Fraudulent order, California, USA

1 week ago reported by user-ggpy9166

I recently purchased a walking pad via TikTok shop. In the past I’ve always received exactly what I’ve ordered. But not this time. Upon purchase, my checking account was charged $99 but yesterday to my surprise the only thing I received was a photograph of the item.
