People really really really want an iPad. They want one so badly that they open themselves up to scams. One woman from Arlington was deceived recently when she was fueling her car at a gas station. A stranger approached her and offered to sell her an iPad that he claimed was originally worth $800. The price was $200, so the woman took the offer and drove home.
She was surprised to find a tablet-sized mirror that had been duct-taped with an Apple logo on it. Now she has some good advice for all of us. “Don’t buy nothing on the streets from nobody.” If only she had heeded that warning.
The police said that last year similar incidents were reported. “Crimes of this kind always increase leading up to Christmas,” a police spokesperson said. Always look before you buy people.
