In South Carolina, a 22 year old woman was approached by 2 men in a McDonalds parking lot at 10:00 pm. They told her that they had several iPads that they got for a great price. They were selling them...out of their trunk. They offered her one for $300. She told them that she only had $180 on her, so they agreed to give her one at that price.
They gave her a FedEx box. She went home with her McDonald's and "iPad". When she opened the box all she found was a piece of wood painted (badly) to look like an iPad.
She described one of the men as having a gold tooth. They were driving a white Chevy Impala with no rims.
Wow. Just wow. Now, maybe it is just because I grew up on the south side of Chicago, but really? I will not judge. However, I am going to give the moral of this story. There are a couple actually:
- Do not buy anything from anyone in the parking lot of McDonalds... especially if he has a gold tooth.
- If you do give in and let #1 slip past you, look in the box, verify what is in there and that it works before you pass over any money.
- You might want to do #2 before you even tell them how much cash you have. Because you know, they could just taken it!
