Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

The Reason this was such an epic scam is because the guy who initiated it was a well respected regular on the forums, just goes to show you that even after 2000 posts, a regular might still scam his fellow forum members.
Basically Read first page,then skip to last,and you get the jest.
