    Classic scamming the scammer tale - the in depth PDF of the whole story is hilarious.

    I found the kiddie-porn/yam reference slightly disturbing...

    Pretty simple; some guy was trying to sell a PowerBook,and was contacted by a standard out of country / fake escrow service-weilding scammer. When reporting him didn't do a whole lot, he worked with a bunch of forum members to ship the guy a binder with a keyboard drawn on it and try to get him to pay the $300 import taxes.

    There's lots of documentation, and the initial link is to a fake Apple Store page for the binder-based PowerBook.

    That picture seems to have gained a resurgence lately. It's old (and fake in my opinion) and it's already appeared in 2 forums here already in the past few days.

    DISCLAIMER: It's a picture of a girl apparently defecating on herself for those of you who are curious but don't really want to see it.

    I have seen it before too, not only on the site. If you go to www.urbandictionary.com and look up "fecal japan" apparently this is what the girl is doing. Could be fake.
