"I hacked my PSP because i wanted faster load times" Yea and im sure it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that you could pirate the hell out of games. I know that's why I hacked mine. At least i'm honest about it

Along those lines, I was out of town one weekend, and my cousin messages me over Facebook saying he received a refund check from or some computer component website in the amount of like 1500 bucks. I called him shortly thereafter and asked him 2 things, "did you cash it?" And "Have you ever bought anything from" He answered No to both questions... He did tell me, however, that he went to the police, and asked them if it seemed legitimate. The cop took a quick look at it, and deemed it "Legit to cash"

I laughed at that statement and then offered my rebuttal... "CJ, You haven't shopped there, and they're sending you a "refund check" for something you've never purchased... doesnt this throw a red flag somewhere?"

Common sense says if you haven't shopped there, or signed up for any contests, then obviously it's a scam. He tore up the check.
