Have you guys ever been Ripped Off/Scam or a part of fraud?
Yesterday I went to buy a laptop for college, and I went on a Chinese wholesale website. I bought a laptop for $1,200. Don't ask me why I thought that site was legit, but it wasn't. I paid through pay-pal, luckily I called pay-pal and they were able to return my money. I went from :frown: -----> :biggrin:

What are some stories you have?

When I was in first grade, I gave my holographic Charizard and Hitmonchan to a fifth grader that said he was going to pay me the next day.

He never did :(
I think most of us have fallen for that one. I did the same with a GBA game of mine in 5th grade. :l

I bought a Game Boy Color for $30 from someone in my neighborhood. It was really a giant rip off.
I lent my Pokemon Sapphire to the same person and I never got it back. I was so angry! I was really more ticked off about Sapphire, though.

I bought a collection of Kingdom Hearts music and when I got it the sound quality on one of the CD's was awful. I almost got scammed on eBay but the seller got kicked off before the sell was final. After that I was more careful on eBay.

I bought a copy of Zelda: the Minish Cap on ebay a little while back. It worked fine, but I noticed the plastic of the cartridge was a little different from normal, and it was hard to get in my DS's GBA slot. Then I found online that the sticker's background was the wrong color. I guessed it was a fake, but I wasn't sure. Then I tried to use an Gameshark to get one really annoying item, and the game went poop. It never turned on again, and the guy got rid of his ebay account before I could send it back and get my money back. I kinda miss that game...

At one of those all day summer camps, not the overnight ones, I became friends with this one kid who had some epic Pokemon(Mewtwo, Legendary Birds, etc) and he asked me to level his Pokemon for him from like whatever they were to 100 as a favor and I agreed. My mom said I technically don't have to go to the last day of camp if I didn't want to so I told him I'd take his Pokemon Red home and work on it then be back the next day. Never went back and never saw him again.

Driving home I thought about it for a second and didn't remember what the kid named the Pokemon trainer. I checked and thankfully all he put was "Ash" and not his name because that would've ruined it for me.

After a year or so I sort of felt bad but then Pokemon Stadium came out and his line up helped me take out the Elite Four and all the tournaments so no regrets.

Karma: I think someone stole my Pokemon Silver. Fair enough.

A few years ago my mum picked up a fifty from the ground. When she went to the ATM the machine cut her short $150. Since then I just leave any money I find on the floor, on the floor. Illogical, false causal attribution? All the way.
