Oregon, Day 4: Scamalot

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:

www.beatsdre.website/

www.waacup.com/beats_headset/shop_now

www.we.space/

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!

UGHHH.

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! 😘

Love,

Grace 💜

  1. Man, that must have been insanely frustrating!! Oh, and I can totally relate with the earbuds…earbuds are very annoying..they break, and get all tangled up…
    Maybe this will cheer you up:
    How do you tie the hardest knot in the world??
    Step One: Place a pair of earbuds in your pocket.
    Step Two: Wait one minute.
