As reported on Friday, Freeman was at a gas station, when suddenly a man drove up to her and offered her an $829 iPad for a mere $200. All right, we doubt he gave her the full amount, including the extra $29 (a 64GB iPad with cellular functionality is the top-of-the-line iPad, and sells for exactly $829). What a bargain, right?
Well, we'd never go for it. However, Freeman did. She also did so without taking a close look at the merchandise. "He was, like, OK, I gotta hurry up and go and stuff."
She looked at it later. It was actually a mirror. The back of the "iPad" looked vaguely like an iPad, but the front was covered by a piece of paper which, when pulled back, revealed nothing but a mirror.
Freeman told KXAS-TV (in the embedded video), "That's messed up. That's so wrong. I would never do anybody like that. Get a job."
Wait, Jalonta. This is the person's job. Haven't you ever seen the movie, "The Grifters?"
At any rate, this is not the first such scam that a would-be iPad owner has fallen for. Last year, at a South Carolina McDonald's, a woman thought she was buying an iPad, but instead ended up with a $180 piece of wood.
