Scam Description

I saw this video on TikTok about a girl getting revenge on her boss. She said she checked that morning to see if the code was active and it was. There were only a few likes so I thought I was finally getting in on the ground floor of something before it became so popular her employer would notice. So I go to the site. Jewellery looks real and photos are all similar (I’m sure they stole them from someone). Rings were price above $100. So I add two to my cart and check out. I had a weird charge for higher ($26 instead of $25) and quickly did some more digging. I found it was a scam, went to my bank to get a new card and deactivate the other one. For reference, I ordered this in February and it is now easy October with no signs of getting it. I reached out in April and “Corey” said they were backed up with the influx of orders. I just emailed them today, Oct 5 2023 and the email address can’t be found.
