There’s no shortage of scammers out there in the world. Recently, the police in Central Valley are warning electronics consumers to beware of scam artists who are selling iPads, tablets and other electronics at lower prices, but these things are not what they seem. They are floor tiles and painted pieces of wood which looks like the real products.
The incidents took place in Ceres, a Stanislaus County city south of Modesto where some people are offering electronics at low prices. Many buyers did get excited and paid hundreds of dollars for the products they just saw in the box, and took them home to find out they are floor tiles, and not the real iPads.
At first glance, these things does look real as they are bubble wrapper with an Apple logo and name on the back of the tile. For those who didn’t hold the thing in hand were surprised when they went home with the packages. Additionally, the same people who approached customers on the streets also offered users with TVs, which were actually painted pieces of wood.
You may come across places where you can find electronics or any other good for a price which is way lower than the official retail price of the product. But remember, cheap is not always good, and may cost you more than you can think of. Just stay alert and make sure you can check the product properly before purchasing them.
