So I was looking around on Craigslist and I came across a listing of a P-bass that clearly had "Affinity Series" marked on the headstock. Here's what's funny: the person wants 400 out of it because apparently they paid over $700. What da fook? I'm interested in hearing what you guys have seen

My brother (who is not a nerd in the least, and is far far away from somebody you would picture playing fantasy MMO games) used to be really into World of Warcraft. He used to wrap skinning knives and mail them to random people he saw walking around and COD them for a couple gold so they could open it. He used to ninja loot like a bastard. And he would tell people that he could craft expensive things that he really couldnt, and people would trade him materials and he would just sign off and sell them later. Although, these werent really "attempts"- he had a high success rate

in 4th grade I made counterfeit yugioh cards by printing them out and gluing several pieces of paper to get the adequate thickness. I sold a bunch ($100 worth) but was eventually caught when someone told my teacher.

Just last week I got an email from someone I've never heard of in my life saying he was a refugee who needed money to go back to his country and see his family (great sop story, i crie evry tiem). He wanted $5000 and for me to just email him my credit card information, promising he'd "pay me back" (seems legit).
That was hands down the most pathetic scam attempt I've ever seen, you couldn't fool a ****ing sack of rocks with a half assed story like that.

Or the classics:
Scammer: Hi we have detected a problem with your computer.
Me (playing along for shits n giggles): Which one? We have about 6.
Scammer: Umm... *hangs up*

and
Scammer: Hi this is Penut Buttajah from Telstra blah blaah blah
I'm with Optus...

I used to get those calls all of the time, told them I didn't own a computer and they were like "Oh.. Ok, bye." and hung up.

My favorite ones are when people try to sell early LP Classics as 'original 1960 bursts' because they say 1960 on the pickguard.

Was walking near a lake in Madrid a few weeks back, and a girl came up to my brother and told him that day was the birthday of one of her friends, and she was hoping my brother had a phone with an internet connection so she could get in touch. My brother was like 'lol no', and the girl walked off. We started walking by the lake, but she was walking way faster, and we saw her walk around the entire lake, just to get back to the same point (it was a crowded point) and try again with someone else. She had even put on another jacket so people wouldn't get suspicious of the same girl walking by the same point over and over again.

To be honest, if I was alone I'd probably have given her my phone just for being a qt.

my mom has gotten that call a couple of times.

when my roommates & i were trying to rent a house back in college we got the "i'm on a mission in africa right now mail me a cheque & i'll send you the key (you can trust me because i love god)" scam.

Someone tried to scam me out of my Ibanez I have on CL...textbook "I'll give you a check over the asking price and we'll set up shipping blah blah blah, I am quite pleased with this product."

Nah, bro. Not today.

Also, this -> http://easttexas.craigslist.org/msd/4956834988.html has been on my local CL forever. I think they finally gave up. They started at like $500 and sloooowly made their way down.

The ones were they call you and record your voice then later call a relate of your telling you to paya ransom to get your "relative" they 've "kidnapped" back(they play the recorded voice in the background to fool you). Kinda clever but not really when the person they have the voice recorded is not screaming for help. It also helps if you call the person whose voice you heard just tells you they got a random ass call about winning 1000$ if they could scream "help me with all this money!"

I've never had that problem until this week and it's only on this one guitar. I'm pretty sure I just got another reply for the Ibby last night that's fake. I'm 50/50 on it. All they're doing is phishing for your email address.

Pretty much the worst scam ever. Good one, though!

i traded my holographic Gaia the Dragon Champion for a Kuriboh when i was into Yu Gi Oh as a kid.

still bothers the hell out of me how dumb i was. that shit was worth something back then, too.

there was this one time i was looking at porn when i was around 12 and i got this pop-up that said something along the lines of "You have performed an illegal action. Please click here to avoid prosecution."

at least i wasn't gullible enough to buy that bullshit.

The time when I was in middle school and the kids were desperate for some cannabis, My friend sold a small bag of field grass/weeds(you know what I mean) for 10 bucks.
the funny part is the kid who bought it actually ingested some of it and a couple hours later claimed he was higher than jesus! we played along until the next day and then broke the news to him.
