Great April's Fool on Cheapassgamer!

If you are a CAG member, check out the site today. I have to admit this gave me quite a shock. Already dozens of posts from folks saying they almost had a heart attack. lol

Re: Great April's Fool on Cheapassgamer!

I usually browse the site without signing in, so I didn't see what the big deal was.

Now I do.

My favorite takes me right to the forums. I would have missed it anyway if it weren't for this post.

Why would you even ask that Scott? We all know you've been selling your stolen shit here on DVDTalk. Why do you continue to peddle your stolen goods and then come in here and act like you've done nothing wrong? The nerve of some people.

It says on the main page

[Your Username] Under Investigation for Selling Stolen Goods
By CheapyD, Today
I felt it was important to alert the community that CAG [Your Username] is currently under investigation for selling stolen goods on our trading forum. All current transactions that involve [Your Username] should be terminated immediately.

I know its very shocking to hear these allegations as [Your Username] has previously been an upstanding member of our community, however certain evidence has come to light which cannot be ignored.

For more details, or if you have been a victim of [Your Username], please contact us at tradescam@cheapassgamer.com.
