People in Indiana thought they were getting a deal on a new LCD TV. They bought the set for $250 on the street, went home, and tore off the packaging to reveal the glory that is their… OVEN DOOR. Scammer sells oven doors as LCD screens, wrapping them in careful packaging and even including promotional inserts. My favorite quotes from the story (if you want to call it that):
1. “Investigators in South Bend, Ind., said there has been a rash of oven door thefts recently, and now they know why.”
2. “The oven doors even came with remote controls and power cords.” :whoa:
Beautiful scam. I hope the guy doesn’t get caught.

2. Soda drinkers, who have been drinking benzene, a cancer-causing chemical. Just for the taste of it.
