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?

Online Game Conning – & REVENGE! (aka 2 cons for the price of one)

Now if you go into a bookies, snooker hall or dodgy pub (I don’t by the way - ahem), there’s a distinct possibility that one of those ‘online roulette’ machines will be positioned therein. They claim to be part of a national network and their crappy low-res graphics thrill / bore you into parting with your hard cash.

It’s a con. Call it con number 1. I know the people that install them – they just chuck a cable into the ceiling boards and claim it’s the internet connection. These things are two-bit chunks of crap and the ‘online’ thing is just a ruse to make you believe they’re more secure than they are.

Ah well, Let’s call this next bit con number 2. I know somebody that has got hold of a machine, and the hack-codes, and they print off their own future-dated winning tickets and now trudge around such establishments happily cashing in their ‘winnings’. Not too bad a living really if you can be arsed.
