Although it’s 2017, 2016’s scams are still showing face. This woman became the latest Facebook victim when she bought what she thought to be a 55″ smart TV.

This unlucky consumer’s name is Tiara Chatman. While she figured she’d come up by buying from Facebook, Tiara found herself on the wrong side of technology.
According to Tiara, via Facebook, she thought she was getting a deal on a 55″ LG smart TV. Yet, she would soon learn there was nothing “smart” about the purchase.
Once she got home and unwrapped her television, Mother Nature was staring her in the face.
“I should’ve checked first.”
For whatever reason, Tiara didn’t check whether the wrapped package was, in fact, a television. In her defense, TVs are very thin nowadays. One could see how she might have assumed it was a television and trusted the sellers.
Yet, as many memes have already shown as 2017’s motto, trust is going to be hard to come by this year. Unfortunately, she had to experience this first-hand.
When Tiara Chatman unwrapped her “television” — for which she paid $550 — it was actually just a 55″ piece of plywood.
Understandably, she wanted to cry.
In case you can’t see the second image, it is provided below.
Along with Tiara, many people wonder and question why she didn’t bother to check such a purchase. And for $550 too?
Is This Fake?
As you dive into the comment section of this post, some people argue the situation’s authenticity.
However, Tiara assures that it’s a real scam, and she’s just letting people know what could happen to them if they’re not careful.
It’s true. People are getting more savvy with their scams. And just like it’s a brand new year — if you let them — they’ll treat you like you’re brand new.
