When this man from Malaysia went online to order a device to make his manhood a little larger, he was expecting something pretty special for his £100. When the parcel arrived he opened it to find a magnifying glass inside.
To add insult to injury, the magnifying glass came with a warning not to use in direct sunlight.
Mr Seri Michael Chong, the chairman of the Malaysia customer complaints bureau told The Star newspaper.
‘As you can imagine, he is feeling rather disgruntled,’ said Mr Chong.
The deflated man has not said who he ordered the device from as he was clearly very embarrassed. On a more serious note, these scams do go on in different forms each day and both men and women are equally vulnerable. If it is something to help treat something the customer may find embarrassing, the chances are that they will not make to much of a fuss if they are not happy with the product or service.
Lawyer Alex Kok said that unsatisfied customers who wished to sue online criminals would find it difficult to do so due to the dubious nature of the business.
‘It is especially hard if there is no proof of purchase, such as receipts.
‘We wouldn’t know who to sue or where and how to sue them,’ he told the paper.
