    Hey Guys....

    After smoking a huge doob (self employment sucks, doesn't it?), I sat down to relax watching an episode of Malcolm in the Middle. I really like the style of humor.

    Anyway, one of the characters (Craig) said that he used the internet to develop a free travel system. The other character asked if he had hacked into the ticket website databse.

    Craig replied no, that that was illegal. He then described his "system", and I immediately thought of you guys.

    Basically, he goes into chatrooms in the cities he wants to go to. He then pretends to be "a blond 18 year old girl who is very confused about the changes going on in her body". He then gets someone in the chatroom to buy him a plane ticket to that city so that the guy can "help" her. He tells the guys to be waiting with red roses and a sign that said "Debbie." LOL.

    He gets the ticket. Uses it. And just walks by the guy who is stupidly standing there with flowers and a sign.

    Classic.

    The only problem I see is getting the tickets. Where do you have the guy mail them to? A P.O. Box doesn't work.

    How about this:

    Have the guy send it to your address, but with the bogus female name. This should still be delivered to you, even if the name doesn't match up.

    Now, if he ever comes to your address looking for "Debbie", you'll just act like you have no idea who "debbie". Invite him to ask your neighbors. No Debbie lives here.

    If he says that he sent a letter with a ticket to this address, just say that it probably wasn't delivered. And this could be true. The post office can choose not to deliver the mail if the name doesn't match with the addresses on file.

    But chances are he will never go to the address looking for Debbie. Especially if the age of Debbie isn't clearly defined (although there never seems to be a shortage of pedofiles for To Catch A Predator). You think some guy wants to risk snooping around for a potentially underaged female?

    No way.

    100Bones

    P.S. Although I shared this idea, I would never do it myself.

    Im not sure about in the US, but here in Canada, the ticket has the persons name on it and they check ID.

    Have to say its an out of the box idea, although it would be easier getting cash I can see why you are more likely to get a plane ticket!

    yea in the US you have a name on the ticket and they check id before you get on the plane. Same with most long distance trains like amtrak.

    yeh in the us the name on ticket must mach name on ID, but this is a great method, I'm sure if you use it you can get them to send cash or something.

    I used nearly this EXACT method, with a few twists, to get my girlfriend a bus ticket out here. :)

    it may work if you have a universal name, if your name is Jackie or Chris it could be either a boy or a girl name. I know a girl that is named Chris and and a guy who is named Jackie.

    It wouldn't work unless you have a unisex name. Having worked in the travel industry I know how strict they are about having the name on the ticket match the name on your passport. Even one letter off can cause problems.

    I can't really see this method working especially post 911. If nothing else it gave me a good laugh and I'm sure a few other people here too.

    it could work fine....have random female friend be the name on the ticket...let her know how you got the ticket, have her return/exchange said ticket....then get new ticket with credit received ..as long as the credit doesnt go directly back to cc of purchaser

    many of my female friends would laugh and think that a mark who was looking to pick up young girls was fair game to seperate from their money

    you can return amcrak tickets no problem...i freq buy tickets...mange to avaoid conductor for whole trip and then call up say i missed my train and get credited...then use credit for return trip

    as far as address goes...i move like very other year...all the addresses have postal forwarding...so i wouldnt have an issue with a dude showing up at my door looking for the girl anyway..(of course, a quick beating would be in order on principle if some pedo tried such nonsense anyway)

    Why are you guys so concerned with tickets? Put in enough work, and you can get them to send you cash, laptops, digital cameras, etc... It's basic ewhoring, and it's been done since the dawn of the modern internet. Not many people who do it talk about it, because A) It's considered scamming by many, and B) ewhores don't win popularity contests.

    As far as giving out your address, you need to set up a drop point, or...

    Pfft. Remy 1100 FTW.

    LOL, if he happened to come to the door looking for this girl just answer the door with a gun in hand and be like "are you that goddamn pervert that's been talking to my daughter on the internet", he would shit bricks. Age depending ofcourse, you would have to look old enough to be the father of an 18 yo.
