If you scrolled Instagram for 10 minutes or listened to Donald Trump speak for 10 seconds, you’d make the astonishing discovery that humans lie all the time.
Whether it’s for personal gain or to avoid hurting someone, lying is an undeniably human trait.
Online retailers, for instance, have been known to exaggerate claims to market their products to customers.

Nothing can beat the claims of this Carousell seller, though.
Cheap Luxury Masks on Carousell
Face masks are all the rage right now, not because they look good or anything, but because they prevent you from contracting the deadly coronavirus.
But everyone’s wearing the same thing, and you hate blending in.
You want to be different.
You want to stand out.
So you visit Carousell, the online marketplace where no face mask scam has ever occurred, and you find this little gem:
Woah, an LV mask? For the princely sum of $20? Is this the real life?
You and I can tell that this “LV” mask is clearly a fake, of course. But what’s especially upsetting isn’t this seller’s intention to dupe customers but that they put such little effort into their deceit.
Heck, even I can do better than that.

Here’s what an LV mask actually looks like:
The same seller also put up this black “Chanel” mask for sale, a luxury face mask that will only set you back $18.
If you’re wondering why the packaging of this “Chanel” mask looks so familiar, it’s because it appears to be the exact same packaging that our free resuable masks came in:
Did this seller simply take this free reusable mask given to them by the government, slap a “Chanel” label on it, and expect us to believe it’s an authentic product?
Yes, the answer is yes.
“All Authentic Items”
What’s amusing is that the retailer claims her products are “all authentic items”.
The seller has been on Carousell for four years and has a rating of 4.7.
I guess her LV and Chanel masks are a big hit?
Netizens Not Convinced
Shockingly, some netizens weren’t convinced about the products’ authenticity.
Face Mask Scams
If you read our articles every day, you’re probably aware that many people are trying to profit from this surge in demand for face masks.
Like that man who scammed his victim out of $175,000 on Carousell in a sale involving face masks.
Or that retailer who continued to sell masks at high prices despite government intervention.
Always be wary when purchasing face masks online; make sure your seller is reputable and never purchase large quantities unless you’re certain the seller is trustworthy.
As for fake luxury masks, well, if you’ve fallen for those, you have other things to be concerned about.
