I was going to say, "Nope, never been scammed." But then I thought, "I probably have been scammed and just haven't figured it out yet." So, yeah, I guess.

If we use a loose definition of scam as any dishonest scheme, then I'm certain everyone has been scammed at some point in their life, whether it be a car dealer, repairman, salesman, girl scout, etc...you name it..

If we are just talking about scams that rise to the legal definition of fraud, then no. I'm pretty sure I haven't fallen for any of those.

I bought an expensive set of leather bound encyclopedias... WILLINGLY

I got scammed at a carnival pretty good once.
That person in a dress with the beard was no lady, I assure you.

Buying a box of bricks or rocks. I wonder if this is where the phrase, "dumber than a box of rocks" comes from. I guess we know where OP stands.

Your own greed did you in.....

Rather than buy one legit, you wanted a great "deal" on a possible stolen one....

Oldest scam ever played....

Yes, I've been scammed a few times in life... The last one took me (and unfortunately my wife) and roughly 22000 other suckers for BIG dollars
and it's not over yet... the ensuing bankruptcy continues to gnaw away at our money on continuing basis. (for those interested: Google LPI Life Settlements scam)

I'm not only embarrassed, I'm mad as Hell about the whole debacle.
