LOL i was just checking this gaming website and i found this, its kinda funny thought u'll like it...anywazy here it is:

A staffer at a Michigan Wal-Mart mailed in to let us know about a rather funny 'Xbox 360' which passed through their returns center. A guy returned an original Xbox spray painted in white and put it in an Xbox 360 box bundled with some official accessories but also a random power adapter and regular phone cord. When this was noticed by management, the returnee ran out of the store as fast he could http://forums.maxconsole.net/images/smilies/smile.gif.

I work at a wal-mart in michigan and had a rather funny looking "xbox 360" come through our return center. As you can tell by the pictures, it isnothing more than and original xbox spray painted white. Obviously when
this was noticed at the store, management was called, at which point the person returning this ran out the door leaving his xbox behind. The picture of the misc. cords is what was put in the 360 box with system.
There was a regular phone cord, standard stereo cables, the actual headset and ethernet cable, and a random ac adapter. he does get props on a good paintjob though.

LOL thats funny, what would have made it even better is if they had actually given him a brand new 360

Seriously, this guy must have some reason. He probably had one crap out, so trying to keep his HD he wanted to get a new core.

The sad thing is that I've seen people get away with similar crap.
I've seen Apple Ipods returned with small bean bags in the box and had hollowed out display chassis PS2's returned back in the day.

The funniest was when some git stole my display model PSP, and then come back into the store to return it later that afternoon for a "refund". God, that's when watching the UFC really paid off LOL

This makes me feel better about the time I tried to return my broken PS2 at Walmart. What happened in brief:

Me: "Hi, I'd like to make a return"
*hands Walmart clerk the PS2*
Clerk: "Do you have a receipt?"
Me: "No, it was a gift from relative. I already have one though."
Clerk: "Okay then. Is there anything wrong with it or are you just returning it?"
Me: "Just a return"
*Clerk scans serial number of the PS2*
Clerk: "Sir, this console was purchased 2 years ago"
*I feign surprise*
Me: "Wha....what?! Oh, gosh, I must have grabbed my old console by mistake"
Clerk: *in a knowing voice* "Must have..."

I don't think my face has ever been so red before or since. Ouch... :eek:

Damn. I was hoping that this story would have worked the other way around, so I could get rid of my modded Xbox and get... another 360!

Webby you know this isn't what I meant you should do? I know M$ is giving you a hassle about fixing your 360 but surely this is not the answer. Although you did a great paint job on that Xbox.

That sure is creative. I would have laughed. I've seen some funny shit get returned. Someone brought me some DVDs one day and said they wanted to sell them. So like usual I started checking them for scratches, then I get about half way through the stack of about 5 and start noticing purple bottoms on all the disc (dvdrs) I told him I couldn't buy them back and he was like what, why? I assured him we didn't buy burnt dvd's and he left because i told him I wasn't taking any of them.

Lol that's really funny. Some clerks would actually believe it, though. I don't think anyone in my area would get tricked, however.

ROTFLMAO!!

You know, he went to all that effort and then bails leaving his handiwork behind... If he was truly an imaginative scammer, he would have taken it with him and driven to the next WalMart down the road and tried again.

I think the key would be to do it during school hours that way all the old timers would be there.
