iPad con artists with artistic leanings sought by cops
We’ve all been duped at some point or another – it’s a horrible feeling and there should probably be some kind of law against it. But has there ever been a stupider tale of duping than the one involving stupid American Ashley McDowell?
Two men in a South Carolina McDonald’s car park approached Ashley and offered to sell her an iPad for $300. But Ashley only had $180 on her – no matter, as the men were happy to accept that. It was only when she got home and opened the box that she realised that there was a block of wood inside the box.
This is where the stupidity envelopes in on itself. Yes, there was a block of wood inside the iPad box, but... it had been cack-handedly made to look like an iPad.
Look at it. There's an Apple logo stuck on it and the con men had even painted on a screen and some fake icons. Just what is the frigging point of THAT? Adding insult to injury?
Humans. Sometimes we just don’t deserve our humanness.
