Yep, had that happen twice in Wal-Mart the other night. Walked down an isle and before I got to the end I had spam on items in that isle.

5 isles later happened again. Turned off my phone. But someone is tracking your phone's and they are able to interact with them without us knowing it. Not cool.


Only here to annoy...
