Trust no one.
If you were trying to sell your washing machine over the Internet, you'd probably heed this Facebook warning:Pretty slick scam, right? Good thing someone got a photo of the guy; he'll have a hard time pulling that off again. Wait... what? Two different guys are running this clothes-cleaning con? I just find that so hard to believe. Come on, no way. Where did that candid shirtless photo come from? If he laundered his clothes, why isn't he wearing them? You've got to be shitting me! This is an issue in Australia, too? Starting to think humanity has hit rock bottom. Oh, OK—I get it now. People are just trolling friends and/or enemies by posting their photo alongside a copy-pasted cautionary note about how they swindled people out of a free wash! That's actually pretty funny—unless you're trying to sell your washer-dryer.
Or until someone tries the scam for real.You know what? Even considering this is all a big joke, I just don't trust these dudes. God knows they'll have to do a load sometime.
Watch this washing machine chaotically bounce on a trampoline
Some sights are just so captivating that you can’t turn away. A washing machine with a brick inside of it while hopping around on a trampoline is one of those scenes.
