Man, these incompetent scammers just keep on coming right out of the woodwork. In this case, it sounds like the scammer was in way over their head from the start. On top of that, they'd clearly overplayed their scam to such a point that it was just going to be too easy to rightfully shut them down. Hence, the payment request and what we'd imagine was a very surprised and displeased scammer.

Spelling Fails That Mangled Words Up Nice

You can't sit down and make everyone spell the way you'd like them to, so you're just kind of left with seeing the mistakes where they arise and laughing about them when you can.

Dumb Baby Names People Had To Be Talked Out Of

For some reason, when people get a particularly stupid name in their head, it's a really hard time for the people around them to convince them that no, maybe "Tylenol van Halen" is a bad name for a baby, you stupid idiot. Some of these people weren't even convinced effectively, and still ended up naming their kid "Hot Wheels" or whatever. This kind of crap happens all the time, like this boyfriend who wanted to name his baby after a character from Twilight.
