We should be Looking for the original source of the advert. Could be made up nonsense. It certainly looks like it.

Why isn’t anyone questioning things anymore?

It’s not just this thread, it’s happening in lots of others. What’s happening people?

I couldn't believe all the comments on Twitter from people who believed that rubbish. When I was 5 years old, my parent told me I had to poke air holes in the box I carried my frogs in or they would suffocate. There were no air holes in those boxes, and of course many other things, like sex traffickers are going to keep a low profile, not run public ads of how they ship kids in cardboard boxes with no holes in them.

Fake advert aside, I don't really buy wayfair's explanation that 14,000 is just what a high end cabinet sells for.

...nothing is going to rejuvenate them better than a week of adrenachrome foam face masks.


The only reason you think that is because you've never sucked the stem cells from someone's spine with a 24kt gold straw.


I laughed. That’s dark. Super dark. I’ve got a pretty dark sense of humor, but you win.

Star for you.

Not the greatest debunk I ever read. As I said in my previous post, "sex traffickers are going to keep a low profile", but "Fake advert aside, I don't really buy wayfair's explanation that 14,000 is just what a high end cabinet sells for". So I already made the same point as Snopes that thinking child traffickers would use such a high profile method does seem so absurd as to not make sense.

But, that doesn't really answer the question about the ridiculously overpriced items. If Wayfair had said it was an accidental pricing error that might be plausible, but I can't buy the pricing was legitimate as they claimed, and Snopes found an even worse example, this $99 shower curtain selling for $9999 with your name on it, is Wayfair going to claim that's a legitimate price too? Snopes has no answer, the link currently says:

"We reached out to Wayfair for more information about the expensive pillows and shower curtains, but have yet to receive a response." What can Wayfair possibly say to explain this?



So while I agree with Snopes that the child trafficking conspiracy is too weird to be true, there must be some explanation for the overpriced items, and Wayfair's claim they are valid prices is awfully hard to believe. What's the real reason? I have no idea, so it's an interesting story even if it's not about child trafficking. The $9999 shower curtain is personalized, but you'd really be getting ripped off if you paid another $99 for personalization, so even $200 would be a rip-off.

Oh thank god! For a second, there, I thought there might be a real investigation.

Hey everybody! Snopes is here to set the record straight! Guess we’ll be seeing this thread in the hoax bin soon.

Definition of Waif = a missing or abandoned child.
Definition of Fare = a price you pay for a person to go from A to B.

They put it in plain site.

They had baby albums priced at $16,000 also. And pillows for $10,000.

All with girl names.

Their spokeswoman said it was a "glitch" on Twitter.

This was also on their website earlier (may still be).
prntscr.com...
"If you're looking for a place to buy kids and babies online..."

I am buying a put option against them on Monday for sure. Their stock is going to tank.


No need to even do research or anything these days, they just outright say it.

Coz that’s totally believable.

To be fair, I work for an online retailer and pricing mistakes happen quite often (as well as mistakes with the header title, dimensions, weight etc etc). The stock items are usually uploaded and re-uploaded to the database in bulk from an excel file and if the data in that file gets skewed somehow and is missed, then the items "go live" with the mistakes in place and probably won't be changed until someone (usually a customer) points it out.

How often does your merch have names of missing kids and your company issues a statement saying no it's industrial grade that's why this chair named Mariah is 14k.

They made a mistake saying the pricing is correct instead of it was a publishing error they happen.
Anyone who knows anything knows an "industrial cabinet" will not be over 2000 for the best.

You can pretty much type your own name in there and get stuff that matches it, they aren't selling missing kids on Waif-fare.

ok but why are they selling files.abovetopsecret.com... 2 shower curtains that are basically identical 1 is 99 bucks and the other is 9999 bucks no one in their right mind would order the one for $9999.99 unless they are in the know what;s really going on......I am not saying child sex trafficking...... money laundering comes to mind......and wayfair sets the prices and there is an option to put out of stock.......something is not right.......I sent the shower curtain pics to snopes and asked them to follow up...can't be explained away like the cabinets, and that was not a very good explanantion

Pricing mistakes happen, that's understandable. What's not understandable is how Wayfair can put out an official statement saying the way too high price was correct. If that was a mistake it's not understandable, it's crazy. They were basically being asked why is the price insane and they say its not insane, it's correct. Now they not only have an insane price, but an insane answer about why the price is insane.

Those shower curtain pics came from the Snopes article! which said they already asked Wayfair about them, and have not received any reply so far.
