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?

Not Me...
But an old neighbour used to go to a computer fair nearly every Sunday in Stratford East London.
There is always a lot of people there, selling lots of computer parts dirt cheap.
Well one day he goes there in search of a cheap laptop. After walking out dissapointed at not finding onehe walks out of the fsir to find a couple of stalls setup outside. Being a nice sunny day he thought there was nothing wrong with this, and was even more delighted to see they had a cheap laptop for about £200.
After seeing it working he coughed up the cash for it while one of the sellers ought out a pre-wraped box. My neigbour goes back to the car and opens the box of his new purchase to find 2, 2 litre bottles of Dr. Pepper (he doesn't even like it).
My neighbour fuming at being conned like this marches back to the stall, we'll were the stall was to find the guys had done a runner.
Needless to say he learnt a lesson that day, and never told the wife about his expensive purchase of Dr. Pepper.
