The Albuquerque-area veterinarian had a bedtime ritual of playing solitaire or on her iPhone before falling asleep. Annoying pop-ups are just part of the routine, she says, but one in particular caught her eye: it was an ad showing a cabinet for sale for $59.99.
The woman bit and used her debit card to purchase the item, although by the end of the next day much more was charged to her card – nearly $400.
“It was a scam,” she said.
Not only did the bogus sellers charge her for three cabinets, but she was also charged for 12 magazine subscriptions.
