Florida Scammers Fool Target And Make Off With $6,000 In Merchandise

This is crazy. Police are on the hunt for 2 guys who visited over a dozen Target stores and bought computer hard drives. They then returned all of them AFTER they filled the boxes with Play-Doh and kept the hard drives. They're valued at just over $6,000.

ABC Action News reports they are looking for 36-year-old Jose Rivera Jr. of Winter Park and 32-year-old Rainer Bentulan of Orlando.

It seems they got away with it because they appear to have gutted the insides of the hard drives and put the Play-Doh-filled outer shells of the hard drives back in the box. So customer service employees at Target probably peeked inside and felt the weight and issued refunds.

I can't believe they got away with this... let alone 16 TIMES!? Yikes. That Play-Doh smell would've tipped me off!

Ready for the ultimate irony? I saw a tweet that Play-Doh is on sale at Target this week. D'oh!
