Buying an iPad In a Parking Lot is a Bad Idea
Grand Prairie, Texas is experiencing an epidemic of fake Apple products -- but not the kind from a fake Apple Store. The details of this scam come from the Grand Prairie police department:
Anyone who has information about the suspects should call Grand Prairie Crime Stoppers at 972-988-8477 or the Grand Prairie "Tip Line" at 972-237-8877.

LOL That's up there with the Wallet Inspector.
But let's consider the 'victim' thing here.
Who in their right minds would a) buy from some dodgy guys in a parking lot for a 1/3 of the price and b) not inspect the item first?
If you believed the product to be genuine, then you're basically admitting you'd buy stolen goods. No way could you say you thought it would be anything else, like a legitimate sale. And if you didn't check the iThing... well, then you're an idiot.
So... in a way... the only people losing here are gullible idiots who would have bought stolen items.

Yeah, it's odd that they use the word "victim". This is simply one criminal tricking a dumber criminal. The only real victim here is the police officer who has to take the report while keeping a straight face and without making fun of the "victim".

I would only buy an iPad from a car trunk if I could test it on the spot, and if it had almost no bloodstains.

God some pepole are fools.
I wonder if anyone paid them with forged money?
