Default Scammed in a parking lot

As much as I would like to feel sorry for this guy, how can anyone be so dumb.

The guy that was scammed had to know that if this was true then the TVs were stolen so I don't feel a bit sorry for him. That is what you get for being greedy.

I agree, this sort've reminds me of those e-mails "from a person in a foregin country" who needs to put money in your account-it doesn't even "add up" to me but apparently people are taken in-and you know it is just pure greed.

I have to admit that I'm a sucker too. I hand over even more than that every April to a guy named "Sam." And he doesn't give me a TV either. I guess some of us never learn.

The guys name is "Uncle Sam", not George.
Just like it wasn't Bill or Ron or Jimmy.

That guy had to work at being stupid. Two trips to the bank because a cash transaction for $10k requires a lot of paper work.
