Australian woman spends $1500 on two iPhones, gets two boxes with actual apples

 

08.05.13_technewsrprt_img_stories_regina-timothy_appleAn Australian woman reportedly received real Apples instead of the iPhones she thought she was purchasing from a seller met through online classifieds site Gumtree.

It happened to a woman in Brisbane who. She. A public place, good idea.

The 21-year-old from Brisbane was surfing the online classified website Gumtree, placed a “Want to Buy” ad saying she was interested in purchasing a few iPhones.  Another woman contacted her saying she had two iPhones for her and they agreed to meet up at a McDonald’s.

The 21-year-old paid $US1500 for the two “iPhones”, which came in new packaging so she never checked inside. When she went home and opened the iPhone box, she found apples of the fruit variety and not Apple smartphones when she returned home.

A statement from a local police official who sought to warn others to be wary of such scames indicated that the buyer believed she was getting a pretty good deal on the phones.
