Woman buys Apple phones online, conned into paying $1200 for 2 apples
A 21-year-old Australian woman who was trying to buy Apple smartphones online was conned into paying USD 1,200 for two edible apples!
The woman, who has not been named, had posted an ad on website Gumtree asking to buy two Apple smartphones. She was soon contacted by another woman who said she had ‘two Apples’ for sale.
They met at a McDonald’s restaurant where the woman handed over the money for what she thought were two new smartphone boxes. The buyer did not check inside the boxes and on arriving home found they contained real apples.
