    At this point, just be amazed when you meet an non-stupid person.

    It is really stupid, but the article says they showed her an actual iPad and said they got them for a good price and had a bunch of them in FedEx boxes in their trunk. She bought it with the box closed thinking she was getting what they showed her, which was a real iPad. Yes, really stupid, but I know quite a few people that would fall for this scam.

    When someone approaches you in the McDonald's parking lot at 10 at night????? No, that's epic maroon land to not even open the box before handing over the money.

    I feel sorry for her. I mean really, having to go through life that freaking stupid has got to suck.

    ^^On the bright side, maybe she's too stupid to know how stupid she is?

    Buyer beware! She should have known that it is never a good idea to buy anything out of the trunk of a car. D'uh!

    ^ IDK I have gotten some good stuff from the trunks of people's cars... LOL

    I do remember when this started in the VCR days. They showed it on the news and the following weekend we were in Manhattan and were approached by a few guys at the South Street Seaport. We just laughed at them and stood there telling everyone around that the boxes were filled with bricks. They got mad at our drunk asses.

    Two guys approach me in a parking lot at 10 p.m., I'm sure as shit not telling them that I've got $180 on me - I'm rolling up the windows, locking the door and driving away. She's lucky they gave her a piece of wood and didn't just snatch the money.

    Laurent - that just made me laugh out loud! I know what you are saying but it still struck me as very funny. I'm sure she's thankful she got the painted block of wood for her $180. LMAO. It would have been so insulting if they had just taken her money.

    yeah, I generally don't do business with gold-toothed men in McDonald's parking lots past 8:30 pm.

    Idiocracy is here.

    This is kind of OT, but it reminds me of going to the clubs in DC when I was young. There would be these homeless people "guarding" the parking lots (which were really areas where an existing structure had been torn down). These lots were illegal to park in, but for $5 the homeless people would act as a valet of sorts and look after your car. Sometimes the lot would get full and they would leave and all of the cars would get towed. Sometimes people would actually give them their keys so they could move the cars if parking enforcement moved in. It was kind of funny.

    Horribly insulting! Especially if they'd have given her a cracked skull before relieving her of the $180.
