A woman who wanted to get rid of a few pairs of old high heels turned to Facebook Marketplace in a bid to sell them and recoup some of her cash.
After posting a few adverts online, she soon began to receive messages from guys with requests which made her suspicious.
In response to a post for a £15 pair of nude heels, one man sent her a message to say: "Hi. Thinking of getting these for my girlfriend. Would it be possible to see a pic of them on though."
A similar request was sent about a pair of black stilettos, with another asking: "Hi I was wondering if it was possible to [see] some more photos of the heels?
"I am looking to get some for Valentine's Day. So would it be possible to see what they look like on and full view? Thanks."
Believing the men had absolutely no intention of making a purchase, she obliged with a photo of the shoes being worn – only she wasn't the one to model them.
Posting on Reddit, she wrote: "When I'm selling my high heels on Marketplace, this is how I deal with dudes that pretend to want to buy my shoes to try and get some free w*** bank material. This girl wasn't born yesterday."
After attempting to rope her boyfriend in, they found his feet were too big.
Luckily, her dog's dainty feet didn't have the same problem and he happily stepped in to lend a helping paw.
She replied with pictures of her adorable doggo showing off his new kicks, and, oddly enough, it all went very quiet.
"My dog is always happy to help," she told Bored Panda. "He wouldn’t stand there and let me take a quick snap if he didn't want to.
"I first encountered guys messaging me for photos of me wearing the shoes I was selling when I used eBay.
"I did oblige in the beginning as I didn’t realise it wasn’t innocent, but as soon as I did send a photo of them being worn, the requests would get bolder, asking me to wear stockings, asking if the shoes smelled, etc."
Others were huge fans of her ingenious replies, with one commenting: "Love this so much. This is brilliant!"
A second suggested: "Maybe you should get a better camera. That resolution looks a little ruff."
Another said: "What a good doggy for helping their mommy."
