    A South Carolina woman thought she was buying an iPad for dirt-cheap, but ended up with a block of wood. According to a police report, two men approached 22-year-old Ashley McDowell in a McDonald's parking lot to sell her a new iPad for $300. They explained they were able to offer her a discounted price because they bought the iPad in bulk. McDowell made the purchase after negotiating the men down to $180 (a steal compared to paying at least $500 in the store). But when McDowell came home and opened her new gadget, which was in a FedEx box, she found nothing more than an iPlank: a dressed-up block of wood. The "tablet" screen had black tape around the perimeter and small square-shaped iPad icons such as Safari, mail, and photos taped to the front. After discovering the fake, McDowell called the police and filed a report.

    I use to know a guy who sold PC's out of his car. Just random parts listed as mid-high end PC's. Some didn't even have an OS are had missing parts inside. He did end up getting busted, but seriously. The stories he told us, and how many customers he had. Not a lot of smart shoppers out there.
