    Scammers almost got me

    whew i was one click away

    Fagbook had a couple ads for pit viper sunglasses half off

    me, being the cheap bastard that i am, thinks to myself hell yeah!

    click the link, looks like pit vipers retro style website, and yep everything is on sale

    cool, browse thru and start to notice they dont have all the models they used to have, oh well firesale, things change, whatever

    add two things to the cart, enter my info, place order, separate screen appears and says "please enter your one time credit card code"

    i get a legit text from my credit card company with the code, (thinking to myself) okay this has happened before, but why now?

    inspect the page a bit more and theres an abreviation followed by 2,765.00

    no dollar sign, but very clearly a dollar amount in my mind

    i noped the fawk outa there

    im an idiot cant believe i even went that far, fawk you fagbook for even showing me scams and fawk me for being a homer



    anyways any nigerian princes here that want to give me there fortune?

    My wife fell for that shit with Oakleys. Luckily They only charged her for the crappy sunglasses. The fakest Oakley's I have ever seen did arrive in the mail.

          I bought a couple pairs of Pit Vipers off ebay before the rona hit. They were ~$35 each and appear legit, they did take forever on the slow boat though.

              I have never worn sunglasses in my life.

              I hate that raccoon.

              FB sucks.

                I’ve always been leery of those ads on Facebook. My wife will tell me she buys stuff and I immediately ask if it’s legit. Luckily she thoroughly checks everything before ordering.

                  I had to google Pit Viper sunglasses.

                  People pay for those?

                  Every time I have seen anyone wearing them, I assumed they were being paid because no one would put those on otherwise.

                  When I was in the Army they issued BCG's (Birth Control Glasses) They were named as such because there was no way you would ever get laid wearing them. Those glasses (Pit Viper) took that to the extreme.

                  I mean those are the glasses your wife buys you, when she doesn't trust you, because she KNOWS no female would come within a mile of you with those things on your face.

                          If you were ever ready to spend more than $25 for sunglasses, you need to go back to fagbook and never come back.

                            Those glasses are what Oakley would produce after Vertical Scope took over.

                            They make Randy Savage say "OOOO NOOOO"

                              Never heard of them either so I looked them up.

                              Probably the gheyest looking things I have ever seen.

                              I wouldn't buy those for 100% off and would allow my retinas to burn out of my skull before I put those ghey things on this pristine body!
