Thief Nephew Steals His Way Out of College Money

No one is prepared to tolerate a thief, and this guy's nephew stole himself a ticket to 40K extra in college debt when he decided to abuse his uncle's trust. It doesn't seem like too good of an investment.

For some sneakiness that lies in the realm of the absurd, here are cons people pulled off through complete confidence.

Petition to Sell Montana to Canada Is Well on It's Way to Making Its Goal

Change.org has been host to some pretty questionable petitions, such as "let people drink the red liquid from the dark sarcophugus" a few months back, when a really old Egyptian Sarcophagus was exhumed.

Here's what people, even some self-proclaimed citizens of Montana, had to say.
