A Texas Woman Purchases A Fake iPad At A Gas Station [VIDEO]


With the holidays rapidly approaching we offer you this consumer alert. Be very careful what you purchase from strangers on the street this holiday season. Not everything you think you may be buying on the street is “legit.”

A woman in North Texas was scammed out of $200 when she purchased what she thought was an Apple iPad. In actuality what she got was a mirror wrapped up to look like the gadget.

The woman in this video was at a gas station in Texas when she approached by a stranger offering to sell her an iPad for just $200. With the holidays approaching, the woman thought this was a great deal, that until she opened up the package. As she and her sister opened up the package, after the man left of course, they found that they had been taken advantage of. What the ladies actually bought for $200 was a mirror wrapped up in paper to make it look like an iPad.

We warn you, its probably never a good idea to purchase anything from strangers on the street. If the deal seems to be “too good,” you should really reconsider the offer. Sure, at times the purchase may sound like a deal, but be warn you.
