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?

Free Laptop
At the last company I worked for, one of the directors decided that he didn't want to come into work anymore, and being the entire marketing division of the company, he left us with no money in the bank and no work coming in, so the company had to shut down, still owing me the best part of 3 grand. Well, the director who walked out had previously lent me a laptop which I started getting lots of emails about, since the fucker owed me 3 grand that I wasn't going to see (the company went insolvent) I wasn't exactly happy about returning the laptop.

After a few weeks I receive a letter that at first glance looks like it's from a solicitor's office, worded in that convoluted language that the legal profession favours. But as I read through I get more suspicious, my old boss is threatening to get his solicitors on me if I don't send his laptop back to him. I get to thinking - He only owns this laptop because it was a temporary replacement that he never returned to PC World. He's in illegal posession of the damn thing anyway! So I send an email back telling him not to threaten me, that I'll keep the laptop as severance pay. I also threw away my keys for the office which he needed me to send back otherwise the landlord wouldn't release to him the cheque for the office furniture which had been sold in his absence.

Fat cunt, I can just see the look on his face now as he realised his pathetic attempts failed...

sounds more like a $3000 laptop rather than a free one.
