Does anyone feel pity for this guy ? I'm not sure I do

Yes he is the victim of a crime, but there is no-way he could believe such a good deal was legit ... could he ?

Let's face it, everyone is greedy in some ways.

I am sure the man (who was duped) thought he could sell those for a profit too.

yeah what a joke :)

but to be honest, I got in same kind situation myself back in 1998 when I was in high school... myself and mates where walking around the city and some dude came and asked if we want some music CD for a $1 each, when they costed like $10-20 in a store. All sealed in plastic and looked good. I bought 10. When I came home and unpacked - there were no actual CDs, just CD boxes with cover and sealed. :(

Shame. and I never buy things on street now.
