This is a question Conned

swiftyisNOTevil writes, "I have recently become obsessed with the BBC Three show 'The Real Hustle' - personally, I think of it as a 'How To' show for aspiring con artists."

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?

this qotw might turn into a series of tirades from me
Not entirely sure if this was me being conned or just a cynical publicity stunt, but many many years ago in my youth, I spent an awful lot of money to get my hands on the STRICTLY LIMITED EDITION, ONE-OFF, ONLY X THOUSAND RELEASE, FOR OUR REAL FANS ONLY Decade of Aggression Double live album by Slayer.

About 6 months later it was re-released with another xx thousand run. Then again, and again. bah humbug, i was conned, cheated and annoyed by fook!

Story from a work mate.

Many years ago when on a lads holiday in a "clubbers paradise" somewhere he, while rather inebriated, bought a genuine rolex from some lookee lookee man.
A couple of hours later the strap had snapped and the glass broken, so this intrepid and by now steamingly drunk chap decided to go and have words with the lookee lookee man and get another watch.

After tramping around for a bit he found the man, flanked by two Uggs with scars, tattoos and foreheads you could ski down and began to argue the toss and demand a replacement.

Remarkably after a few minutes he a) got a new watch and b) didn't get his head kicked in.

Took him until he sobered up to realise the replacement watch had painted on hands though!!
