One after another, all of the man’s attempts failed until he finally achieved his purpose: after 28 attempts, the web allowed him to process the payment with no problem. However, when he went to the personal profile that had been created on the website of the electric car manufacturer, he found a surprise: had bought 28 cars.
After contacting Tesla, the manufacturer canceled all 28 orders to have it ordered again from the beginning.
Although the system had given him an error in each attempt to process the payment, the truth is that he had approved the transaction so the buyer found that, suddenly, he had bought 28 Teslas Model 3 and that he had to pay a millionaire bill: in total, 1,404,000 euros for the 28 electric vehicles.
