A social media campaign by Sacramento area’s Sunny Co Clothing for a free bathing suit has taken over the internet.
The post promises that if you re-post and tag the photo you will get a code for a free bathing suit. The only catch is that you’ll have to pay shipping and handling.
And as of publication, there appear to be tens of thousands of users that have shared the post and are waiting on their codes.
From a scroll through the comments, a lot of people think this is a scam and it remains to be seen what the actual cost of the ‘free’ suit will be after shipping and handling.
There may be s sea of red bathing suits dotting the beaches this summer.
