The advertisement first appeared on an Instagram stories ad which states that bikes worth $300+ are on sale at $100 for a limited time.
I went on to view a bike of my interest, a Diamondback Calico 1 Road Bike, which was selling at $99 at the time, plus free shipping.
I went on to make my purchase by typing in my card details and mailing address, paid $99 for it.
Afterwards, I checked my bank account balance to make sure they deducted the right amount. However, I realized I lost $134 instead of $99. To make it worse, it was not reflected in my transaction history.
The next day, I decided to return to the website to check on my order status, only to find out that I couldn’t access the site.
The only notice stated was “The domain is marked as inactive. For more information, please contact your hosting provider”. Hence, I could not access the site to check my order status.
