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?

I can`t believe i`ve only just remembered!
This is one of my many tales of woe, but here goes:

About three years ago when i was all but 15 i`d managed to obtain a fair amount of cash (100 pounds i believe it was). I desperately wanted one of those new fangled iPod things (Yes, i know. I can`t stand them now). Would you believe it, i found this "Auction" Advertisement in the newspaper and lo and behold it was about 10 minutes walk from where i lived. It stated that it was selling over stocked iPods, hurrah thought i. I shall go and obtain one for myself and girlfriend at the time.

Oh how very wrong i was...

We arrived at the "Auction House" (read: Local Pub) to find alot of old, tattered boxes with "iPod" written on them and unfortunately this didn`t set off any warning bells. The auction starts, it`s so fast pace i can hardly keep up but by the end of it i was conned out of my 100 pounds, and my girlfriend too.

All we managed to get were some knives, a pen and a camera (Shitty.). Oh the shame...

Whats the lesson here folks? If it looks too good to be true, it usually is! Its just a shame it took that long for me to find out

Length? By the type of car he was driving, probably very small.
