A cooling device that didn’t operate

There is so much fake information being circulated on the internet and especially on social media platforms.

It’s so bad that you no longer know what’s real or what’s fake.

For instance, my sibling sent me a story about a pet getting eaten by big ants, and turns out the story was nothing but fake news. So, we must always be careful about the information that we share because it could be that we are spreading information that could be untrue. Another thing that can be fake is advertisements. There are people who are willing to scam others for no reason at all. My mom was scammed by a company selling portable cooling systems, and as a result, ended up losing her money from the fake advertisement. She saw an ad for a portable cooling system that promised to cool any space down in less than 14 minutes. She purchased the portable cooling system thinking that it would work for her small enclosed patio, but unfortunately that was not the case. In fact, the component was so bad that after 4 minutes of use, it stopped cooling at all and would blow nothing but room temperature air in the patio. When I tried to contact the company for a refund, there was no client repair iphone number, just a text address that was given. After several texts with no reply, I gave up and my poor mom was left with an a/c unit that did nothing but blow hot air. Thankfully, she didn’t spend a lot of money for the unit, and she knows now not to buy anything she sees on random internet advertisements. A lesson she had to learn the hard way unfortunately.
