    http://www.glasses-b2c.com/oakley-crankcase-sunglass-c-7/oakley-crankcase-sunglass-4005-p-151.html

    Although those are not Oakley Crankcase sunglasses but I checked the site out thoroughly before I bought anything and it doesn't seem like there's anything negative posted about it. Apparently it's a Chinese owned site based in the U.S. which would explain why their site is in such disarray in regard to models.

    Also they sell Oakley's regularly for $165.00 whatever the model and I found a guide which explained how to tell fake from real and it said if the glasses do not come with a case and pouch even warranty papers like on the main site that doesn't really mean they are fake but of course the reverse is also true.

    Been reading up about whether the Oakley's I got are fake or not and apparently fake Oakley's do not have raised logos, instead having the Oakley "O" and words printed on instead of being raised whether they are vintage Oakley's or newer ones. Anyway we'll see when I get them. I'll be sure to check them thoroughly.

    85% discount on every set in the website, Highly suspicious mate.. (Personally would not of touched that website at all) when the actual Oakley store does not have a discount like that.

    I would keep a very close eye on you chosen method of payment for a while just to be safe..

    Yup, I was thinking the same thing. Keeping a close eye on my credit card transactions, but since it's a visa debit and I have two accounts, one that I use to buy things online and one where I keep my money, I should be safe. If the card is compromised I'll get it replaced. (I transfer the amount I want to spend to the other account when I want to buy something precisely for situations like these, the balance is practically zero normally)

    A little update, I have decided to cancel the credit card I used and get a new one sent out to me in a week's time, and since this site doesn't have an option to cancel your order (which apparently is a violation) I'll be getting my money back from the bank.

    Smart. I do it the same way... only it is a $500 debit card. Although I usually put some credit on there.

    Lol, thanks. Yeah I know, I guess even the smartest people can be super dumb sometimes. (after avoiding all those stupid email links and fake league of legend free riot points links)

    Good :)

    It's just a thing "If sounds (Or appears) to be to good an offer, then it usually is"

    My mother, who's 85 now, was remarried two years ago this coming Valentine's Day. This is the 3rd marriage for the both of them. She was telling me yesterday just how fortunate the both of them have been to have had good spouses. They both have survived the death of their previous ones.

    Well, my new step-dad spent hours upon hours...as well as some money...putting together a USA State Series Quarter Collection. This series started in 1999 and completed in 2009. At lunch, he told me that he went to the bank many times over the past few months and ordered rolls of quarters just in order to be able to locate all the specific quarters that were needed to complete the collection. He did this, not just for me, but for my brother and two sisters, as well. To give some perspective on just what a task this was, as well as how much it may have cost, he told me that he went through EIGHT rolls one time before finding even ONE of the quarters needed for the collection. One roll here is worth $10.00 USD!

    The end result is this....

    You know I have a coin collection of my own and sometimes getting a whole series gives you a great feeling inside. That's a wonderful gift right there.

    Oh my, that States Quarter's collection is awesome - I have the foldout myself in a closet somewhere. Nice one about the car too Jason.

    Cool Blue Sunglasses!

    Hey all, still alive, still raising a family and working my tail off, but enjoying it.

    Anyway, I purchased a second Xbox 360 for my wife and kids to use in the family room - the first one (two years ago) is my wife's - in the bedroom.

    Got my 15 year old a Mass Effect hoodie and my 14 year old daughter some nice boots among other things.

    For my wife, some Knowing perfume and an Estee Lauder kit - things they all wanted.

    I got a couple pairs of Levis, had to order online 'cause I'm too small to find them in the stores - 28" waist and all...

    Oh, and finally retired my eight (?) year old PC Power Silencer 610 for a Rosewill Capstone 750.

    Hope y'all have a nice 2015!
