### money trick

This trick will work 9 out of 10 times!

You ask someone to put a $20 bill in a small box, you also add a$20 bill. Next you tell them they can buy the box containing $40 for just$30. Force then them make a quick descision and they'll buy it.

The guy that sold the nice little box to the fraudster and who has zero chance of getting a fist in the face or arrested by the police.
