An ad on facebook offering a special sale on boots for $54.41 total. The images were being used by multiple "companies" online but after the purchase the website shared that they had a "back order" on the boots and it would take a few weeks to ship them. The company website has disappeared along with my money. No boots.

Type of a scam Online Purchase
Purchase of boots was made on 11/23/18, after seeing advertisement on Instagram. Reply email after purchase said order will be prepped and shipped in 1-3 weeks. Follow up email after 3 weeks went unanswered. A second email, at 4 week mark, got response stating another 1-3 weeks, due to postal strike in Canada. Follow up emails placed after 2 weeks were sent, no reponse. Then after 3 weeks and so on, never with a response. Somewhere during this time emails were kicked back saying unable to send as email did not exist. Online research found a new website: (old: www.adelemarket.com) (new: www.theadelemarket.com). New website allowed for IM feature, messages were sent 3 times and none were responded to, despite saying it would be returned in a matter of hours. More emails sent, all kicked back. Sent final IM message stating I wanted order canceled, money returned and confirmation email that this was done, all of which have gone unresponsive.
