IPad. Cheap. Really.


A couple of swindlers in South Carolina put a lot of effort into scamming a woman who thought she was buying an iPad- cheap.


 According to a sheriff's report posted on the Smoking Gun website, the woman, 22, was outside of a McDonald's Monday when she was approached by two men, one of whom had a gold tooth.


 She says they showed her an iPad, said they bought a bunch of them in bulk and offered her a tablet for $300. The woman said she only had $180 so they took it.


The report says when the woman got home, she opened the FedEx box and found a piece of wood painted black with an Apple logo.


The "screen"-- was framed with black tape and had some fake iPad icons on the bottom.
