At a train station in Sydney, Australia, an intelligent rich man was awaiting his upper class rail transport. He was sorting through his wallet and pulled out credit cards, receipts, and $200 in cash.

An egotistical scam artist (and a talented one at that) approached the man and said to him, "I'll bet you, on all the money in your wallet, that I can get a packet of chips out of that snack machine without inserting any money!"

The rich man, who was intrigued by this 'talent', readily agreed.

The scam artist walked over to the snack dispenser, stuck his hand up through the compartments, and a chip packet fell out.

The rich man was amazed, but being a faithful businessman, stuck to his word, yet the scam artist walked off without a penny.
