    I feel bad for the woman and am angry that people pull this kind of crap on innocent people, but at the same time I'm just in disbelief that people don't check before buying. If you're not buying online where you actually have a chance of getting your money back, you should never buy something that you can't open the box to check.

    My friend, as bad as I feel for him, did something similar and literally paid for the consequences. He got a long lecture from me. Some guy told him hey I'm selling these 2010 Macbooks (it was 2010 at the time) for $400, great deal, you can resell them for at least $800. I told him don't buy them (he bought 2 of them) when he called to ask me. The price is too low for a Macbook "brand new in box." He of course doesn't listen to me bc the guy showed him an actual 2010 Macbook when opening one of the boxes. Yeah he gave my friend 2 "sealed" boxes and told him he couldn't open them bc they're sealed so he can't check before paying. I find out later my friend doesn't know the meaning of "sealed" bc they were just bubble wrapped. They weren't SEALED. I was so pissed off.

    Yeah I'm sure you wanna know what happened lol. He ended up opening the boxes when the guy drove off and was never to be seen again and inside the new 2010 Macbook boxes were a 2000 and 2001 iBook which were in decent shape but aren't worth more than $150. He lost hundreds of dollars from that. I only had one thing to tell him...I warned you.

    You seem to be confused by sarcasm. Who do we sue for that?

    Does Alluziion have to spell it out for you, Jokadaking? BTW: Can I perhaps sell you a nice iPad for cheap? Maybe about $200...? I also have the Eiffel Tower and the Brooklyn Bridge available, just in case...

    The front facing camera is amazing, so clear! Seriously though, who wouldn't try it out first? Especially an electronic device. Oh well, at least they didn't get beat up or shot too. There have been many reports of people who answer CL ads and get robbed & beat up.
    As they say... buyer beware!

    I fully agree with you cause this happens in the uk! Guys will come to u with a laptop box and open it and show you the laptop they are selling and then take you to their car where they sell you a sealed box that only has bottles of water in it! Just sad people will do anything for a bargain!

    What a liberal idiot! First thing you should do is check the item. Ha, matter of fact, if someone at a gas station is trying to sell you an $800 ipad for $200 is jerking you. She is the dumbass that went with it. I give the guy props that sold it, took the balls to create an ipad out of glass and duct tape and hoping that the idiot consumer doesnt open it. Just amazes me how many of these idiots we have in this country.
