Grrrr, right. about an hour or 2 ago, i was sitting down at the computer listening to music and ****, when there is a knock at the door. so i get up and answered it, and there is this man standing at the door. he grunts and gives me a piece of card which basically said his name (and the fact hes from Pland) and the fact he is partially deaf and was selling some drawings to pay for and operation he is having. im like hmmmmm, this is rather odd. but anyway i ask him to see his drawings, so he grunts nods and shows me them, i go and stand next to him to get a better look (i was standing opposite him). i look, while im standing there a few things cross my mind, a quick thought of, if hes deaf, how can he understand me, then i thought he must be lip reading me. so i continue looking. another thing, none of his pictures are signed, and a chief thing, they are copies, not originals.

i ask him how much they are and he "draws" a number on the wood of my door. im still like hmmmm, looking through his drawings. eventually im like, oh, thats a nice pic, ill buy that one. so i get my money and pay him for it. i shake his hand and he has this smug little smile like hes saying, i cant believe that worked.

an hour later my mum cames home and asks me where the picture came from, so i told her the above story. she told me it was a scam, i was like oh ****, ive just been scammed. how could i be soooo stupid?!!!

the worst fact is, his pic cost me 8 ****ing quid!!!

I've bought a picture off someone at the door...

But unlike this story it was an original drawing, it was signed, it was ****ing amazing, and he didn't act like he was deaf.

You were happy to pay that much for a picture you like before, just cos the guy wasn't deaf doesn't mean the picture looks any worse

Sucker. Never buy anything from someones who's knocking on your door.

OR from an apparently deaf person
#13
In my area some people were doing that, and as they showed the pictures they tried to look inside the house to see if there was something valuable to steal.

Why in the world did you buy a picture?

Lol, did it not occur to you it was a scam when he understood everything you said? And I wouldn't trust a lip-reading door-to-door salesman if he was lip-reading.

£8 is quality. Get 8 Cans od beer, two packs of strings and 6 picks, exchange it for 8000 pennies, get fat on chocolate, buy a CD, or even purchase a house in Afghanistan. Quality money that is.

How do you know it's a scam? How did your mum know?


well, as i said, all the little things:

1. if he was deaf, how could he understand me?
2. how come his pictures were copies?
3. how come none of the pictures didnt have signatures?

and my mum told me that this is the 3rd one that has been round in the past 10 yrs we've lived there all doing roughly the same thing.

ah well, at least i got a nice picture out of it

if you got a picture you like, it wasn't a scam. you just bought a picture off a guy who came to your front door. if he was claiming it was a picasso but really he drew it at home with crayons and you bought it believing that it was genuine, THEN you got scammed.

anyway, cool story hansel.
