I knew two people who got scammed by the white van.
One them was a coworker that showed up to work with the biggest smile on his face followed by "You'll never believe the deal I just got on a pair of speakers" His smile quickly vanished when I was able to verbally re-enact the whole transaction. Last time I saw him, they were being used in his garage.
The other guy bought them thinking they would make a good birthday gift for his dad. He didn't have the cash on him, so the white van followed him to the bank. The warranty info, along with a bogus phone number and address was written on the back of his ATM receipt. I think he ended up gifting the speakers even after finding out the truth about them.
