Did you buy an iPad in the parking lot?

Fake iPads

Apple has a lot of interesting and attracting products to choose from, and the iPad is one of the best tablets out there, and the only one from Apple. So there is on stopping for Apple lovers from buying this. But there are some people who, even though are Apple fans, will not be able to buy an iPad because of its price.

So, Apple has some offers for people like this, like discounts and all. Apple also offers refurbished post PC products for pretty low cost. But what if someone offers you a brand new iPad for just $300? That’s the price for a refurbished iPad. Will you not be tempted to buy one? I will certainly be. I might even buy this one if it were inside an Apple Store, but not out in a parking lot.

If you are laughing, dont, because this has happened a few times in the North-Texas city, and MacRumors has published the following police report about the same.

“A car load of two or three males will pull up to someone at a convenience store or shopping center parking lot and it’s “Psst, hey buddy. Want to buy an Apple iPad or MacBook? They will tell the victim they are for sale for $300 each or both for $500. The Apple products are actually painted wood or loose leaf note books with the Apple logo on top and wrapped in bubble wrap. They are in a Fed Ex or Best Buy box and sealed up with tape. By the time the victim figures out the purchase wasn’t what they bargained for, the crooks are long gone.

Grand Prairie has had over a dozen such crimes committed since January of this year. The suspects have been mostly black males. However one offense involved a black female as well. The vehicles used vary in most cases. There appears to be several groups of thieves and sometimes the suspects never even get out of the car.

The public should be advised that it is unwise to purchase anything from the trunk of a car, no matter how good the deal seems.”

So even though its a pretty item, dont buy an iPad for $300 if it is being sold out in the parking lot.
