I lost my Apple Watch at Disney World – now I have a $40,000 credit card bill

A WOMAN has claimed that a thief managed to spend a whooping $40,000 on her Apple Watch during a ruined trip to Disney World.

The unidentified visitor dropped her special Hermès edition watch worth $1,300 / £1033 while on a ride.

She reportedly had several credit cards linked to it, including an American Express with unlimited credit.

The watch apparently got past a gap below the slow-moving The Seas with Nemo & Friends attraction on April 13.

It slipped off her wrist and fell through a grated floor.

She could see it but couldn't reach while the ride was moving.

No one turned the device in – and worse still, there were approximately $40,000 / £31,700 of fraudulent charges.

It's not clear whether the transactions went through or she managed to stop them in time.

The device should also not work unless it was on the woman's wrist or the person knows her passcode.
