• In August 31st’s Wake N’ Blog, a story was mentioned regarding how a Spartanburg, South Carolina woman was duped into buying an iPad for $180 which turned out to be a block of wood. It appears the fix is still in on ignorant, slack-jawed yokels who buy their computer equipment in odd locations as two additional women have now become victim of this nefarious plot by purchasing “laptops” for $250 in a gas station parking lot. Via the report: “In the latest case, the women were approached by a man who said he had received laptops in shipping boxes at discounted prices. When the women got home, they found they had a power cord and a stack of paper wrapped in black tape.” Woodheads. [azcentral]
