It sounds like a gag gift sold at a roadside souvenir shop from the ’70s, yet it’s a faux-medical scam being done to less savvy online shoppers who are too embarrassed to file a police report. Well, most men would be too embarrassed, but not all men. At least one guy marched down to a Public Service and Complaint Bureau and reported that he bought a “Penis Enlargement Device” online and received a magnifying glass along with an instruction sheet touting only one rule: “Do not use in sunlight.“
We see what you did there.
This example of truth in advertising comes from Malaysia, where a man identified only as “Ong” paid 450 Ringgit ($140) for the wondrous tool of enlargement. He’s unlikely to get his money back, considering the seller’s identity is unknown and the item purchased is, technically speaking, what was advertised.
