Didn’t do my research like I should. Got me to transfer money but never gave me a tracking number as promised. Will not respond to emails or texts. Lost almost $300.

Type of a scam Online Purchase
I went on line to make a purchase of Cannabis oil for vape. I was sent an invoice & sent information to pay via western union. I received a receipt & my order showed up on line. The receipt asked me to sent the western union info in a reply e-mail. Once payment was received my order would be updated from "on hold". I would receive a tracking number. The payment was picked up the next day, but my order continued to be "on hold". Their web-site looks legit & is very well done. I tried contacting then via multiple e-mails, text, their on-line (website) chat & phone. No reply to any. It wasn’t until I started looking into this more that I went to their contact page which shows the business listed in Washington, DC the WU money went to GA. The phone traces to White Plains, NY. I filed a report in WA state with the Attorney General & Western Union. Hopefully these guys can be caught before someone else gets scammed.
