Online shopping is great! Who would've thought that you could buy new pants and even order all of your groceries without leaving the comfort of your couch? Alas, the great online shopping is sometimes a game of chance, and these poor people got the worse end with these shopping fails.

No matter how many cautionary tales people read about scam sites, Chinese knockoff brands, counterfeit goods, and neglected fine print, they still get tempted by discount prices on shopping sites and race to the checkout in a fury of clicks. Though shipping mishaps do happen, especially when packages are moving internationally, it's tough to imagine how postal workers let some of these epic fails to slide.

We want to hear about your online shopping site nightmare, so show us what you thought you ordered, and what you actually ended up with. Also, check out our first round of unhappy customers here.
