    It's a pretty long read, but worth it IMHO.

    If anyone wants the Cliff/Cole's notes...
    Someone wants to sell a laptop and red flags go off when the buyer wants to use an escrow site that he provided the link for. Tracking lead to a false site, which lead to the seller still sending a package.

    Nice story. [​IMG]

    The whole site is pretty funny but this story is a classic, with pictures to back it up. 419 Eater [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Warning: pretty long, but well worth it.
