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?

Mowbli fun
A couple of interesting ones:

With my current mobile contract I get 1250 tx's 1000 free minutes, free gprs, and free calls sat-sun-mon - with a free nokia n95, and £180 cash back all for £20 a month. to get something like this, you have to ring the cancellations department when you want to renew- and tell them you want to go elsewhere, make up some obsurd deal that orange/vodafone/o2 etc have offered you and the one your current provider is offering is abit poo. 9 times out of 10 they will do anything to keep you on board!

another scam that me and a few friends tried was to invoice really huge companies (Shell, BT, Enron... well ok, not enron, they have no money). Not for particularly large amounts, but just make up a company name, and invoice them for "service charge" or something for £56.38 or relatively obscure, and if you choose the REALLY large companies they will pay no questions asked because they receive THOUSANDS of invoices.... It worked on about 4 companies if i remember.

And also, about the car-park 1... u will generally find that you will need 2 pay no matter what, so if you;ve been in town all day and you should be paying 80p an hour then go to the entrance get a new ticket, pay for just 1 hour and leave with that one. therefore saving you about £5 a day!
