WTF

And this is why you never a buy a cheap iPad online

Ever see a deal online for a cheap iPad? Chances are the deal is too good to be true. See how this Memphis man was conned into thinking he bought a deal.

Fake iPad

If you ever find a deal online that’s too good to be to true, chances are it is, which is unfortunately what one man from Memphis found out when his package arrived in the mail.

Giddy as a school boy, the buyer quickly found out that the iPad he thought he purchased turned out to be a fake.

Now in most cases, counterfeiters usually ship out a sub par electronic with some bogus software to pass itself off as an iPad. However, this is a completely different story. In this case, the seller sold the man nothing but duct tape and a printed out version of an iPad display.

I swear, you can’t make this stuff up.

Moral of the story: if you see an iPad being sold online for $100-$200, don’t buy it, unless you want to get ripped off.
