FML Staff Sergeant - Criminal Investigations at Ottawa Police Service
FML Staff Sergeant - Criminal Investigations at Ottawa Police Service –
yea, he came by today to pickup his ps3 which i changed the hard drive for and charged him 80$, 60$ for the hard drive, 20$ for the work.
Um initially i couldn't fix it, then he called me to pick it up as someone else said they could and said the drive was having issues. So i fixed it and called him over to pick it up. Then i told him i had chips that allow ps3 games to be copied to the hard drive and play them without the disk.. (silly me, i didnt know who he was). when he gave an akward look i changed the topic to saying the device is blank, and he would have to flash the file to make it work like that otherwise it's a development kit which is used for other things, but i would provide him instructions. and of course I dont sell copied games ( he agreed and said of course). Again awkward look to me and i said, never mind about it. when he was about to leave because he didnt expect me to fix it, he didnt have any cash, so he would write me a check, and gave me his card. I saw it and acted like i knew what to expect(i really didnt) it said (name ) Staff Sergeant - Criminal Investigations at Ottawa Police Service. I was like o shit in my head, and kept a cool head. He wrote me his cell which i already have and said he would mail me the check in a few days, call him when i received it. and i told him have a great day, and he was driving an undercover car too. fml.
So moral of the story.
1. im stupid and should look before i leap as the when i saw him I knew something was up.
2. im doing this for cash.
3. yea what the f should i do, i have a shitload of games on my pc lol, should i move the pc to another my work? or the drives, delete all my meganfox, ****star ****,gay ****, animal ****, animated ****, trogdor **** and encrypt my hard drives?
4. anyone had similar occurrence with a law officer and nothing happened to them?? cause im about to shit my pants XD.
thanks for reading and understanding that im mostly ****ed.
well you can:
a) invest in pointsec and encrypt everything
b) securely wipe everything (to DoD spec)
c) burn everything
d) leave as is and hold on to the seat of your pants
seriously though, i wouldn't be too concerned because you did state that the device was blank and he would need to do what he wants with it. simply stating freely available information is not against the law. as long as your dongles are not flashed you are okay.
even if he had a hidden camera, i highly doubt you are in jeopardy of being served a search warrant.
hum ok, thanks for the reply makes me feel a little better. I think im a keep my trogdor **** cause that what makes me wake up every morning. but yea. thanks again.
Lol, Police are usually one of the worst when it comes to stuff like this. I know back in the day when i modded ps2's i did a load of consoles for this one bloke and it was only after he picked up the 20th i noticed he had a coppers uniform on without the epilets (PC number etc).
Turns out he was getting all these machines chipped for his friends at work and if i wanted any games he could get them for me. I politely declined He still brings me stuff to mod (Xbox's/psp's etc)
Just cuz he works for the police doesn't mean he's gonna bust you. But it's always advisable to be careful in those kinds of instances.

oh ****, i have plants in the basement, forgot to fabreeze the house before i invited the inspector in, gotta clean that up other wise i'll really be for it XD.
seriously, thanks guys, now to continue staring at pictures XD.
I worked for police and they are as bad as anyone here.
They openly do drugs and there friends do as well.
That says it all.
The police are there to enforce the law, meaning they pick and choice when to enforce it.
They are law enforcement not police, remember that.
Police are as bad as any criminal out there
I wouldnt worry too much dude.
Ottawa, i know the city quite well :P
Canada is not the fear mongering USA, not even close
Just tell him they are backordered forever and that will be end it.
You have nothing to worry about, if my friend can get caught with a BIG bag of weed by the Ottawa cops and basically get off with a fine, you ain't got shit to worry about
Selling a dev board unflashed is not illegal here.
Look we have Ottawamods and a few other modders that have been around for over 10 years here, no trouble at all.
You did not offer to sell any pirated games, you'll be ok
2 of my buddies are Ottawa cops, if you are truly crapping yourself, i can ask them but seriously, they are going to laugh and say this guy is worrying about nothing
