This is a question Conned

Have you carried out a successful con? Perhaps you hustled a few quid off a stranger, or defrauded a multi-national company. Or have you been taken for the wide-eyed, naive rube that you are?

My first ever house with a bunch of mates when I was 18...

We hadn't signed individual agreements so, when I came to move out before the rest of them, THEY decided how much % of deposit I got back.

There was a bit of damage to the house in communal areas (None whatsoever in my room) all of which had been caused by them but was no more than 'wear & tear'.

So rather than giving me the £250 i was owed, £100 measly pounds made its way back into my account. They, needless to say, got back the FULL deposit when they moved out and they guy that moved in after me ended up making a profit.

(I had the last laugh as the landlord was a good mate of mine and ended up giving one of them a 'light' beating (which may have involved some nunchucks). He got me a crate of beer and gave me the remainder of the money I was owed, and proceeded to hassle them for what they now owed HIM.)
