This Ladies and Gentlemen, is quite possible the best prank across the net I have ever come across. I recommend you read it right through.

P-P-P Powerbook!

"Jeff was never heard from again."

Hmmm. He conducted a fraudulent transaction, and is probably paying the price for it.

Myself, and probably most people, would have backed out as soon as e-bay responded. The transaction was rendered null, and void. So he was in the clear. After that, if he proceded with the transaction he would be up the creek without a paddle, so to speak. Worse, he tacked on a higher "tax" on a worthless item.

That means he commited multiple acts of fraud, without justification. I am sure that Jeff is serving a sentence, and is likely prohibited from using computers.

Two wrongs do not make a right.

Evidently, yes. But the purpose of posting this article is to laugh at it. Funny though, I wonder if the scammer was picked up. That, he was the one committing fraud and ripping several people off in a much more serious way. The Government would have made cash off the taxes.

That thing looked great! Where else can you get a powerbook with features like the "Circle!" and the "who knows?". It even says that its real right on it!

I've seen it before, but it was a long time back. It's an epic response, but I must say I thought something along the lines of what monster_user said, which I feel is unfortunate, because it was much deserved. He was only fighting fire with fire.
