Laundering money by reselling stolen cookies on ebay? I thought it was all Tide, diapers, and Crest White Strips these days. Who the hell is buying cookies on ebay?

Ours was used to buy a year's subscription to an expensive trade magazine. Believe it or not there are trade magazines in special fields that may only have 400-500 subscribers and the rate for a subscription is around $2500.  Anyway, the scam was to pay by credit card, immediately cancel, and try to get a cash refund.

It didn't work. Your credit card companies are amazingly vigilant. About some things.

The editor was droll about it. He knows by name or reputation the people who would get his magazine. He asked if we'd be interested.

.

If it's elaborate plan, is it really worth it for all the effort if all you get is less than 20K in cookies?

I think a lot of grifters/scammers are just bored, or it's a hobby or compulsion. Ms Medic Zero works in a business with a lot of a scammers, which is funny, because with the company she works for, you can't really get anything of monetary value out of them. Doesn't stop an endless stream of people from trying though.
