Warning guys, the below page is a scam and has been taking deposits for hot tubs via bank transfer only. They are then not sending them out and blocking the users. They have been reported to Facebook countless times but they refuse to take them offline for some bizzare reason.

    There really needs to be an "Avoid clicking on ads in Facebook if you don't want to lose your money" sticky

    Sorry but IMO anyone who uses bank transfers only has themselves to blame

    If people pay money by bank transfer to a "company" just becuase they are on facebook and have not checked them out well, FATM.

    The advertisers pay Facebook to use the service.  You don't.  Who do you think is Facebook's real customer?

    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.

    You should be asking the victims why do they A use bank transfers and B why buy based on a Facebook advert.

    The problem is though that all over Facebook there are people claiming that bank transfers can easily be reclaimed, there even seems to be an urban myth that there is a single form called a transfer reclaim form that takes a couple of minutes to complete and immediately gets your money back.  Whilst people think that there is no risk then they will continue to support these scammers. 

    As recently as last week on a group I posted that there was no immediate reclaim form, only to be told I was talking rubbish and anyone who knew how banks work would know that they have to give you your money back if you are scammed.

    I wouldnt even use my debit card online,use a credit cad the the banks money,there loss not yours.
    Noticed that in the UK car dealers dont like credit card payments,its not the extra interest charge,its the conditions of the card they hate.
