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.

    Are you sure it's fake? It looks to have full Apple functionality?

    You'd have to be a bot of a dick not to check the contents even works before buying it. Idiot.

    You'd have to be a knob not to check it worked or wasn't in there. Silly bitch.

    I'd have a shred of sympathy for her if they'd shown her a working ipad and then switched it for the eco-version, but if I'd paid $180 without even checking what I had brought I'd be too embarrased to report it

    I reckon its one of those new Android tablets. Another lawsuit from Apple coming up?

    Well, you have to be a bit of a fucking idiot to buy an iPad in the first place...

    You are all cunts. Posted from my wooden apple iPad.
