    Wink Woman scammed into buying fake wooden iPad

    Woman buys fake, wooden iPad
    for $180
    Men scam woman in McDonald's parking lot

    SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. A woman at an area
    McDonald's thought she was getting an iPad at a bargain
    price, but instead she got a very expensive piece of wood .
    Ashley McDowell, 22, said she was getting food at about 10
    p.m . Monday when two men approached her in the parking
    lot. The men showed McDowell a new iPad, and told her that
    they had bought several of them in bulk at a good price and
    had them in FedEx boxes in the trunk of their car.
    The men offered to sell McDowell one of the iPads for $300 .
    She told them that she only had $180 , and they agreed to sell
    her one for that amount.
    The men gave McDowell a FedEx box. Once at home, she
    opened it and found a piece of wood painted black with an
    Apple logo on it.
    McDowell said the men were in a white Chevy Impala with no
    rims and untinted windows. She said one of the men had a
    gold tooth.

    Doesn't this happen year after year with all of the snazzy new technologies of the day. I remember it was bricks in VCR boxes, rocks or bagged sand in Xbox boxes, etc. Always someone pulling the scam an always someone falling for it.

    I'm surprised they went through the trouble of painting the wood and putting the logo on it..

    Sorry, this idiot deserves what she got.

    I must admire the scammers' creativity.
