I'm ethical. I only bomb small lakes.

Ironic tag being held as an accessory?

He stole from rich people.

They're gonna bury him so deep the devil will look down on him.

If he'd just have defrauded poor people, he'd be on the cover of Forbes.

What cyberfraud might look like:

So if you see anyone wearing a hoodie huddled around a laptop in a dimly lit room staring at a Matrix screensaver, they just might be doing cyberfraud!

It's easy to defraud the rich and people who are convinced they are legends in their own mind.   Consider a former neighbor of mine, retired mechanical engineer who knew nothing about computers.  One day this guy waved me over and said, "You futz around with computers, right?"  That right that is a narcissist classic.  " Anything I know or can do is invaluable, no price I place on it can be too high, anything you know or can do is just worthless bullshiat that I can't be bothered with."  Anyway this is how the rest of the conversation went.

Me:  Yeah, I 'futz around' with computers.

Neighbor:  I got a call from Microsoft yesterday.

Me:  Let me guess, they detected a problem with your Windows install?

Neighbor:  How did you know?

Me: And it will only cost $39.95 to repair.

Neighbor:  He said that was the regular price but they were having a special for yesterday only, $29.95.

Me:  You didn't give them your credit card number did you?

Neighbor:  Oh, no.   I told them my neighbor futzes around with computers, he'll fix it for free.

Me: Microsoft didn't call you.

Neighbor:  Yes they did.

Me: No, they didn't.

Neighbor:  But they knew I had a computer.

Me:  (Pointing at random houses in the neighborhood)  Computer, computer, computer, computer....

Neighbor:  Oh, I don't think so.  Besides they knew I had Windows.

Me: 85% of desktops/laptops run windows.   Pick any house at random and there is an 85% chance that it will contain at least one computer running Windows.

Neighbor:  So you coming over?

Me:  Come over for what?

Neighbor:  To fix my computer.

At that point I turned around and walked away thinking to myself.  "Fizz, you're poor and will always be poor because you give morans too much credit."

So... You defragged it to get a status bar and charged him $20, right?

RIGHT?

I helped him with his computer a few times prior, he never paid and never offered to pay.  Like I said, he saw himself as a genius that couldn't be bothered with trivial bullshiat like computers.  That's for losers like me.

Genius but couldn't be bothered to learn the fancy computer machine, and looks down at those who do.  Sadly, I know the type.
