Can't find cheaper parts anywhere ...UNLESS...

Please...Leave Home Without It.
American Express uses the slogan "Don't leave home without it." Well, the woman pictured to the left SHOULD have left home without her American Express Travelers Checks...because they were FAKE. She passed more than $1,000 in fake travelers checks at a local Walmart. The guy walking behind her was with her the entire time. They were quality fakes, but if you are a store clerk, watch out for checks with stickers on them. Just sayin'.
SMILE! You're on Candid Camera!
The woman pictured to the left must have forgotten that ATMs have cameras. That's OK, we wanted to see her picture so we would know who to arrest for using stolen credit cards.
