German Police Investigate Potato Computer Scam


MS_POTATO-small.jpgBERLIN (Reuters) - German police are investigating after an angry man returned a computer he had just bought saying it was packed with small potatoes instead of computer parts.

The store replaced the computer free of charge but became suspicious when he returned a short time later with another potato-filled computer casing, police in the western city of Kaiserslautern said on Monday.

"The second time he said he didn't need a computer any more and asked for his money back in cash," a police spokesman said.

Police are now investigating the man for fraud.


They've got some pretty sharp sales people in Kaiserslautern...


This man is brilliant!!!

Now I now why my computer at work is so slow.

Instead of an operating system it must have a idahoing system!!

Ya, we power our system with a Yukon gold and some copper wire while we kick back mit a little schnitzle. Das is gut!

I guess if it crashes you get mashed potatoes

Ya gotta love the intelligence level of the German population.
