  • Bonus: She runs to the media to tell the world what a dumbass victim she is.
  • I used to see scams like this all the time all over Northern California. Guy in a rented van pulls up with tons of speakers for sale... CHEAP! He even let's you try out a pair right there in the parking lot, then sells you a closed box claiming these speakers are demos and scratched up and you don't want these ones, etc, etc.

    For a mere $100, you get empty speaker cabinets with a cinderblock stuff in them!

    Yup. If I did something that dumb I don't think I'd tell everyone about it.
  • "If you turn it on the back, it actually looks like an Apple iPad," Freeman said

    If you wore eyeglasses with actual lenses in them, you would have clearly seen that it's duct tape. Stoopid biatch.

    That actually happened to me in Virgina many many years ago. They took off when I started opening the boxes before paying. I got nice a pair of Cerwin Vega speaker cases for free which was nice. The bonus was that I put cheap ass speakers in them, and my friends would tell me they can really hear the difference between the Cerwin Vegas and my other off brand speakers.
  • Does it at least get wifi?.
  • My god, look at the resolution on that display! It's like I'm looking into a mirror! Shut up and take my money!!!!
  • And the lesson here is don't buy stolen goods.

    If you haven't read it, I highly encourage you to take the time. You'll be happy you did.
  • So she's complaining that a person selling what would have to be stolen merchandise has ripped her off? Interesting.

    I love the Power Glove. It's so bad.

  • She seems like a nice person. I think she just learned a $200 lesson. And she didn't seem bitter.
  • The speaker thing is hilarious. El cheapo speakers are pretty cheaply purchased retail and still do 80% of the sound quality of the higher end speakers. The truck speakers are usually a little more expensive than the el cheapos, but do the same job. So you usually only get ripped off a little instead of for the full value, ya know? Could be worse, it could be the old brick in a box swithceroos that these people are pulling. There was a guy here in Knoxville with PSPs...someone would let you try their PSP for sale out, it would work just fine and be brand new, they'd back it back in the box for you, switch boxes, take your $100, and you'd later open it up to find a brick. Of course he used his own apartment as the meeting place so he only did it a few times before someone came back with a gun when the police wouldn't do it themselves.
  • She should reflect on her stupidness.
  • "Don't buy nothing on the streets from nobody," she said.

    English, muthafarker?
  • You have to know it's hot. It's clear who the victim is in this case, but which one is more despicable?

    I've had this happen to me a couple times in different cities- probably because I drive an obnoxious car, but w/e. My response, after they do their little spiel, is always the same: "I don't care how not stolen they are, I'm not interested."

    "What...they aren't stolen? The hell man, I'm just trying to move some inventory..."

    "Did you hear me? Do you understand English? I just said, "I don't care how "NOT STOLEN" they are, I'm not interested."

    "They aren't stolen! I've got a manifest right here..."

    "I'm calling the cops and telling them that someone is selling stolen stereo equipment at a gas station."

    ...and they speed away.
  • without even reading the article, i'm guessing there is a 99/100 percent chance she had a role in reelecting our president
  • The hell with stocks and bonds, if you want to make money, buy some mirrors and head to Texas!
  • I worked support for a company that had the same name as a type of tv made in East Europe. We would get calls often from people looking for tech support for the TVs, not noticing that on our website we had nothing remotely resembling TVs, and I heard often "I bought one of ya'lls Teevees from a roadside vendor".

    Who the fark is buying TVs from a roadside vendor? You buy peaches and corn from roadside vendors not TVs.

    /Several people wanted me to call Eastern Europe and talk to the TV tech support for them. I kindly told them to fark off and die.
