PSA: Don’t buy an iPad from a dude at a gas station

The News 5 video clip below tells the unfortunate story of an Arlington, Texas woman who bought an iPad from a man who approached her while she was pumping gas. She was excited to get a good deal on a hot electronic device right before the holiday shopping season. After handing over $200 for the tablet device, the seller hurried off while she opened her package to see what she had just bought. Much to her surprise (and not ours), the iPad in the box was a mirror wrapped in paper to look like an iPad. [Via Channel 5 NBCDFW and Tweaktown]

    Paying a little stupid tax it looks like. If you dont have enough sense to check it out before you buy, then you kind of deserve what you get.
