Two women bought what they thought was a laptop for $250. Upon opening, it it turned out to be a packet of paper wrapped in black tape.
The women were approached in a gas station parking lot by a man who said he had received laptops in shipping boxes at a discount.
The incident happened in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the same town where earlier this week it was reported that a woman bought what she thought was a $180 iPad that turned out to be a piece of painted wood.
Police says the man is 5’11″ and weighs ~130 lbs. He travels with another man in a white four-door and sports a grill in his mouth with four gold teeth.
Once again, scammers exploit greedy people who think they’re scamming one over themselves. House of Games, anyone?
