    Default Gift Rocket: Buyer Beware

    I'm not sure who these guys are, but we have no agreement with any third-party source authorized to process Gift Card business on our behalf:

    http://www.giftrocket.com/gift-card/tasty-vapor-oakland

    So, just a heads up, if you're looking to purchase Tasty Vapor gift cards for the holidays, get them DIRECTLY from our website.

    It doesn't look like they are doing a "gift card," as such, so it doesn't appear fraudulent. If one purchases this thing (for a fee), the buyer only "suggests" the business (e.g. TV) to spend it on, but they get the actual gift in the form of a credit to their credit card, PayPal transfer, check, or bank transfer. It still sounds silly to me. I mean, why pay a $10 fee when you can just send your friend a check or free PayPal transfer?

    Or you could just buy one of the credit gift cards for less that they sell everywhere.

    Since Tasty Vapor wasn't solicited to participate in this little program, I have to assume that there is something fishy going on. Perhaps it's a wonderful service for customers, but I imagine ANY intelligent business owner that wasn't asked if they would like to participate, would be suspicious.
