Faux Phones

More brilliant criminals here in Ohio in the state capital, Columbus, no less. Apparently some high tech geniuses used rocks to smash in the back door of a Verizon store and took all the display phones. The display phones are dummies, you know like the thieves. Real cell phones are locked in a vault at night due to a previous successful robbery. When they get caught they won't be able to hold their heads up in jail amongst the real criminals.

They'll put them on eBay, just a pic and very little description, and sell them to suckers who think they're buying working models.

When the local Radio Shack went out of business, they sold their display phones -- 2 for $5.00. I bought two because of a project I have in mind but would have gotten many more if there had been multiples of each model.

You mean worse suckers than they are! :lol: They would make great toys for the kids at 2 for $5 though.

As bad as the guys who worked for my electronic recycler, that took a display iPhone and brought it back, who promptly got fired

I used to work in a big box home improvement store. I once watched a 15-16 year old kid break open a display and steal the empty display version of a Motorola 2 way radio. IF it had been a working model it would still have done him no good as that particular model required two or more that matched in order to work. Some people.
