    He wanted a PowerBook sooo bad. But couldn't make himself buy one from Apple. :cool:

    Ha. I was talking about the guy who did the prank. At the end, it said he wasn't heard from again.

    If you want to get more chuckles about scammers getting screwed over by enterprising individuals, just Google the term "scamming the scammer" and there are a few websites dedicated to this hobby.

    Thanks for the suggestion! :D

    Perhaps after almost being scammed myself, I enjoy seeing this sort of thing happen to the no good, low life, scum sucking, SOB's known as scammers. :mad:

    Okay, I will end my rant now. :)
