You wouldn't think that so many people would get scammed into buying speakers from the back of a van, but there it is. This is a really amusing thread. I mean, if you're into other peoples' misfortune.

Review Summary: I guess I have the word "sucker" written on my forehead, because a week after I fell for this scam I was hit up again by a different guy at a different location. This time, I wasn't as enthusiastic. I told him that he owed me $300 (the amount I had paid for the pair earlier that week). He laughed and told me to screw off, and proceeded to walk back to his van. At that point I decided that I was temporarily insane, and attempted to kill him with my bare hands. Unfortunately, as a few people have already mentioned, these guys travel in pairs. I doubt that the punches I landed were worth $300, but at least I vented some of my anger, and came home with a pretty cool shiner."

heh. that guy's cool. :)
