CUMMING, Ga. — A man reported to deputies June 29 that he was scammed numerous times while online. The man said he had received a pop-up demanding he purchase an eBay card for $750 and send in the card number. The demands continued, and he repeated this process until the total value reached $8,750. Each card was for a different amount.

His son informed him that it was a scam and he stopped. He kept all of the cards but could not provide them all when speaking with authorities. When he attempted to cancel the cards and recover his money, he was told it was too late.
