I saw one of these free watch ads on Instagram today, it brought me to this site https://tropikwatches.com/collections/f ... ime?page=2

I am an honest idiot and was nearly convinced but they had a McAffee logo in the page footer and the "countdown to end of discount" timers reset to a totally new time each time the page refreshed

The marketing copy and mission statement and "Is this a scam?" essay are such an effective placebo
