South Carolina woman spends $180 for wooden Apple iPad
Lieutenant Tony Ivey, a public information officer at the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said that the men had taken a screenshot of an Apple iPad with the screen on, and pasted a copy of a Best Buy sales ticket on front. On the back, they pasted a cutout of the iconic Apple logo. The cops said that last year, some men were caught selling laptop boxes with phone books stuffed inside them, for the price of a real laptop computer.
If caught, the perps could face 90 days in jail and a fine not to exceed $1,000. A copy of the incident report taken by the police can be found at the sourcelink.

1) what kind of dumbass buys things from "guys on the street" and doesnt check it first?
2) you didnt think it was suspicious when they took $180 bucks for a "new" ipad that they would have just paid like 400-600 for?!?! lol

"Two men had approached her and offered her an Apple iPad for $300. When McDowell replied that she only had $180 on her, the men agreed to the price and *HANDED* her a FedEx box."
Not for nothing, but he was right..

Nah, she was quite smart! She saved herself a ton of money by talking the guys into giving her a 40% discount! :D

Why didn't she just turn around and sell it to someone else? Clearly, there's a lot of dumb people running around there...

All is not lost, she can keep it displayed in her home as a reminder of a product that will be extinct in about a year.

LMAO IF SHE WOULD HAVE HAD THE $300 LIKE THEY ASKED AT FIRST SHE MAY WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A REAL iPAD BUT SHE ONLY HAD $180 so SHE got $180 WORTH OF APPLE Ipad $300 would get you the apple and $180 GOT HER THE APPLE TREE STUMP "LITERALLY" LMAO

and its even funnier because more than likely if guys came up to her on the street the ipad mostly likely if it was real would have be "HOT" as in stolen, And she called the police it wouls have been funny if they would have arrested her for buying/or attempting to buy stolen goods.

And I will bet $500 that when the crooks are captured they will sue for the $180 they made and punitive damages in the amount of $100,000 for using the Apple logo without permission and for making the wooden block too much like the iPad
