I recently fell for a scam on Facebook and purchased a cleaning product called Multifunctional All purpose Effervescent cleaning spray from a Facebook company called Oderby.
The product states it can clean the bottom of your pots and pans and bring them up like new. The video on their web page also shows someone cleaning an oven with it, which looks amazing afterwards.
The product takes 4 weeks to arrive and when it does arrive the spray bottle is missing, there are no instructions, and there are 10 white tablets.
I tried the product which does not work, it’s complete lies. Once you have purchased the item the company blocks you from contacting them via Facebook, and stops you from warning others.
Luckily I managed to get a full refund from PayPal, but I just wanted to warn others about this scam.
This was the first time I’ve ever purchased an item from Facebook, and I’m shocked at how these companies are still allowed to sell products through Facebook.
The company is Oderby. Their website is Oderby.com
Please be careful when purchasing items from Facebook. If it looks too good to be true… it most likely is!
