Have you ever been conned, cheated, or ripped off?

Sunday I ordered Pizza and I gave the guy a cash tip and put a zero with a slash through it on the tip part of my credit card receipt. Sadly, I threw away my receipt like a dummy. Well it cleared my bank for $4 more than what my pizza cost so basically the guy tipped himself an extra $4 without my permission. Hopefully I can get it resolved!

Years ago, I got an email that said I had to re-verify my paypal and to click a link to verify my information. (Which they don't do by email FYI). I stupidly clicked the link and the next thing I knew there was bank account was drained. (Luckily this was reversed by the bank with no trouble but now I am much more careful!)

Well, When I think I was just 5 then, I was showing off my wallet to one of our neigbours who is '14 Years Old.'
The after than, I gave it to her (since I trusted someone too easily) and the next day, my wallet is gone! I was so mad that because I knew taht she too kit, but I never got the chance to get that P20 Bill (P20 means uh, I think it was kinda like $8) and yeah, Did I mentioned I was still 5?

We were robbed on Valentine's day a few years back. Among the things stolen were my GBA SP along with Megaman Zero 3. I was rather unhappy.

I can only think of a few occasions we were robbed. One of the less serious events was when a petty thief broke into our house for A COKE at midnight. The dude left his hat on the kitchen table with the empty coke bottle so that's how we knew someone "broke in", technically he crawled in through an open window. Nothing was missing (except the coke).

Also, we've had quite a few of our cars stolen, including one in an armed hijacking. No one got hurt thankfully. As for me personally, I've been mugged once on my way back from school. A few big guys with butcher knives basically, they were after my cell phone. Lucky milk tarts caught me off guard. Otherwise, I would've dished out a serious whooping. >>;

Well someone stole my tom and jerry boxers when I went swimming, it was rather funny cause the bag was clearly opened when I went into the change room I don't know why someone would want my T&J boxers =\

It's really weird; I'm never robbed, but everyone around me gets robbed D:
We went to a waterpark once, five of us, and we left the key to our locker on our lawn chair x.x Someone took it, 3 of my friend's purses and only another girl and myself didn't have our stuff taken...but then again it was just a backpack and a towel. I felt guilty; I knew the key was there, but I never really thought twice about it! Other then that...I've never had anything stolen from me. And I don't fall for scams either.

I robbed your granny when I was 6. I took $100 and a single cigarette. I light the cig, smoke a tiny breathe, coughed, then threw it out, then proceeded to the shopping district to buy card games and toy cars.

I'm too lazy to post all my stories -.-

I had pokemon cards stolen from me before though -.-

Omgsh.
Recently, this stupid kid stole my iPod.
Then his stupid friend stole my PSP.
He's lucky it wasn't my DS.
I'd beat him in the phace.
>.<
Still, I'm reeeaaally mad.

I had my DS stolen, but I found the kid at my school with it and beat the living **** out of him and ripped his shirt off him.

He didn't play my game though o_o'

>.> Word of advice: get a 9mm pistol. If you get that stolen from your stupid kid's friend's friend, then.... Nocomment~ ><

Anyways, I'm not that irresponsible, I take my possessions seriously, even in a relationship. I dare not loosen up and get too comfortable. I always have friends watch my back, and I'm always willing to fight for something that's mine. This doesn't mean I'm paranoid, only that I take great care of my belongings. So no, I have never lost anything in my life, never been robbed, and sure as hell haven't been conned. Never been taken for as an idiot. And I know an odd deal when I see it.

I was robbed with something that was very expensive and something that was not-so expensive. Sometime in July, I went away on vacation with one of my sisters, my mom and my dad, while my other sister stayed at home. Obviously a sixteen year old with the house to herself for a week could not be trusted and she threw a party where she apparently invited only 10 people. As the party went on, more and more people showed up, already drunk. So people started stealing food from the fridge and money from my sister, and some ass stole my brand new cell phone which my sister was too ignorant to move.

Oh yeah, my calculator was stolen at lunch.

Well one time I traded a 3 day weekend for a Social Project, if thats not a rip off than I don`t know what is.

Ya, okay, no I`ve never really been ripped off. Usssually I end up with a little extra, only like a nickel though.

Yep, robbed, twice. First time was when I was riding my bike to go to a friend's house, and suddenly a suspicious looking guy came towards me, and the moment I realized I had him pointing his gun to me... "take the freaking bike, dude!"

Last time was a year ago, I was returning home by train, and then two guys showed up and one pointed me with something (I didn't know what that was, but didn't want to know, anyway), and they wanted my cell phone, but since I had it inside my backpack, they just took my whole backpack instead (and I had important stuff from my Uni there, which I was lucky to recover the next day... phew...)

Never robbed.. But ripped off.. aha.

Some lady convinced me that the "bootleg" Pokemon Diamond was a new game from Japan and she sold it to me for $35.. I was at least smart enough to know her Green version was not the Leaf Green for GBA but the R/B part. Though that was way too much for a gameboy color game at the time no matter how rare it was. D8 And besides that, the Diamond glitches up near the middle so I can't ever beat it lawl. Green would have been better for my collection. :/

Other than that, I can't really remember anything else major.. Cookies for a dollar at school aha fail. 8D

I'm very lucky: I have been threatened twice, but the first one got 0.50 € (aprox... 0.30$) and the second one (a guy younger than me) nothing. And the funny part is that I always have 5€ (3.4$) in my wallet. Not having a mobile phone helps on people thinking that you are poor.

This is more in the 'ripped-off' section:
I bought 1 of my first DS games a while back, some Spiro game, and I couldn't figure out how to play because of the lack of instructions. It was like $35. I went to a trade-in games for money place, and they gave me $8, not in cash but in some type of gift card that like expired a month later.

My 1st DS was stolen. If you count my DS Lite which is broken but still SORTA works, you could say I'm on DS number 3 now.

Also, MY MOM stole money from me once, for no good reason. That really pissed me off... >(

Well where I live, the post office workers decide to go through letters which they think may be birthday cards as they often contain money. A birthday card was sent to me once by my aunt but it had clearly been opened. There was supposed to be £30 in that card, too.

I wanted to buy an awesome FF bag, that had Cloud's wolf badge on it.

But the lady upped the price.

It was $25 before, then another lady came in and said it was $40.

So I didn't bother buying it.
