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.
