Scam Description

I took a quick survey I saw on an ad while playing Wordle after the survey, for my time, I was to receive an IPad I would only need to pay $1.00 to to process the order/shipping. I know I’m an idiot. I was charged the next day 7.95$ not the 1$ that was represented to me. So, I immediately had the bank start refuse payment proceedings. The very next day, before I could even get a new card (I was going down that morning), they hit me for $56.95. I have no idea what that was supposedly for. So, I killed that card which has since been hit on 2-3 more times for the same $56.95. So I’m now in the process of recouping my 7.95 minus 1$ I agreed to plus the 56.95$ So $63.90 is owed to me by these neredowells. I may or may not ever get it back just hope this helps someone yet or better yet has them up on charges. Why can’t people just get a job like most of us in this country. Thanks, Tony Landon
