Woman Buys Wooden iPad, Winds Up Counterfeit

You may find this hard to believe, but when you buy big-ticket items at a discounted price from people in fast food parking lots, you MAY be getting scammed.

That turned out to be the case for poor Ashley McDowell who bought what she believed to be a perfectly functioning, legal iPad from two scam artists in a McDonald’s parking lot in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  McDowell realized when trying to boot up her new iPad that what she had actually purchased was, in fact, wood painted to look like Apple’s tablet.

 

Spartanburg police are asking citizens to keep their eyes peeled for two black men, one sporting a shiny golden tooth, in a white Impala.  Any leads are accepted at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
