Were you ever the victim of the TV in plastic scam before?

Then after you bought it did you realize TVs don't come wrapped in Plastic? In the back was a stick up and a dead tube. Sort of a quick sell. Have you even been taken before? And please don't say Obama took me. please?


You see Frank told the truth. It happen to me too. Im not scared to tell it. But its all good though. I learned a valuable lesson. I could only laugh at my fool self.

Update 2:

    The world is full of con artists trying to make a quick buck. Consider yourself lucky, all it cost you was the price of a bad TV. Some people get taken for all they have by the weasels out there.
