Let’s say you’re out and about one day, running errands and whatnot, and you’re in the parking lot of a convenience store or Wal-Mart or whatever, and some strange guys come up to you. They tell you they produce pornography for a website, and they need to launder some sticky, sticky porn money, so can they pay you a thousand bucks to let them deposit two thousand bucks or so into your checking account for a couple of days using your cash card and PIN number?
Here in Florida, some people are falling for this. And some people who were suspicious have reported being forced to go along with the scheme at gunpoint–which, in my opinion, sounds more like a poorly conceived lie told by somebody who didn’t want to admit he actually fell for this.
