If this story is true, they’d have to be very small apples to fit inside an iPhone box – maybe crabapples. The victim had placed an online classified ad that said she was seeking iPhones, and someone contacted her offering to sell two new ones for AU$1500. They met up at a McDonald’s to perform the exchange, but for some reason the buyer didn’t look inside the box. She should have.
If you’re going to buy electronics through online classifieds, meeting up with the seller in person instead of sending off money to someone who is in a different city is a good start.
