Lee is appreciative, not realizing that the present is stolen. The next day Lee sees Scott, another friend. Lee knows Scott has a stereo and is good with electronics. Lee mentions that he has been given a stereo for his birthday present from a mate and asks Scott to come over and help install it. “Sure,” Scott says with a sigh. “You look down mate what up?” Lee asks. “Oh, some idiot has busted into my car,” Scott says Oh man, what did they get?” Lee asks? “My Stereo, you know the one my bro got me from Argos last year.” Later, Lee starts thinking about how odd it is that Scott’s stereo was stolen just at the time Dan gave him one. Lee gets suspicious and calls Dan. Sure enough, Dan confesses that he stole it, and that the car he stole it from was actually Scott’s.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
