No real contact info, no business info (other than “Funpinpin”).

They use stolen videos in their ads, including stolen videos of children, which is highly problematic (and a really shitty, and disgusting, business practice)

Another Facebook Ad, this time using videos with Children.

    I paid with PayPal so if it is a scam I get a refund

      There are some things to consider, especially for “mystery boxes”:
      1. If you receive an item (say a pair of cheap, off-brand, headphones) worth less than what you payed, there’s a big chance that you won’t be able to get your money back. Why?
      “Items that were described accurately by the seller” are not covered by PayPal Purchase Protection (, and whatever you get they could argue that it’s accurate to the description of a “Mystery box” (that’s why they are so popular among scammers..).
      2. Even if you do get a refund, or a product, you have given your personal information (name, address, e-mail, etc) to the people behind the site, which they then can sell to other, “dubious”, people..
      3. The “store” offers a refund, if you contact them within 48 hours of getting the item. The issue here is that there actually no good way to contact them, even if they have a (often unrelated/suspicious looking) contact e-mail, our experience is that you wont get any reply from them (and they might even “bounce”).
      4. Are you really willing to trust (and support) a business that steals videos etc to use in their ads??

      And IF you are going to “chance” it (as we’ve said before): We won’t scold you (even if we highly recommend to not give these people your money), but we urge you to treat it like gambling, so only use money that you are willing to part with, with the knowledge that you might not get anything from it (and most likely not something that you wanted/wished for).
