Wooden iPads and Paper Laptops
You’ve probably heard now about the woman from Spartenburg, South Carolina who paid $180 for an iPad in a McDonald’s car park. When she got home, she opened the package to find it was made from wood and she’d been scammed.
When the con artists felt the need to make the iPad look like that is beyond me. Was it meant to actually fool her? Or were they just rubbing salt in the woman’s wound?
Weird thing is, the same swindlers (or one’s matching their description) showed up in the same city and pulled the same scam again, this time scamming the victim into buying a $250 laptop that turned out to be made of paper.
I would have paid $250 if the paper laptop looked like this.
Are Spartenburg people really gullible or are their con artists just really ballsy?
