Now, this is the kind of offer we have seen one too many times so far. We wish vendors would stop doing that because it is truly deceiving and not a nice way to attract buyers.

9. The painted shirt

This is how people risk getting busted for lying on social media for something truly insignificant. Why would this person lie about making this shirt together with his girlfriend?

Some people like to pretend their kids are smart but their attempts are sometimes busted by other people. In this case, that person was a family member.

21. The lecture

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how one person tried to fool everyone that they were trusted with giving their own students knowledge! Needless to say, nobody would allow a random student to lead a lecture. As it turned out, the person who claimed these things was not even present at the actual lecture.

22. The fast

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how one person tried to make themselves appear as a super human but it was so absurd that nobody could buy what they were saying. Nobody could survive under such terms.

23. The artist

Here is how one person was exposed for stealing someone else’s art and not doing something even remotely similar to it themselves. Stealing intellectual property is a huge no-no and we believe that taking the idea is good but stealing it is bad.

This long post is here to expose a rude person who had the audacity to go great lengths just to prove something that never happened. This person is surely an example of appalling behavior that should not be tolerated.

26. The agreement

Image Source: Reddit

Now, this is kind of sad and funny at the same time. This person was faking a conversation but they obviously forgot to change their accounts before adding the reply which was hilarious to see.

27. The other cheater

Image Source: Reddit

Well, there is no wonder this person got caught cheating because they had the not so brilliant idea of making a video on that matter. What were they thinking at all?

28. The advice

Image Source: Reddit

This is not the kind of advice you should take. This person thinks she is very clever for being able to shoplift like that but giving ideas for people to do the same is appaling.

29. The server

Image Source: Reddit

Here is one common way for restaurants to get a full score review on social media or different other websites. Managers often force their employees and even their families to add positive comments about the location. This is not a nice thing to do.

30. The virgin

Some people often change their minds on everything you could think of and that is kind of annoying. This person tried to deceive people on social media that a certain show was boring but she used to praise that same show.

34. The listing

35. The fake iPhone

This person ordered an iPhone but they got deceived. As you can see, there is a different logo in the back. The apple in the logo was supposed to be bitten of but you can see it is not! Peopel sell all kinds of fake products these days and that is a shame.
