I went to purchase trainers via the platform Depop but the account user redirected me to their official Instagram shop - @shoehubuk. It was through here that I purchased some trainers for £130.
They asked me for size & style, a delivery address and email for confirmation. They then said to complete the purchase transfer to SHOE HUB and gave me account details.
I was so busy with other things yesterday I just did it without thinking - and the minute I transferred the money it dawned on me that it was a transfer directly from my account as opposed to paypal or through depop as I had initially intended - something I would never normally do.
Unfortunately by the time I then googled shoehubuk and found this page, the money had left my account. I've contacted my bank who are looking into this, am really hoping I can get payment returned.
Have since contacted the account to ask for tracking or a refund and have been blocked! Has anyone had any luck in finding this person or getting their money back?
If someone has a number etc that would be so helpful for me to send across to the investigation team. Absolutely furious!
