One of my friends named Aubrey is quite gullable.
She often buys items that look good on infomercials and they are usually gadgets that don’t work well.
She has bought bootleg DVD’s and she thinks that if something is on sale or if there is a discounted price that it must be good. She was recently looking to buy a window air conditioning unit for her apartment. I told her that I would go with her to the store so she could find a good quality window air conditioning unit. Aubrey agreed to that and my pal and I had plans to go to the store over the weekend. She called me a few days later to cancel our plans. Aubrey told me that she was on her computer and saw an ad for Heating and A/C products for sale. She clicked on the connect and it showed an address where she could pick up a window air conditioning unit for a unquestionably affordable price. Aubrey should have known in that moment that this was a red flag, however she decided to drive to the address to pick up the cheap window air conditioning unit. When she arrived, there was a man in a van selling the window air conditioning units. She paid for the window air conditioning unit and did not open the box to check what was inside. When she got home, there was no air conditioning unit in the box. It was filled with a bunch of random items that made it feel heavy. She drove back to the address, where the van was and no one was there. Aubrey learned her lesson and ended up buying a window air conditioning unit from a store.
