There is, apparently, no limit to human stupidity.
I give you a doctor (a doctor!!!!) in the north Indian city of Meerut who paid Rs 2.6 crore/$348,770/£269,424 to buy a magical Aladdin’s lamp. Complete with a resident genie, of course, who would make all his wishes come true.
Initially Dr. Khan wasn’t at all worried when he stumped up a load of moolah and was then told to put his magic lamp away in a box for 2 years & not touch it.
(And this man is a DOCTOR?! Supposedly a man of science?! Jeez!)
Anyway, the good doctor did eventually get suspicious and went to the cops.
Here you go, from the Times of India:
Being charitable, yeah, obviously I hope this gullible man gets his money back.
But if I were one of his patients, I might perhaps feel a change of doctor would be advisable…
