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?

There's a really really easy method of conning at the Pic n Mix counters.

Choose a cinema where the pic n mix has something blocking it from the till's line-of-sight.

Go in with your friend, and slightly fill a bag, go for about £1.50 worth of sweets. Go to the till (alone!) and pay. Then, walk back to your friend and fill a much larger bag (i've got away with probably about £9 worth before) before depositing a couple of large items into the small bag, just enough for about 50g worth.

At this point, your friend should approach the counter, with the SMALL bag (that has already been paid for) and pay again. The difference should be enough to allay suspicion, as long as the large bag stays by the sweets.

And, voila! Mucho free sweets!

Got me through transformers, and I still sweets left at the end!

You can do something similar by filling a pic'n'mix bag at the supermarket first, and then eating it while you do the rest of your shopping = FREE SWEETS.
