Stupidity tax

A 55-year-old man in Murfreesboro, TN, was conned out of $7,000 in one of the oldest scams in the book.

Two con men pretended to be rich foreigners who didn't trust banks. They persuaded the victim to withdraw his own money from the bank to show them how it's done, then told him he could prove his own trustworthiness by walking around a McDonalds while they held onto his money. Then -- surprise! -- they disappeared faster than you can say, "Big Mac."

Full story here.

Editor's note: Even foreigners know about banks. Really.
