer reviews online? Do the social media icons work?

Always remember you can get the items from trusted sellers on Amazon, like the ones provided above. One of the advantages of shopping from amazon is the return policy.

    1. i was got by this fake company. i ordered 3 diamond rings god only know what this BS they sent me. i cancelled my credit card to keep them from taking any more money off my card. they use a fake Zales Diamond store account on facebook

  1. I Recieved a cheap ass watch today I didnt order waiting on a bunk bed sofa and a bed lift both I think are scams

    1. I ordered a Christmas wreath from buyusth and took over 3 months to receive. When I got it, it was totally a cheaply made wreath, smaller than the picture and ribbons were skimpy. I was very disappointed. I tried calling the phone number they have listened and no one answers or returns my calls. After reading reviews on this company I realized I was scammed

    1. I just received a CHEAP AZZ Cain instead of the Scooter I ordered.. I feel like a complete idiot for being Scammed like this. SMH

  2. I bought a wind spinner from christmas-sale.online. After 2 months I got a mans watch. I asked them for directions to turn watch into wind spinner (perhaps an app for my phone). Anything is possible these days. Luckily I used PayPal so I’ll file dispute/claim with them.

  3. I paid $83.00 for a portable wheelchair and received a plastis cane made in China and charged thru Paypal to my Amazon account! At Christmas I ordered the handheld chain saw and received a chain only. How do I get my money back?

    1. Update: I contacted both Paypal and Amazon and was told there was nothing they could do to help me. I would have to contact IDEX. They are impossible to reach! Can anyone give me any idea what to do next? I can’t afford to pay $83.00 for a plastic cane from China.

  4. I purchased a business wallet case with card slot and stylus holder for $33. I receved a case that was much more inferior and cheaper. Should’ve known it was a scam when I saw it was coming from another country! How do I return? Get a refund? Now I’m afraid I may be robbed!

    1. It is not that it came from another country. I order online and get stuff from all over the planet. The issue is that they are not a legit company. I found this because my mom was duped. Please report it, please notify your bank/credit card and even FedEx if it is true that the company is operated from their center. The USPS should also be notified if they sent it via USPS.

  5. Yes, I ordered a blouse. It is cheap looking and doesn’t fit and I can’t even return it because the name of the store is not enclosed, no return info at all.

  6. I ordered a pair of Nikes from MyAmazingStoree. I received a Satanic cheap necklace instead. I looked up the store I ordered from and it doesn’t exist.

  7. I ordered a shirt and sweater. No info enclosed .also a wreath which was a small version of the picture. Took months to received.
