Beware of "free" GATTACA Sunglasses!

The "free" GATTACA sunglasses ( that are advertised in so-called "high-end magazines" are a scam. The sunglasses are of pitifully poor quality, made from cheap plastic and utterly useless. They have been in this business of fraud for over 5 years - do they sell at regular retail price at all, I wonder?

Get ready for the sucker catagory.
I got some can I say this.... they are like looking through very dirty glass. The plastic isn't worth the few cents it costs them to make them. Shipping/handling...yea! right! Welcome to the club!
