2 crabs for $9.90? Man loses over $18,000 after falling for scam

The deal said $9.90 for two crabs, but a man ended up paying way more than that.  By the time he realised that the promotion was too good to be true, the 31-year-old had over $18,000 less in his bank account. The man came across the deal on Instagram on Wednesday (April 14), he told Lianhe Wanbao. The ad claimed that for just $9.90, customers would receive two crabs with free express delivery, and tacked on top of the graphic was local zi char restaurant 8 Crab s logo. Despite the low price point, he went ahead to place an order as he had ordered from 8 Crabs before. The man said he hadn t suspected a thing as the website looked the same as the previous time. However, an error appeared on the screen after he entered his credit card details and a one-time password (OTP). Just as he thought it was odd for there to be an error, the man received an SMS message informing him his credit card had been linked to an Apple Pay account.
