I just figured they might be using a stolen credit card.It's unproven. But it's clear that t hey aren't making their money from google clicking (2 clicked ads doesn't = .50). IDK. For the record, they've been reported to Amazon, someone has contacted a person with the name on the HIT through email, I personally called google and (in a flight of fancy, the credit card companies. I thought I'd just alert them to a type of scam (not that I understand it, mind you). I just thought they'd be interested in the idea of what was happening (not necessarily follow up on a single situation - ). I thought that they had 'fraud' people who liked to know new things that were out there.
Nope. On the phone with both google and visa for over 1/2 hour to find out that either no one cared (in the case of the former) or no department or individual existed at any extension available to the public (really, the switchboard tried but couldn't even find a number). Crazy. And a waste of time.
OTOH, perhaps the working theory is wrong. I have no idea. None of it makes sense to me.............
