  30. The closest I've come to being conned is a sales person talking me into buying something I was on the fence about. My cheapness helps me avoid cons in general.

  31. I entered a contest at beer festival to win a trip to Florida. (Had to chug a beer as quickly as possible.) Out of the thousands of people who entered, I won! Free airfare and hotel stay, plus $500 of extra spending money. All I had to do was pay a "small" winner's fee. A measly $2000 later, I realized it was a scam. Luckily, I cancelled all transactions. Still, the beer was pretty damn tasty.

    ReplyDelete
