Willie D: Not a licensed Apple retailer, it turns out
Speaking of bald headed hoes, here's a few things that crossed my mind when I read the other day that Willie D got busted for scamming people on eBay:
1) I hope they bury his ass under the jail.
I know it's not kosher in the black community to wish jail on people, and of course I don't feel sorry for anyone dumb enough to get scammed by Willie D on eBay... but I fucking hate scammers. As far as I'm concerned, people who try to rip people off the way Willie D supposedly did are way worse than people who just run up on you with a gun and take your wallet or whatever. That goes for eBay scammers, the Africans who send out those emails (is that you, K'Naan?), people who sell Primerica Insurance, so on and so forth. I've never even been scammed by anyone. (You gotta have money in order to be robbed.) It just chaps my ass, for whatever reason. No fishsticks. I was watching Bill Maher the other day, and he raised the excellent point that people in this country are much more adamant about trying to rip each other off than people in other countries. I don't know if it's capitalism or what. It's too bad Barack Obama isn't really a socialist.
2) Willie D must have come up with this one himself.
Or could it be that he clicked on one of those banners on World Star where it says some ignorant-looking kid can teach you how to make $10,000 a month, from the comfort of your own home? I'll admit, I've been tempted to click on those links, just to find out what the actual scam involves. Maybe the Smoking Gun will conduct an investigation. Anyway, who would be dumb enough to cut a check to Willie D, because he needs you to pay him outside the context of eBay, PayPal, etc., which is set up that way precisely so that you don't get ripped off. I mean, you'd have to think that plenty of people have tried this already, and they probably got busted, too. This crime sounds like some real crackhead shit, in that it's only a matter of time until you get busted.
3) Willie D is going down for this one.
At MTV News, it says he could get up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine. Not the time or a fine, mind you, in case he actually made any real money from "Mind Playing Tricks on Me." Even if he did, he can kiss that goodbye. It just goes to show you what happens when you fuck with a TI's money. Remember that guy who kept going on World Star saying he killed Stack Bundles, and that he was gonna kill Wendy Williams. Of course, no one gave a shit. Then he had the sheer balls to say that he put poison in some baby food, and he was locked up before the weekend was over. I'm pretty sure they threw the book at him, too. To think, Willie D could've broken into my house and stole all of my shit (all $1,000 worth), and he probably wouldn't have even gone to jail. 5-0 around here doesn't give a shit about anything that doesn't raise money for local gov't.
4) It's too bad Willie D wasn't prominent enough to get down with a scam that's legal.
Two words, two syllables: Rush Card. Russell Simmons doesn't even get out of bed in the morning for the amount of money Willie D was making from those iPhones.
