Egoy3k: I'm guessing that the business was failing miserably long before the owner handed cash to scam artists. There is no way that anybody is dumb enough to fall for that and yet runs a profitable business

csny_Hippie: And a down payment equals ownership now?
Jument: However, the sock no longer contained any money. Instead, the sock "was filled with wet construction paper cut in the shape of money," according to reports.Oh wait, let me laugh even harder...
TheManMythLegend: That article was full of dumb.
que.guero: This story sounds like something someone would make up to avoid getting in even more trouble.One of three things happened.1. She's selling something illegal on the side and got ripped off2. She fell for the "I'll share this fortune with you if you'll give me what's in the register" scam.3. She pocketed the money and is claiming it was stolen.
dv-ous: About a week ago, police said, a black man with an African accent and whiskers tattooed onto his face entered the business.On the plus side, it'll take all of ten minutes to find the guys mugshot and/or passport photo.
The Man With Crazy Super Animal Powers: This is a lot of trouble to go to in order to steal from a cash register in a local butcher shop. Why go to all this work when you could just walk in and take the money and be just as guilty?How is going through this complicated charade any less difficult than just walking in, having an accomplice distract the lady, and cleaning out her register when she's not looking? I mean, this wasn't even a con. It was just a straight-up robbery.
ChipNASA: In before "Insurance Scam".
durbnpoisn: I DNRTFA. And from the tone of this thread I'm glad I skipped it.But let me see if I've got this right.A woman sold her business to a dude promissing that the money for the transaction was in "this here sock". Once she got the sock, the transaction was over, and now the business, including the money in the register (what?!) now belong to him. So she got robbed.But she got robbed. What happened to the dude that robbed her? Who owns the business now? How does the sale of a business go anywhere NEAR as simply as exchanging cash? That's just not legally possible.Did I get it right? Am I as confused as everyone else for the same reasons?
