thieves don't stop at the small things

While I cannot 100% verify this story, I have heard it making the rounds (and seen some pictures) that certain members of 4chan are scamming free ps3s out of certain retail stores via hacked-up "manufacturer's coupons".

This isn't an "it's not theft, you still have it!" situation, kids.

Quick searches don't turn me up much information on this particular situation, but plenty of other stories of gamers gloating about how they managed to get systems, games, or points at way under cost with obviously fake coupons. And others insisting that they've done nothing wrong, and that it's clearly the store who's breaking the law by accepting their fraudulent coupons, not them. Sigh.
