    I was kind of giving my house a face lift ; new tiles, new paint, just aesthetic stuff and I was drinking pretty heavily. I sat down to watch some TV and saw the commercials for the Point 'n Paint. It looked like it could actually save me some time, so I bought the main kit along with all the extras for about $100. While it "worked" it was pretty much junk that I could have bought at Harbor Freight for about $5.

    Haha I bought a bag of that shit before I knew what it was, because it was on sale. I drove an hour to get it too, was so damn disappointed.

    I'm embarrassed to admit this but I actually believed a stranger was doing a favor/cool deed and giving me the leftovers of their stash they were trying to sell, and all I had to pay was shipping in handling. This was a person that had been in the FB group for over a year and constantly tried to get me to buy from them and they said they were having a "going out of business" sale I passed for the longest time but finally they were like "I only have x, X, and X left. I was gonna sell it for X dollars but I'm tired of messing with it, if you can just pay the shipping and handling its yours, I'm ready to be done with it"

    Bought tickets to a local metal show off their Facebook page that turned out to be fake. They were like 30 bucks each, I sent a message out on the page figuring I’d buy someone’s ticket who didn’t need it anymore (show was sold out). Transferred the money then they blocked me.

    There was quite a bit of back and forth, they sent me photos of fake ticket receipts and everything, they earned my money ha ha
