Now. I've lifted an XBox, and I know how big it's packing materials are. There's no way you could ship such a thing for less than twenty dollars. That's fairly suspicious, right there.
I mean, it's an elaborate scam, but if I were looking to commit identity fraud, that's a darn good way to build a database of credit card numbers matched to names and addresses. Heck, I'd even send the prize, and wait six months to throw off suspicion.
...which is where the laugh comes in:
- How humiliating would it be for the criminal mastermind behind all of this if he actually sent the XBox, then discovered the account he's gained access to was pre-paid with a limit of $7.50?
