12+ People Who Did Not Get What They Were Hoping For

In the digital era, it’s becoming increasingly easier to buy anything you want online. There are countless online stores and sites where you can get almost anything you want for an extremely cheap price.

Still, online shopping, especially when it’s cheap, is often too good to be true. You could order one thing, and get something completely different, which is why it’s always advised to thoroughly do your research and go through the reviews.

However, it’s not only the products you get online that can be deceiving – it almost never happens that a product is the same as it’s advertised in the packaging. But some are especially off – as in, horrendously and hilariously wrong!

So, scroll down to see a list of products that prove that advertising can be really tricky.
