This is a great scam, if that's not an oxymoron. I almost featured it in my con artist act a while back, but decided to leave it out because it's so easy that people may actually try it and get hurt. It's not about doing it to the same person more than once, it's that if you don't sell it right, you will get caught and "punished".

Why would you do it more than once to the same person.

Not doing it twice to same person. What I meant was you might do it the first time, then when you thought it was so easy that you would try it again, the next person may see the light, then start to kick some butt.

Does anyone have a fear of people getting VERY upset when you do paper balls over the head on them? Oh, and yes, people will kick [edited] if they get scammed for money.

EDIT: Why do they sensor that?

It's "crude" language.

But are you being sarcastic, I really can't tell whenever someone posts this type of thing. I am not trying to be rude I just am not sure exactly what way you are coming from.

I've seen this in a book called the book of mischief. The way it explains it is to say that you want to play a game where each player places a dollar on the table and bids money. Whoever has the highest bid pays the other person and pockets the money on the table. So let's say you each put a dollar. I would start out with .50 and the person would say .75 I would say a 1 dollar and the other person would say 1.25 believing they would still make a .75 profit. He pays you and pockets the money and you actually make a .75 profit.

It might work...on the severely [edited], or the very drunk. Try it on anyone else and you may get ignored-if they are nice-or crippled if they are not so nice. Is the mild laugh you may get worth spending the rest of your life on a wheelchair...as may happen? Only you can say.
