2 things

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..

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