if it’s too good to be true…

If you enter “goggle” instead of “google” in your online search bar, you’ll be directed to a page about a sweepstake. It’s a sweepstake, that you think is legit because it’s from goggle, I mean, google. But you don’t know it’s not goggle because you are so used to typing in google and seeing the colors of the logo and not really reading the words. (G-O-O-G-L-E)

So, once you see the sweepstakes, you get happy, very happy. The sweepstakes, after all, is for an ipad, an iphone, and a Walmart gift card for $1,000. You like the ipad idea, but because you’re practical, you go with the gift card. Yes. Click on “gift card.” And…open sesame? Not quite. It’s another survey.

Do you like green grass or brown bushes? You don’t know but you answer anyway because you want your gift card, and you’re sure you’ll get your gift card because, for Pete’s sakes, it’s Google.

But, it’s really Goggle. If you had your goggles on, you’d see that.

So, by the tenth survey, you realize something could be up. So you check the logo of Google that you thought you saw before you went down this rabbit hole of repeat surveys.

And then you see it, Goggle. Not goggle.

Oh, you say. Oh.

Clicking out in five, four, three, down, one.

STOP.

Have you been duped by Goggle.com? Please tell me I’m not the only one!!
