It all took place in the U.K. when a man at Picadilly train station in Manchester, England was approached by a couple of men offering him a brand new Apple iPad for £250 ($390 USD). They told him that if he was interested in the deal, he should meet them behind a car park behind Market Street near Debenhams. So sure enough, the three met at the agreed upon location and the buyer forked over the £250 in cash. After turning over the box to the buyer, the sellers drove away, presumably in a hurry. The buyer opened the box and instead of finding a brand new iPad, he discovered a pile of potatoes.
We would normally remind you that when you purchase a device like an Apple iPad, you should only do so from a reputable seller. But we then remembered the mother that purchased a new Apple iPad for her daughter's birthday from Walmart last year only to find a stack of note pads in the box. So our tip for today is that no matter where you buy a new device, demand to see what is in the box before you pay.
