We have seen our fair share of 'what you ordered versus what you got' experiences. 

But people still get caught up in the big online swindle...

Whoever this seller is, they are probably sitting in a small room somewhere feeling really proud of themselves for getting away with scamming people.

It doesn't ever mean it's right or acceptable, so we certainly feel for this guy who paid R4,500 for what he thought were Alexander McQueen sneakers.

Tweeps were anything but sympathetic with him, so we hope that teaches him. 

The silver lining is that he could possibly get a return for the item, as one person said a similar thing happened to them. 

We have to admit, we loved this comment from a guy who sells shoes online. He really took the opportunity to market his business.
