it was a simple news blurb yesterday.
a woman, shopping at a K-Mart here in Mostly Smoggy So. Cal., was approached by one man, offering to sell her a gold bar. another guy came up and said 'oh yeah, it's real, blah, blah, blah...'
they convinced her to go to the bank and withdraw her life savings - $9000.
surprise!! it was a fake.
now - while i feel horrible that this woman lost that much money, i still gotta say: if you're doing your shopping at K-Mart, you shouldn't expect to get a killer deal on gold bars in the parking lot.
just a thought.
