On Nov. 2, I bought a battery charger from Mahmoud Motaz, selling through ZORSTORE.COM. I paid $58.44, using my credit card. I paid through PayPal, because they supposedly do not charge my card until the sale is verified.
My credit card company quickly emailed me, saying that it was a scam and they cancelled the invoice. BUT the sale was passed through PayPal IMMEDIATELY.
PayPal suggested it might be a scam, BUT then they said it was OK. Also, they said after I complained, that it was very similar to other transaction in the past.
I did not get a confirmation of sale and I have not gotten the product.
PayPal and my bank failed in their fiduciary responsibility. Only my credit card company did their job and tried to protect me.
I am in the process if closing my PayPal account and I will soon be changing banks. I will NEVER do business with PayPal again. I'm done with them, even though I've relied on their secure software for years. Now it's no so secure.
My current bank is Bank OZK. They refuse to acknowledge that their software is crap. It should have caught this scam.
BEWARE: avoid buying through ZORSTORE.COM or MAHMOUD MOTAZ, unless you enjoy losing money . And be careful dealing with PayPal. They do not stand behind their promises.
It seems the that MAHMOUD MOTAZ is an experienced scam artist. He may be impersonating other honest sellers. If you see his name during purchase ... run for the hills!
I'll be posting this review wherever I can so help others avoid this scammer.
