I purchased a pet camera from Amazon, I received it about 2 days later so very quick. After 2 weeks of use I had 2 occasions where the camera would go offline, it wasn’t a massive issue but annoying and I gave a mixed review on Amazon for it.

About a week later (2 days ago) I received a very poorly worded email from someone Chinese saying sorry about your product, can I send you a replacement free of charge, I said ok as I gather they would then want me to remove the mixed review. Then yesterday I receive another email saying they are not in stock can I send you a full refund, I said ok. Then I get another email today saying is your PayPal email address ..... as the money is waiting.

Now firstly I didn’t pay with PayPal, secondly this product wasn’t sent from China as I got it super quick. I checked the amazon site for the camera and it is indeed out of stock but I want to know is this a scam? What can they get from knowing my PayPal email address ?

Thank you for any advice

Sorry, but this is outside the scope of this forum and not something that we can help you with.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
