Peabody, MA asked in Consumer Law for Massachusetts

Q: purchased 4 shoes for $1650 and shipped to a friend for $2235, all 4 are fake, I got refunded for 1, what should I do?

The seller is based out of California, I live in Massachusetts, my friend who these were shipped to lives in New York, I bought the 4 pairs mid August, after getting in the shipment we found out 1 was fake right away, I refunded my friend $950, after waiting 3 weeks the seller sent a compensation which as another shoe(which is probaly fake) I got no cash refund only a shoe which I guess I’m fine with if they are real since the value of them is $1050ish. This week my friend sold 1 of the other 3 pairs he had to a sneaker marketplace app called GOAT, before you get any money you ship to the warehouse where they go threw a verification process to make sure they aren’t fakes. The 1 pair didn’t pass and was noted as replicas. This means 2/4 were fake guaranteed, and me and my friend are 99% sure the other 2 are fakes, I want the seller to refund me quicker for the amount that I paid but he won’t text me. The seller has a website under Policies is his free returns policy(he isnt following)

A: Keep after the seller online and by text, but if he/she does not respond, file a small claims complaint and seek multiple damages under G.L. c. 93A, the Massachusetts unfair and deceptive acts statute. The clerk may be willing to help you fill out the small claims form. If/when you get a judgment, send it off to a California collection attorney to collect.
