Ok, so I'm a dummy. I ordered (via an ad in USA Today) a free trial E-cigarette from Smoking Everywhere over the Internet. And no, I apparently didn't read all the fine print in their confusing online ordering process. Naturally they provide you no copy of what you are agreeing to, typical of Internet scammers.
Turns out that the $9.99 I paid was for shipping only, and that if I didn't return the item to them within 14 days, my credit card would be charged another $100. Needless to say, although I rather liked the item, I returned it, because this deal didn't smell good at all.
Fast forward to this week. After hearing nothing from Smoking Everywhere, and seeing no charge on my card, I got another package from them containing 2 boxes of filter refills and an invoice for $18 marked "Paid"- presumably with my credit card- and the notation "monthly refill".
Oh, isn't that special. I HATE THESE SCAM ARTISTS. This will be another interesting adventure.
