Have you ever got Scammed?

I got gypped today in the Parking lot of the mall, some guys in a white van came up to me and tried to sell me a Home Theater system for $3000. I bargained with them and ended up paying them only $1700, when I got home all the parts were broken and it didn't even come up any wires or nothing. I was pissed!......Anyways did you ever get Scammed?


yea I know I guess I learned the hard way.

Update 2:

No I live in Los Angeles, they sold me a brand called "Olin Ross" I looked it up on Best Buy and Circuit City, but no stores even carried this brand. I got Gypped big time bro

    Yes.Recently I sent a money order to a seller on eBay.Never got the item,and neither did 15 other people,according to their feedback.Will only use Pay pal from now on.Also on Kijiji,was selling an item and was sent a fake bank draft for it.Luckily,it didn't cash,and the bank didn't call the police.Cash only from now on from people I meet on that site.

    Phone number:


    I will alert my personal assistant to get the Bank Check mail to your address.

    I was emailed this a few minutes ago, I know it's a scam so I'm not going to reply. Just be aware of any bank check transaction and never give out any info. This guy refuses to give me his number or tell me where he is from.

    many have TRIED to scam me, but as I give advice to others on how to avoid being scammed, I have not really been scammed yet--they keep trying.

  • No, I've never bought electronics out of the back of a van in a mall parking lot.
