    She didn't feel too bad buying what she must have thought was stolen property (I.E. Some dude pulling up selling a $829 iPad for $200).

    Is it really a "scam" if one of the participants is an idiot?

    It wasn't a counterfeit iPad, it wasn't a cleverly disguised tablet made to look like an iPad... It was a mirror with a best buy wrapper on it.

    The story is so obvious I wondered if the news station was angling for "someone" to make things right and donate an iPad...a favorite ploy of our local news during the holiday season.

    Her glasses were fake too. I wonder how much she paid for those.

    "If you turn it on its back it actually looks like a Apple iPad." But only if you think the back of an iPad is duct tape with the logo drawn on in sharpie.

    Idiot got what she deserved. :upeyes:

    Words can't describe what I think of that woman.

    I bet she'd fall for it twice.

    So she thought she was buying a stolen Ipad ($200, what else could she think??) and got ripped off. Gee, I really feel sorry for her!

    That could be the funniest thing I've ever seen. Nothing says iPad like duct tape.

    I bet she would have paid $400 for it, she should just re-package it and pass it on to someone else, if someone is that stupid to to fall for that, they deserve what they get, its funny how many scams are pulled at the gas station, must be the gas fumes that make people stupid:steamed:

    If we had free Obama IPads, this would not happen.

    Wow, that's just amazing. :rofl:

    I keep trying to think rationally. If I bought that and got taken for $200 I wouldn't tell my best friend, my parents, my son, my shrink....NO ONE. I'd die with that secret. :rofl:

    But here she is on the news telling the world. I guess when you're dumb enough to buy a mirror with duct tape and a Best Buy add taped to it, you aren't the type thats concerned with the publics perception of your intelligence. Also if you're they type to buy that, you're not smart enough to know HOW stupid it was afterwards.

    My favorite part was when they artistically interviewed her via the reflection in the chunk of mirror revealed by the torn down corner of Best Buy ad. :faint::rofl:
