Human stupidity. It seems to be a constant in all our lives. However, just when you think you seen it all, along comes Amir Massoud Tofangsazan. Who you may well ask? Let me explain!

Well, Amir has achieved a good deal of notority due to a laptop he sold on E-Bay. You see, company exec Amir, had a laptop he wanted to sell. So Tom, lap_top_guy, being in need of a laptop, bid for and won said item. Although lap_top_guy paid the £375 total within a few days, it took almost nearly two months for Amir to post the laptop. What lap_top_guy didn’t know however, was that it differed slightly from its description on E-Bay. Rather than having 2Gb of RAM, it only had 512Mb. It also didnt have a DVD-RW as described. Most importantly of all, the laptop didn’t actually work! Despite polite requests from the seller, Amir denied anything was wrong and refused to refund the money. Finally, he claimed to have moved to Dubai and hoped lap_top_guy would forget all about it. It turns out though, Amir isn’t as clever as he thinks he is…

You see, Amir didn’t bother to delete and reformat the hard-drive before he sent it off to lap_top_guy. Although the computer wasn’t working, the hard drive was fine… and so was all the information stored on it! Whoops! It turns out that Amir had his entire life on the laptop and then some. Turns out that Amir wasn’t a big business exec but a nineteen year old from Barnet, England, with delusions of grandeur. Amir left all his bank details, his mum’s bank details, scans of both his and his mum’s passports as well as his mum’s driving licenses, various copies of his CV (all with different GCSE grades) as well as full access to his MSN and hotmail (which just signed in automatically!). Not to mention all the porn. Lots and lots and lots of porn. Women, foot fetish and a fair old slice of gay porn. And all the photos that Amir had taken with his camera phone, included one of him sitting in front of the defective laptop! Lots of photos of Amir and ‘the mystery man’ with their tops off. And most disturbingly, many, many (90 to be exact) pictures of woman’s legs that Amir took on the train with his camera phone (without the womens permission).

Now, lap_top_guy was understandably pissed off at being ripped off but highly amused at finding this wide selection of information so easily accessible. What else could he do but publish this information on the internet for the whole world to see! Now… that is Karma. However, lap_top_guy isn’t being totally vengeful…

You know as well as me that you sold me faulty goods. Even if the laptop worked when you posted it (which I do not believe), I have a letter from Royal Mail saying your packaging was not sufficient, so either way you are liable for the cost of the laptop. However, I do not want you to give the money back to me. I want you to give it to charity, whatever charity or charities you feel deserve it. I can survive without the money, and if you find it in yourself to do the right thing, admit you made a mistake and give £375 to a good cause, I hope the world will take note that you have taken responsibility, learnt a lesson and can do good things. This way, you will be left with at least some respect, and your reputation will survive, as everybody makes mistakes, it just takes courage to admit to them and move on. If you donate to charity, i will take the photos down and replace them with details of your donations and your apology. You will then be remembered as the scammer who changed his ways, rather than the scammer who hid from his problems and refused to admit when he was wrong. So if you want to put an end to this, contact me at lap_top_guy@hotmail.com

As yet, Amir hasn’t made any attempt to restore his honour…
