Woman pays $1330 for apples thinking she was buying two iPhones

0. phoneArena 04 Aug 2013, 22:31 posted on

At over $650 apiece, these have to be among the most expensive apples ever sold to an individual. Unfortunately for the buyer, she thought she was purchasing something a bit pricier than a ripe red McIntosh – an Apple iPhone. Yup, it is another scam story involving a mischievous seller, a gullible buyer, and a sleek, shiny Apple product...

why LOL? a typical iPhone user

sometimes I think an iPhone's iOS is just some BIOS like its users:

goo (dot) gl/Wlry5S

She probably didn't notice anything was amiss until she turned Apple maps on.

what are you talking about?, I used paypal all the time and they have refunded me when I didnt get my purchase on ebay, there is seller protection as well as buyer protection if you follow the steps you should be covered.

We do! My wife uses a iP5 and I take the piss and call her nasty degrading and lowlife humiliated names that she really kicks off, goes mad! Then I ask "why the hell use Apple products if you can't take the humiliation" she says nothing....?
GOD what a disgrace she is to society! I really feel so disgusted and shamed when she pulls out her iPhone5

Smurf, do you honestly think Troll has a wife? C'mon bro, who would talk to their wife like that over a phone, or slander her as a woman, and disrespect her just for attention and green thumbs from these fanboy fools?

shows what 3rd class mind you have there no respect to others yet ask for lot . what makes to think anyone will listen to you after you bash their choice of freedom.
in real life a real "lowlife humiliated" person is one who never respect others for their choice of freedom yet wants his choice as need of others.
and judging by your comments i doubt you ever had a friend let alone the girlfriend or wife.

damn impossible for even stay around a mad man like you.how can someone possibly marry you.

You know what they say; an apple a day gives a doctor a holiday.

But in this case, two apples that day gave the scammer a holiday. :))

A good reverse example of this would be "P-p-p-powerbook!"

Something like this happened at our store once. Someone bought a big stereo system, took it out of the box, put a few cinder blocks in its place, and brought the box back and returned it for a full refund. They opened the box on the bottom so it looked like it was still sealed. The associates involved only found out later when they went to put it back on the shelf and when tilting the handtruck back, felt the blocks shift.

I never understand why people NEVER open the box. I always do when I buy phones from Craigslist.

It's leaving me wanting to scream at that woman!
Not my money but her stupidity is nauseating.
I mean, she's there...and the seller is there. Why not take a quickie look just to make sure? She's paying heavy money...
Just classic salted stupidity.
