Lightbulb PWNED: Kid tries to pass off CLS 55 AMG as his own, gets caught

Filed under: Tuners, Etc., Mercedes Benz, AMG


Some people are just pathological. At first, it was amusing that Fresh C280, a member of the MDStreetScene forums, would claim to own a Mercedes CLS55 AMG. How a 19-year-old affords a car that normally retails for around $100,000 is the first thing that made everyone on the forum suspicious. A story about a digital camera becoming a sewage buoy was also an immediate head scratcher, since the pic he posted supposedly came from said camera. Further cementing the obvious dementia was the claim that the picture was taken during a dyno run in New York. It could be New York, except right now it's chilly early spring in the Empire State, and the dyno run picture clearly shows garage bays with the doors flung open and leaves on trees. It gets better as it becomes clear how many balls this kid's trying to juggle to hold up his story. There's a nice little synopsis that debunks the girlfriend angle - even though it's supposedly her car.

It didn't take long for total pwnage to occur when Fresh C280s fellow Maryland car enthusiasts did a little detective work. The car is actually owned by a CarDomain member named Xavier, who hails from Florida and showed up with proof of ownership around 30 pages in. All of the pictures posted to the MDStreetScene bulletin board were stolen from the actual owner's CarDomain page. This is weirder than the guy who thought up direct exhaust injection. The makings of a character study are all there - apparent delusional schizophrenia, a longing to be somebody, a sad little existence, and completely self-inflicted massive public humiliation. There's even a cameo by a famous lolcat. It doesn't get better than this, folks, the thread is only a day old so far. Check it out for yourself, it gets good around page 6. Oh, and Fresh C280's quote at the bottom of his posts is oddly prescient. Thanks for the tip, Terry!

I guess getting caught posting pilfered car PICTURES is better than getting caught for actually stealing said car . . .

As long as you're inclined to lie about what you've got , you may as well go for the best!

Is that anything like a McLaren? Maybe you can get Truckinik to post pictures of his Lambos, too!

I've got a souped up Toro Super Mulcher out in the garage . . . Gets pretty good mileage, too.

Can't believe I just read all 43 pages.. That's almost as good as the Mustang one, where he sold something and never delivered. They had his name, addy, parent's names, his high school, tons of info on him. I got to somewhere like page 30 and had to quit.
Internet Rules!!!
