I was watching the sorry-ass news this morning, and they did an expose 'alerting' shoppers to a new scam involving gift cards. I won't give the details of the scam here, because then I would be acting just like them.
The point of it all is that the news basically gave you a step-by-step breakdown of how to complete this particular scam. It's something the average person would never think of, and yet, is such a simple scam. I couldn't believe the news laid it out for them, just like that. It's something a part-time or lazy criminal could pull off.
This is not the first time the news or media in general has given people ideas. I believe all crime-related shows are nothing more than reverse training. Here's what NOT to do, so you don't get caught. I believe all of these shows should be removed from the airways. One, because it truly is giving these fools ideas and Two, I just don't think meditating on murder is healthy.
