Beware, potential fraudulent announcement

Dear, I am currently waiting for an AP 130 EDF that was being sold by a seller in Portugal. Since I live in Europe, I thought it would be easy, but it is not : I did chat with the seller, got a copy of his ID, and paid the amount for the refractor : since then, I have no news, it has been a week now, I am getting worried, seriously.
So, be careful, the ad is still open, don’t fall for it, an AP130 EDF f6 in Portugal, BE CAREFUL !
(Any astromarter in Europe who got trapped like me, and who know how to take legal actions, please let me know).
Many thanks

I feel bad that good people are getting scammed in Europe by bad people facilitated by Astromart.

I suspected the Ad Classified No.: 458297 was fraudulent and was looking to see if there was a way to get those accounts frozen.

It seems there is more than ID associated with current scams.

Please let us know how to get this to the attention of Astromart organizers and to get the fraudulent accounts locked.
