    Wink

    Single - that cop who called you and said he missed the drop... it was Ape Natural's big buddy.

    There was no kid. There was no cat called Buttermilk.

    Ape Natural was the Ebay buyer.

    He's Nigerian. And he just traded you a lens that you already owned for a brand new pair of Moment Night Trains.

    Elaborate, yes, but hey, he's a Nigerian scam artist.

    Anyone else would have seen it coming a mile away

    I do have some snapshots of the backyard and front of the house... I won't post them up publicly but if anyone wants them over email or PM I can get them to you if you feel like some spam/hatemail is in order...

    And to clarify a couple of things:

    1) The cats name was biscuit (not a big deal but whatever)

    2) The "kid in question was around 3 years old, sitting at the same kitchen table that the lens was on. He was watching the whole thing go down, but for some crazy ass reason he kept his mouth shut. My friend just walked in and was like, "hey man, what's up" and the kid just sat there and watched the whole thing go down while eating his cereal. The parents were in the house, but I think they were in the shower or something. Needless to say we just hauled ass out of there... And when I say haul ass I'm pretty sure I set some kind of world record for crutch galloping top speed.


    Other than that the details are pretty much right on... I just wish I could've been there to see the confusion when they tried to figure out what the fuck happened to there lens... "I could've sworn I left it right on the kitchen table..." Bitches.

    Before someone puts two and two together, I didnt pay 675 for the night trains. I just used someone elses paypal and scammed some stupid kid on ebay. Told him I was on business, etc.

    Unfortunately I did have to pay shipping though.

    Assuming the parents were the scammers and beat the 3 year old into confessing what happened, they now know some big motherfucker walked right into their home, talked to their child, knew exactly what to take, and left completely undetected.
    Opportunities for terrorizing these assholes are endless.

    There has been some police interaction with the occupants of the residency since the event. I would advise against any further action against the home. Whats done is done, everything has been resolved.

    Plus the occupants were not the scammers. It was just a drop point. But they were not necessarily good people either. But they have nothing to hide from the cops anymore, and that might mean they could take said hatemail directly to the police.

    too bad, because I'm sure there are enough people with dogs and old camera lens boxes around here that it could get hilarious.

    That took some balls.
    You're lucky you didn't get shot. A lot of people in the pnw would have shot you on sight. Pretty bad ass. I'm amazed at the risk you took to help a stranger out.
    Wow.

    Was thinking the same thing. Something like that would probably lead to death in Colorado with our favorable castle laws protecting the home.

    Outstanding effort to help out a maggot.

    In regards to how this works, I still don't get how the homeowners are not the bad guys. Someone who they obviously knew, had stolen stuff shipped to their house. I'm thinking big boxes of dogshit are still on the go list.
