    Scamming the Scammer

    I don't whether you've all seen this, my apoliogies if so, but found this website on The Register.

    By the time I got half way through it, I was crying with laughter.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    TYPICAL SCAM CLIFS:
    1)Scammer has fake escrow account
    2)scammer "deposits" money for product + shipping and handling + what ever he has to
    agree to to get the deal through
    3)victem sends product, pays for shipping and handling + other fees THINKING escrow will be refunding him + money for the sale
    4)when scammer gets product, escrow disapears. Free product.

    THIS SCAM CLIFS:
    1)scammer has fake escrow account
    2)victem, isnt a victem. Turns tables
    3)victem finds out that shipping tax of 27.5is% is charged to the receiver of a shipment
    4)victem sends scammer a SCHOOL NOTEBOOK with laptop stuff drawn on it, and tells the shiping agency the value of the object is $2000.
    5)scammer thinks hes gotten off scot free and pays the 27.5% tax, hes now paying for the product, but at a considerably low price. Estimated ammount is about $500.
    6)scammer opens up package expecting his amazingly cheap computer to find his... amazingly cheap computer (pun intended).
    7)victem becomes scammer, scammer gets pwnd.
