Type of a scam Online Purchase

I bought a kayak on google ads but it was a scam.

The seller sent a 0.4lb box to somewhere and used the UPS tracking to get the money from paypal.

Here is the proof from UPS live chat:

ROGELIO JR D (7/14/2020, 3:19:35 PM): That’s the shipping information of the package.

"This package (1Z6X77R60388353864) shipped by Amazon was delivered correctly but this is not for you and is to a different address that is also somewhere in SUWANEE GA".

ROGELIO JR D (7/14/2020, 3:19:46 PM): We can’t send this through email but our chat transcript is a solid proof.

when you search ‘kayak’ from an apple mobile phone on google, google ads will show the scam website. The scammer used different google ads over the last 2 weeks including

My Internet prover is SPECTRUM. Their Agent said the caller is trying to get personal information and I should ignore the call.

3/1/2019 Same call again. I did not respond, just hung up..

An unauthorized device was listening to my Pandora account. This was clear because the unauthorized user created new stations in my list that I would never want. I informed Pandora customer service by email (they have no phone support) and asked for the names of devices associated with my account. Instead of giving me that info (which the rep said they had), they offered to send me an IP log if I first emailed them my date of birth and copy of my driver’s license. I suspect this was fake customer support designed to get additional personal info from me so that the hacker could then steal my identity.

The caller stated he was with ATT and to inform our company they needed to verify the changes in our long distance services. He said they had sent out a letter in regards to the changes and as of the date of the phone call, they had not received the response back and need to inform us THAT DAY of the changes and to make SURE we were aware of them. I stated we didn’t use ATT and they were mistaken and that our company uses Spectrum/Time Warner. He stated ATT had purchased Time Warner over 11 months ago. He then went on to state they were no longer using the long distance carrier Time Warner had used and were now using Netcom as the carrier and needed to verify the numbers. They went thru a phone line checking process.

After getting off the phone with them, I called Spectrum/Time Warner and asked if any of their statements were true and the representative said no. He also reassured me that our service was still in effect with Spectrum/Time Warner and the scammers needed to have a special pin number in order to transfer service. He also stated I would have received an email in regards to the transfer of service request.

The company received the attached letter confirming the change of the services "ordered". I called the number listed on the letter and the person answering the phone wanted to know why we were canceling. I replied we did not order their services and their company had mispresented themselves. She responded with an attitude and asked me if I "wanted her to replay the tapes".
