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?

Con-adian Pennies
A few years ago, when an American dollar was worth about $1.30 Canadian, I had the bright idea to pay for items here in the U.S. with exact change, but using one Canadian penny instead of a U.S. one in each purchase, since they look nearly the same, thereby profitting about 3/10 of a cent with each purchase. Of course, I didn't have an unlimited supply of Canadian pennies, so I'm sure I made less than 5 cents in total. And now the Canadian pennies are worth more than the U.S. ones anyway...
