Question

When you decided to join the group and pay to join, you get a popup asking you to confirm. If you clicked to accept the transaction you are acknowledging and agreeing to pay. Furthermore Lindens don't read this forum so you will not get a reply from any official Linden Lab employee we are all just residents like you. You can try creating  a support ticket but I wouldn't expect to get the money back. Take it as a lesson learned and read what you are clicking "Ok" to.

I went to the store and inspected two of the group joiners.  They appear to work normally and send a link to the group, which you may join.  There is a joining fee of $L500.  This is a large store, and I seriously doubt that the owner is running any kind of a scam.  However, there is a type of scam that someone can run in a situation like this.

If someone put an invisible prim over the object you were trying to click, it might have requested that you pay it.  In that case, the money would get paid to the owner of the invisible prim (in this case, presumably Mesh Maniac).

I then searched on "Mesh Maniac 2013 Gift".  This is a group founded by a three week old avatar.  It is possible that this avatar is running scams.

When you clicked the sign, did it then give you a link in local chat to click, and did that open the group join window?  That is what should have happened.  Then you would click the Join button, which would give you a notice that you are about to pay 500 L to join that group.  If you then accept the notice, you are added to the group.

If that is NOT what happened, you were scammed by a third party.  I suggest you IM the owner of the store and tell them exactly what sign you were trying to use, and exactly what happened when you clicked it...especially if it gave you a Buy option, which is NOT what a group joiner does.  Or if it opened the Group window for "Mesh Maniac 2013", and NOT the group for the wedding store.

Your chances of getting your money back are zero, I'm sorry to say.  But it would be nice to zero in on whoever is running scams and report them.

Zaida,

I know the owners of "G&T Creations Fashion & Romance, Wedding Gowns & Tuxedos" and they are good folks. The group fee keeps out the SPAMers but is is a kind of investment in that designer because the fashions are awesome. As a group member you'll get that L$500 back in just a few of their Sales.

Do make sure that you read those group popups when you see them.
