I too have been ripped off for $49 on Sept. 15, 2008 in Muncie, IN. A kid who called himself Nate Wing said he was a Michigan State University student and had relatives living in the area. He claimed he was in a contest to earn a trip to Europe selling books for one of his classes at MSU and the books could go to the underprivledged or to myself. Heard later from my US Mail carrier that he was down the street telling a totally different story and lying to someone else. Unfortunately, I let the ball drop and did not go find him nor cancel my check. Too bad, now all the honest pe0ple in need of help will have to look elsewhere...I won't be burnt twice and should have known better.
