If you have 20 minutes to read this you have to read it through, it's pretty long but only worth it if you get the whole story. The best part is that this guy had 3 people who were located where the scammer was to be sure the scam worked. He documents everything in great detail and includes his emails with the scammer. Enjoy!

I get such a kick out of the Windows key with the X through it and the apple key thing on there and the trash can on the "screen" where it says "This is Real" I wish they could have gotten a picture of this guy's reaction when he opened it up. LOL

LOLLLL this is the best scam ever!!!!!!!!

I have a bit of an off topic question though. A friend of mine from the usa is gonna be sending me an ibook sometime soon. I got her to buy it from there and send it here because macs are cheaper in the states. I'm in London, u.k. I didn't know I would have to pay tax on top of it. What should I do? Anyone got any ideas? cheers.

Evian, just tell your friend to put a very low value on it.

The lower you make the value the more risk you take if it gets lost, I would contact your post office and see what the actual value will cost you. It may not be that bad

have her ship it via UPS to you she can insure it for the full retal replacement value and when she sends it to you she can send it as a gift so the decalred value can be like 500 dollars. you in college if so teller to send it as a gift for college.
