Showed up early for work (my first mistake) and had an email from my boss asking that I go purchase 5 $100 Google Play cards for a client. Seemed odd but, my boss has done stranger things. Responded and told him I'd head out as soon as our Walmart opened (my second mistake). While I was out buying the cards, my actual boss sent a voicemail to all employees stating his email had been hacked and that someone was sending out an email asking that Google Play cards be purchased for a client. When I got back and listened to the v/m, I turned around and went back to Walmart. Unfortunately, gift cards are non-refundable.

Once I realized I was victimized (can you be a victim when you're a dumbass? It's a rhetorical question. No need to respond.), I did engage my "boss" in email exchange wherein I told him I had the gift cards and would put them in his office mailbox. He responded asking that I scratch the back of the cards revealing the activation codes; take a picture of the backs and email it to him so that he could send it to the client as it was urgent. I said I thought it would make a better impression if the client came by the office and received them in person. What followed was about a 10 email back and forth wherein my "boss"became extremely agitated, leading to me telling him to go f#@% himself and quitting. Even with a fake boss, it felt pretty good. Not $500.00 good but good nonetheless.

So, I have 5 $100 Google Play gift cards that I have no use for and a bank account in dire need of a serious cash infusion. If anyone uses Google Play cards, I'll sell one or all of them for $90.00 a piece. Ship them to you via USPS Priority Mail.
