    You guys might be seeing a girl in a red bathing suit and an offer by "Sunny Co Clothing" stating "
    Anyone in the US who reposted an image of a model in a swimsuit and tagged Sunny Co would be sent a code to receive a $64.99 swimsuit for free, paying only shipping and handling." on your Instagram feed.

    This got viral and the owners got fucked up due to the massive response

    They deleted their account too.
    This might have a bad impact on the sales of people doing F+S what do you think?

    You have to be stupid to think they got fucked up.
    They're making bank. They are charging people $12 to have it delivered.

    Old sales trick. Up the Shipping+Handling fee and give something away "free"

    They changed usernames and obviously made a bank, by any chance if any one was following them can you drop the new @username ?

    They didn't, the account got banned. I already checked, the account is gone, they didn't change username.

    there is no way to know that for sure unless you were following them. If they did get banned then well that's to be expected
