Idiot Sells Duff Beer, Moron Pays Idiot for Duff Beer

According to ABC News:

A north Queensland woman who made nearly $2,000 through an Internet beer scam has been ordered to serve 18 months probation.

Student Tara Woodford, 28, pleaded guilty in the Mackay Magistrates Court to selling three cartons of Duff beer, made famous by the animated US television series The Simpsons.

Police prosecutor Gavin Burnett told the court Woodford was paid $1,950 for the goods, but never actually had them in her possession.

She was ordered to reimburse the money, to undergo counselling and psychological assessment.

Does the Internet make people stupid or is it just a megaphone for stupidity that wouldn’t be noticed otherwise?
