A fraud you got away with...

I'll start. I was in the elementary school and at the time, frito-lay chips had a "sticker" as a surprise toy, one per bag. I was collecting them and I had one more to complete the set of 40. The last one was difficult to find. One guy in school had it but he would trade it for 20 of the other ones.

I wrote frito-lay and told them that in 20 occasions I had bags of ship that came with no sticker. They sent me 20 stickers, including the one I was looking for. I completed my collection and sold the other 19 a quarter each...

I felt like a gansta!

I tried to sell someone a bag of oregano in middle school. It almost worked.

I did manage to trade two $5s for a Monopoly $10 in grade school. Not that the kid was 'fooled', but i bullied him into standing by it. (I didn't let him see the fake money till after he gave me the real fives). Yeah, I was a jerk.

I once got a rare, first edition Monopoly $10 bill from some chump... He thought he was hot ****, getting $10 for it. I sold it for about $750 a week later.

I make people fall in love with me, and then I break up with them after I'm bored with getting it on with them.

Don't worry, I won't tell. As long as you make me a nice tanned "leather" lampshade.

It's difficult to mail things like that, but if you want to come pick it up in person...

This chinese buffet restaurant had these cards that they gave out. Each time you ate, they would stamp your card. When you got 12 stamps, you got that meal free. I had 15 of them cards and everytime I ate with friends, I'd hand them a card to get it stamped. My friends weren't regulars there so they didn't mind. I got all the cards stamped and began cashing them in for free meals. The restaurant owner gave me angry looks, he knew I pulled a fast one on him but he had to shaddup and give me my free meal 'cause I had stamped cards.
I swear he stopped doing those cards just to spite me.
