Sounds like Ronnie might be trying to keep the bots at bay with some planted stories...Im gonna call #FAKENEWS on this one...Depending on what the receipt says (ive never used a bots so I dont know what confirmation you get) but if you clearly was trying to purchase something else and you get these....sounds like charge back to me...I mean regardless of how you make a purchase...bot or manually...a company cant KNOWINGLY try and deceive there customers....there HAS to be something illegal about that...
