Who knew Furbys—a toy craze from the late '90s—were still in demand? Apparently the legend lives on in Thailand, where the electronic robot has become a big hit among kids and adults.
In a bizarre turn of events, a 16-year-old girl posted a Furby ad on Instagram that led more than 60 victims to complain about getting scammed. The victims claimed they were conned out of around 6 million baht, or $200,000, reports the AP. They never received the gifts and eventually police arrested a Thai woman in connection with the scam.
