Not sure where to put This or if someone started a thread, but guys and girls be careful. A fake instagram account is out there telling you you won something. Just messaged @JB and @GolferGal

Just report it.

Are we sure it’s not just a THPer running elaborate interference on club purchases to their significant other? “Wow, this is the 4th contest you’ve won this week”.....”just lucky I guess”

When I was married they all got shipped to work. Once home they just added to the General Golf clutter as long as I avoided any “pretty” headcovers. Then she’d notice. Started putting generic CPO headcovers on everything then, lol.

It’s little wonder that I’m not married anymore, lol.

I like how the message isn't even written in a way that is believable. Scammers are the worst

I know someone who I won't say who I know them for their own safety, but when the ps3 came out he told his wife he won it... now he wasn't lying because he "won" the ebay auction for it, but the implication of the win was it was free....
