I'm always on Facebook Marketplace checking out what's for sale in our area, whether it be plants, furniture, clothing, etc. But this morning when I saw this ad, I was like, hmmmm...

The description I would type out; but I'm sorry. It's so ridiculous I just can't bear to read it and retype it for you.  If you click on the Seller information, you'll learn that DEAN SMITH, has about 10 sexy friends, no information about him, and he is really interested in raising money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.  Hmmm....Seems like he's really into getting money and then maybe distributing it himself. He also appears to be a military guy. Sure thing dude.

Well...If you want to buy these amazing purple strawberries, they are only $1 with $11 for shipping AND there are NO returns.


There ARE such things as purple strawberries, but they are not bright purple. They are more of a deep burgundy. No matter how much you wish the purple strawberries were a real thing, you must know that the beautiful purple berries featured on his page, are not real. Please don't fall for this scam.
