Laptop scam – wasn’t the ‘victim’ also guilty?
20 April, 2017
• I’M amazed that the victim of the con had the gall to contact the police (Laptop bottles scam warning, April 13).
Where did he think two shifty characters had obtained a MacBook which they wanted to sell on the street?
An obvious inference is that they had thieved it – so the scam-victim was more than ready to collude with criminality when it suited his purpose. They should have arrested him on the spot!
