IMPORTANT ......... EVERYONE PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING is having some Paypal integration issues I'm struggling to resolve.  My site works as it always has, just the payment part is messed up.  Your patience is appreciated.  Currently, you will not be able to place your order and pay through the site using Credit Cards or the PAYPAL button in your cart checkout.  There is a way around this issue however.  Instead, please place your order and choose the CHECK OUT WITH US  button option, then choose the Pay by CHECK button. This will place your order on the site.  I will then send you a PAYPAL MONEY REQUEST, within a maximum of 2 days, to the email you provided with your order so you can pay your invoice with your chosen payment method and receive your order.  If you don't receive the request, feel free to contact me.  I know it's a little strange, but thats what I'm stuck with for now.  If you have any questions or need to speak with me for reassurance feel free to call or text 315 436-6560 or email  Thelyeguy is not going anywhere.  I will continue to supply you with the same, top quality caustics I have been selling for the past 14 years.  Thank you all so much for your patience as I sort through the craziness........

NEW UPDATE:  It seems the Checkout with Paypal button on your CART page has decided to work intermittantly.  Give it a try, if it doesnt work, place your order using the CHECK OUT WITH US and then the CHECK button as described above.  Sorry for all the craziness.  Your patience is appreciated.

UPDATE: We are now pushing the new site lauch to June.  It's been difficult finding site creators that do what this 15 year old site was able to do. Now, the delay is on me.  The site is ready, I just have to learn how to use it and   Unfortunately, our customer list will not transfer over, so you will be required to create a new profile.  Thank you all for your patience.  TheLyeGuy is not going anywhere, we're just going through some growing pains.  Your loyalty and business is appreciated more than you'll ever know.

TheLyeGuy apologizes for any inconvenience.
