Chargeware is often tied to adult websites and aims to trick users into agreeing to vague terms and conditions. By doing so, their credit card gets overcharged, and it becomes tough to cancel the subscription. Using industry-specific jargon, this scam confuses non-technical readers and lures them into unfavourable agreements. The main idea here is to take advantage of users for financial gain by making the consequences of their agreement hard to grasp.
