She didn't think anything of this until she noticed the next day that she had fraudulent charges made on her Visa card. She checked her bank statements and found three separate charges made which totaled $296. The money was charged to an Apple Cash account that she believes is linked to the man. The woman was able to dispute the charges and received her money back from the bank. She gave the information she had on the man to police. She wants to make sure this doesn't happen again and is undecided on prosecution at this time. Police were unable to locate any real information on the man.
