Guys, y’all should know what happened to me today after looking at the title of my post. . .
Today has been FRUSTRATING to say the least!
So. . . Basically, my earbuds shorted again for like the THOUSANDTH time!
And, I decided that I was going to upgrade my $10 Apple earbuds and get Beat headphones, so that I wouldn’t have to keep replacing my earbuds. . .
So, I got on my computer and searched “Beats wireless solo 3,” which is the model of headphones Alyssa has.
And, if you search that, the first website that pops up is. . .
Then you are taken to this site. . .
GUYS!!! This is a SCAM!
All of these website links are LINKED to the SAME website:
Beats by Dr. Dre IS A SCAM!!!
(If you buy them online and not from Best Buy.)
I bought a set of silver Beats solo 3 headphones. And, then I got a confirmation email from pay pal. . . But, I don’t have pay pal so it wanted me to confirm my account.
This made me start digging into what I had just done.
I noticed the email I got DID NOT have an order number on it. . .🤔🤔🤔
I got even more suspicious that I had been duped when I couldn’t find the number.
So, I went to the support system and got on three different chats trying to figure out if I could just cancel my order.
I was redirected to Apple’s support chats, NOT DR. DRE’S website support chats.
THERE’S A DIFFERENCE!!!
One woman searched my order in her system FOUR different ways before telling me to try calling directly from a chat on the Beats by Dre website.
I did, and the guy was from Apple, which is NOT where I purchased the headphones from.
He was super nice and after seven minutes of explaining the situation to him, he told me I had been scammed. . .😖😟😥😫😒
I was so frustrated that people try to scam innocent people out of their money!
I went around and around for 2 hours trying to fix the mess I got myself into!!!
Anyway, I contacted my bank and after the holidays are over, the bank will help me get my money back; until then, they froze my card.
And, now I’ll have to get another one. . .
And while all this is happening, I’m having a mental breakdown because I’ve never delt with a scam so severe first hand. . .
But, as I was crying tears of pain and frustration, everyone else, all 10 of them, were in the living room waiting for me to come play a game with them! 😣
I was embarrassed, but the game we played was fun! My team won 9 out of the 11 rounds we played!
Anyway, please, PLEASE don’t fall into this trap that I fell into! Let your friends and family know that it may seem like an innocent website but it’s NOT!
Stay safe tomorrow! 😘
