I am not sure what should have tipped off Ashley McDowell in Spartanburg, South Carolina that something was not quite right about the men selling her an iPad. First there was the price: $180. Then there was the location: a McDonald’s parking lot. Then there was the fact that salesmen were selling the iPads and computers out of the trunk of their rimless Impala. She was still surprised, however, to discover that her new iPad was solid wood.
The police are looking for the men but similar scams have been reported in Texas. So, as part of our regular warnings for our bloggers, look out for Apple salesmen in rimless Impalas selling new iPads in McDonald’s parking lots. They may not be what they seem . . . or exactly what they seem.
