In his defense, that $50 saved could have bought him a fancy new LCD TV microwave screen they sell in Walmart parking lots...

Wait, he handed over the cash before inspecting the contents of the box? Or even seeing a box? I've met in parking lots before, never had a problem. But I ALWAYS keep the cash on my person (notice I didn't say wallet) until AFTER I've seen the goods.

I saw the title of this article and thought, "As if that's never happened before..."

I wonder if the sellers actually had a PS3, but the buyer just forked over the money too early.

Good. People as stupid as him deserve to lose their money. What if the seller had actually handed him the PS3, how would he have known it works? There are somethings you just don't buy in a parking lot.

To get a darwin award you have to do something so stupid that you are removed from the gene pool, so it is usually given to dead people. However, one guy was given the award for accidently shooting himself in the nuts.
