Scam help..!

Alright so I need to figure out how to send my professor a file that looks like a word file in every way, but doesn't open at all, or else has a screwed up format. Obviously I'm trying to scam myself an extension for this stupid paper.

Anybody got any ideas?

Ritika <-- please and thank you

isn't the onus on you to provide it in a recognizeable format?

if not, you should just record yourself saying "blah blah blah, look at me.. I'm a prof..I'm so smart.." and then rename it as a .doc file...unless his setup lets him auto-detect the format type. In which case, my procedure would probably not help you...extension wise.

send the text to me- I'll save it on my word perfect and will email it back to you- hopefully it won't open.

9 times out of ten word perfect files created and saved on my shit ass computer won't open anywhere else

(pm me if interested)

Ritika, an easy way to do this is to type a whole bunch of giberish in the length the paper is supposed to be.
Then highlight the text and change it all to symbols.

Send the file named just as it normally would be.
The prof will open the file, go "wtf?", and will send you a reply saying that the file is corrupt etc.

Don't reply back until Sunday, saying that you were away from your computer all weekend.
That will give you two more days to work on it.

what stormshadow said is yer best bet...

i say open a small mp3 file with WordPad or Works or whatever... and u will get all this code... then just save that file as a Paper.doc or whatever, and it will look like some computer error :p

just send an unfinished file (like only 2 pages of rough text...) and then email him on sunday saying oh shit.... I sent you the wrong unfinished copy. (explain you CC'd it to yourself and just opened it up (now) to double check.

I just finished my bussiness ethics class. ;) (within this class I switched the font on all my essays so they would look longer)

Just find a file that is a comparable size (ie not 2MB, just a few Kb in size) then rename it to something like mypaper.doc. Make sure you change the extention of it too and not just the name. When he opens this it will either be a bunch of giberish or the program will say that it can't open it.
