"Opening up the daily paper, you decide to catch up on the local news. When you check the crime log, you notice a familiar name: yours. The log says you’re wanted for a crime you didn’t commit. Suddenly, you hear three loud knocks on the door, followed by a man yelling, “Police! Open up!” What did the paper say and how are you going to get out of this?"
What would you do if you were offered a sum of money to look after a brief case for two days? There could be anything in the case but the money would make your life so much easier. What harm could taking the money and the case do? Couldn't hurt could it?
