Bottom line without beating around the bush, I’ve been scammed on Shpock and lost a lot of money. So need your help for a new phone !!

Hi, I’m not usually lost for words, so it’s hard to start when the actual person who needs help with funding is myself. So here goes, I’m hoping this is a viable reason for a funding page. If it isn’t it’s ok, It can be a information page to help anyone thinking about purchasing goods on Gumtree/ Shpock etc. 

I lost a lot of money trusting someone on SHPOCK, the person sounded very genuine and honest. I paid for the latest IPhone by Bank Transfer ( please don’t do this ). This person promised a delivery the next day and guess what, no phone and no money.

My bank have told me it’s unlikely I will get my money back.  So please whatever you do don’t pay via Bank Transfer on these seller apps. Always always pay cash on collection or PayPal. You are covered with PayPal. 

Now back to my funding page, I need some donations for a new phone. It’s not the end of the world if i don’t get it but it will ease my pain over losing so much money since it took over a year to save that amount. I thought since I take part in charity events at least 3/4 times a year , I can perhaps ask for something back. 

Thank you and please think before you buy and pay online. 

All the best
