iPods For $4.99? Target Didn't Think So Either

Every once in a while somebody comes around wanting to scam someone else. Usually it's something stupid that gets them caught and thrown in jail. In this case, we have a 19-year-old gentleman who decided to use the program BarCode Magic to create custom iPod barcodes that made them drop in price...a lot. So it should come as no suprise that when the $4.99 iPod and other insanely low-priced electronics came up, Target caught on and busted the teenager on the spot. Next time try moving that decimal point over one and you might have a better shot, buddy.
