    Default Scam on Instagram

    If you see Salomon or The North Face being sold at deep discount in ads on Instagram, don't buy. It's a scam. The ad takes you to a fake website. I fell for it and had to deactivate my card.

    Wow. Hopefully you realized the issue before any major harm happened.

    Just love being outside, not sure why. 765 AT miles done (2014-2018), many more to go.

    You should notify North Face. They would be most interested, Iím sure!!

    I notified The North Face and Instagram. There were a number of these ads for both Salomon and TNF.

    I have seen many adds on social media sites and tend to have thought they were scams.
    I seen adds for not just hiking but also for brooks and other shoe manufacturing schemes as well.

    Instagram ads appeared in August of this year. While I was in Colorado.

    So does that mean I am NOT going to get my $32 North Face down jacket?
