If you're bored go on Facebook and convince people you want to buy their £5 notes. That's what 21-year-old Josh Grant has been doing to amuse himself, and it seems to be an amusing way to kill a few hours.

Here are the messages he's been sending people, who are trying to sell £5 on Facebook for £300 on a group he set up called "3 New 5 Pound notes £3000".

First, he lures them in by haggling, convincing them he's the real deal...


Then he arranges a time, and checks with his accountant that he's making a good deal here...

And delivers the punchline...

Undeterred, the seller asks which ones are worth a lot. To which there's an obvious answer...

The messages are going down a storm on Twitter, though as one of his friends put it...
