1. Is MPM Hobbies a scam?
A. We are a registered LLC in the state of Florida U.S.A. We also have stores on Ebay and Amazon plus set ups on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, google and MSN. Majority of my adult life I've been trusted with things way more valuable than a $2.50 jar of paint. Not a scam.
2. Why don't you sell on Facebook and Instagram?
A. They banned me. Why? I have no idea. Cant sell or advertise but we do have a page. It’s useless but it’s there. UPDATE: They let my wife use her account to sell and advertise so it is in the works. I still have no idea why I was banned.
