Interesting--the Seattle Times is reporting a series of fake ads by "Plasma World" in newspapers across the country, selling plasma TVs (and down comforters and pillows?). The ads were paid for with counterfeit checks. The store address provided was a fake, and the phones were handled by a call center paid for by a stolen credit card. Customers who tried to buy things via the call center have had their credit cards milked for all that they're worth.
You expect this sort of thing on the net, I guess, but for some reason it's suprising to see it happening in the real world.
