Re: Law Enforcement contact

Hello there, dhartmanBGPD,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Best Buy regarding needing some information around your gift card fraud investigation.  This isn’t information that we’d provide either by phone or email, we’d need to verify your status as an actual law enforcement agent, to protect the privacy of our customer’s information.

 

I’ve received your private message, and I’ll be following up with your there shortly with more information.

 

Sincerely,

Bill|Senior Social Media Specialist | Best Buy® Corporate

Re: Law Enforcement contact

Did you ever get the information you needed? I’ve been scammed out of $2000 with Best But gift cards and I’ve been trying to get this issue resolved for months now.

Re: i was gift card scammed

By "scammed out of $2000" do you mean that you created an order for gift cards and never received them, or you gave the gift card details to a scammer?

 

If you never received the gift cards, the moderators may be able to assist in your situation.  Hang tight and they'll be with you within a few days.

 

If you gave your gift card details over to a scammer who then emptied them, Best Buy will assist law enforcement if they reach out for assistance.  This should be the correct course of action, contacting your local law enforcement with all of the details including names, phone numbers, etc. of the scammers to aid in their investigation.  Gift Cards are treated as cash, and should not be provided to anyone.  This is covered in most retailers terms and conditions, including Best Buy's.

Re: Law Enforcement contact

No, but law enforcement said Best Buy should have taken care of this major mishap. This needs to be taken up with our congressional representatives. If you would like, we can bring attention to it.

Re: Law Enforcement contact

Still unclear on what happened. Hang tight, hopefully a moderator can clear up what occurred and give you the best course of action going forward.
