Last time I'll ever try to do the right thing.

About two years ago, I bought Windows XP from a seller on Amazon for $100. I got an obviously pirated CD. I contacted the authorities, and seller. The seller gave me my money back, but I was pissed, I hate these crooks. Seems I was too pissed for my own good.

At the request of the FBI, I testified against this guy last September. This guy has sold tons of pirated software, and was facing a maximum sentance of 75 years.

Guess what I just got in the mail from Allegheny County Jail? Yep, a summons to appear. Seems that convicted software pirate, [REDACTED] is suing me for $4875.

There 16 paragraphs in the complaint. Very briefly:

Count - 1: Fraud

- I didn't return the pirated CD to [REDACTED], I sent it to the FBI. With [REDACTED] fingerprints all over it. [REDACTED] said this cost him $175 for the cost of the software.

- [REDACTED] said I made false statements about him to federal agencies and thereby damaged Banks reputation in the amount of $4700.

A lesson for all, I hope. The system is a scam. Never do the right thing. Better to let the crimminals go free.
