Dumb Mikey Makes a Purchase

Mikey was walking down Wilson Street in Arlington with his girlfriend the other day when he spotted a sign in a store window that said, “Suits, $5 each, Shirts, $2 each, and Trousers, $2.50 per pair.”   Being Mikey, he wanted to show his girlfriend how smart he is, so he said to her, “Honey, check this out, I am going to go in here and buy tons of these clothes and make us a huge profit.”  As he starts to walk in the store, he continues by saying to her, “Now, babe, you just let me do all the talking.”  His girlfriend smirked, said nothing and just followed him in.

Online Auction Scams - Hjacking on eBay

If you are selling on eBay, beware of the latest.   Our account recently was “hijacked” by someone.   How it happened we don’t know and eBay was not as forthcoming with the info.   The only thing that saved us from an embarrassing situation was that the thieves were not able to receive our emails.   They used our account to list electronic equipment for 24 hours, hoping to cash in before we noticed.   Fortunately, they were not able to access our email and that is how we caught them, because people were asking us questions about “our listings” which were in fact not ours.

When he gets inside, Mikey says to the man behind the counter, “Okay buddy, I’ll take 50 of the $5 suits, 100 of the $2 shirts and 50 of the trousers at $2.50.”  The man looks up and smiles and says, “You must be Mikey, I’ve heard a lot about you in the NOVA-Antiques Newsletter.”  Mikey is all proud of himself and smiles until he hears the man say, “The problem though Mikey, is that this is a drycleaners, not a retail store.”
