Australian woman pays $1334 for two apples in iPhone scam
A 21-year-old woman from Brisbane, Australia was scammed into buying a pair of apples in place of the iPhones she was expecting, regional police say. The person recently placed an ad on classifieds site Gumtree, saying she was interested in buying a few iPhones. She was then contacted by another woman, who said she had a pair of iPhones to sell.<br /><br />The two parties met at Sunnybank McDonald's, where the first woman paid $1,500 AUD ($1,334 US) for two iPhone boxes. She returned home before checking them however, only to <a href="" rel='nofollow'>discover</a> that the boxes had real apples in them. A 16GB Australian iPhone normally retails for $799 AUD unlocked.<br />

Such scams are rare but not unheard of with Apple products. In some cases, people have even claimed to have bought devices with dummy goods from stores.
