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...
...actually, I could lie and say it was me, and not my girlfriend's brother and his mad motor racing mates.

So there I was, me and my mates after a good night's drinking, in the middle of a big city and we needed to get home. So we pile into a taxi and go our merry way. Halfway through the journey, and in the middle of nowhere, a mate of mine pipes up "Stop the car!" Thinking he was going to hurl we told him to keep it in, even though he's shaking his head and trying to tell us why he wanted the car to stop by creative staring.
Eventually, the guy the stops the cab and lets us out in the middle of countryside. Just as a kicking was about to be administered towards this friend for dropping us ten miles from anywhere in the middle of winter, he produced a big wad of rolled up notes. All used tenners and twenties totalling about two grand. It was obviously a drug-related drop and this mate had found the cash stuffed down the back of the car seat. He wanted the car stopped in the middle of nowhere so the naughty boys wouldn't trace us and "ask" for the money back. Split four (or five, I can't remember) ways, it made for a very profitable night!
We try to not to think about what happened to the taxi driver...

For some reason
I'm picturing a scene from a Guy Richie movie...

Good thinking to get out in the middle of nowhere!
