Know your onions

with 2 comments

You hear a lot of scare stories about buying goods from backstreet dealers but, frankly, there’s rarely anything to worry about.

Ealing Gazette, 25 May 2010 (story):

Bargain laptop turns out to be bag of onions

A SCAM victim thought he was buying a laptop at a bargain price was horrified to discover he had actually purchased a bag of onions.

He was approached by two con artists in Station Parade, Acton, and followed them to their silver Ford Fiesta where he was shown the brand new computer. He handed over the £200 they asked for but was given another box which contained the vegetables.

I bet this will have led to a bit of onion-related argy-bhaji.

  1. No, I think he will just have been really pissed off to have parted with £200 and got a sack full of onions….
