TEXAS: A woman who bought iPad for $200 from Texas swindler finds out she was conned into buying a mirror.
Jalonta Freeman paid $200 for the tablet in a false scheme that experts say it tends to pick up during the holidays, reports NY Daily News.
The incident occurred when a stranger approached several women hanging around in a parking lot of a gas station with iPads and laptops.
He offered the women up to 75 per cent discounts, which the women could not resist. The stranger told Freeman, he would be willing to sell her an $800 iPad for a heavy discount.
Freeman was just one of the women who thought it was too good an offer to pass and she paid the man who handed over the 'iPad' to her and drove off.
Once she tore open the packaging, she realised that the iPad was just a plain old mirror.
In her excitement, she did not even notice the swindler's license plate number and the police was able to do little without the vital information.
An upset Freeman told the daily that she would never buy anything from a street vendor ever again.
