    Hi guys, thought id share one of my offline blackhat methods. It's not technically speaking "marketing".. but there wasn't a section for offline blackhat.

    This is what i call the 50 gram scam! as a smoker myself there's nothing i like more than free tobacco (Or at least very cheap tobacco!) so heres a little method i've been using for a long time.

    The fact that i travel around a lot in my job greatly helps me pull this off, since you cant really do it to the same shop more than 1 or 2 times, you can generally get away with doing it in supermarkets a bit more.

    When I'm traveling to see clients I'm always in a suit and tie, and generally smart and presentable. Basically what I'm saying is i don't look like a benefit seeking scruff.

    Step 1, buy a 12.5G pouch of tobacco from somewhere (not the place your about the scam!)

    Step 2, Go to buy your tobacco (supermarkets work best) and make sure you have the 12.5G pouch in your pocket.

    Step 3, Ask for a 50G of the same tobacco, pay for it and walk towards the door, put in in your pocket, and then pull out the 12.5G pouch. Inspect it, and with an audible gasp turn around and head back to the counter.

    Step 4, Kick up a fuss, wave your receipt around and generally make the cashier feel like a bit of a prat, if they put up some resistance demand to speak to the manager.

    Step 5, Enjoy your 37.5G of free tobacco!

    I've never had this fail on me, you need to look smart and respectable, otherwise they will just call your bluff.

    Have fun and happy smoking!

    thinking about it, I would actually just walk off if I get a smaller packet, or just go back and buy another 50 gram if I'm so obsessed with the 50g pack.

    ps- I blackhat well enough that I don't need to roll my own ciggs...and Marlboro comes best only in one form.

    It's just a method of getting stuff free, i never said you have to go out and do it, just contributing something thats all. If you dont like it, fair play go smoke your legit Marlboro elsewere.

    Lol funny shit, just for a few bucks you can end up in a big problem. Why don't just go rob the whole supermarket and you will have tons of kgs of tobacco!

    Try the same trick with a pot dealer and see if it works without getting shot.

    What do you think methods such as Cookie Stuffing are? that's right, stealing. I don't see anybody kicking up a fuss about it in the CS section.
    Maby it is a bit of a stupid method for some people, as i said before, don't like it, don't do it. It really is that simple.

    people who uses CS to get comission isnt stealing because the another part dont get hurt. do what you are doing for just few dollars looks like a psycho problem.

    On second thought...If you find this article interesting and it appeals to you.
    Things i learned at age 10:
    Go to your local retail supercenter.
    Search the isles for open/scratched/dented items under $100
    Simply pick item up and walk to the customer service desk.
    Let out the good ole distress gasp (i hear that works well)
    Exclaim how the product was falty and you would like a refund.
    I know what you are thinking. (NO RECIEPT)
    This is o.k these people love giving out gift cards.(its like monopoly money to them)

    AND IF YOU'RE LUCKY.....They might let you use your gift card on Cigarettes.

    Hope this helps. Anyone need to know how to get a 1992 or later model chevrolet.....Hit me up.

    Sometimes it's easier to make money using your brain.
    AND I HOPE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS SARCASM WHEN THEY READ IT.
