I wanted to buy a new doggie bed for my King Charles, as the old one is getting pretty worn out.
I researched on the Internet and found just what I wanted then searched for the cheapest price.
Furrybeds of Coventry seemed the best bet and I placed the order and paid £35
A confirmation email arrived telling me the order had been processed and delivery was due within 2 weeks.
I relaxed and thought everything was OK
When I hadn’t received a delivery or heard anything further, after about 3 weeks I contacted them again to be told there was a delivery problem and I needed to wait a couple more weeks.
Still nothing so I tried to contact them again, but there was no response on their phone number or emails.
The ’company’ had disappeared and my money with them.
Checking further I found a number of reviews on the Internet showing other people had also been ripped off.
My only hope is to recover the money from my credit card company.
I have now learned to be more careful online and to pick well established suppliers where possible and to always check for reviews before purchasing from anyone new to me.
It’s not worth the risk to save a few pounds and don’t be taken in by Facebook adverts which is where I first saw the dogie beds.
If you have any experiences with these scams do let me know, by email.
