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?

My fat friend Ben....
works part time at the local Tesco's. Many a time he's let my mum have a £70 food shop for about £40 by not scanning items, which I always buy him a couple of pints for.

However, he actually conned me the other day.

He was working on the Express Checkout (10 items max) so I got into the queue with my can of coke and my dairylea dunker, not so I could get them on the cheap, I just wanted to say hello, etc.

Anyway, the combined cost of these items was 87p, Ben puts them through as miscellaneous items, so doesn't scan them and says, "There you go mate, £1."

"But..but, that's more expensive than what it actually comes to", says I.

"Erm, just give me the £1, the queues too big".

So my fat mate Ben stole 13p from me, and still hasn't given it back.
