WTF!?!: Woman Pays $1,200 For Two Apples She Believed Were iPhones

An Australian woman was recently scammed, when she attempted to buy a couple of iPhones and wound up with fruit.

The crime happened on a website called Gumtree, on which the 21-year-old victim advertised her desire for an iPhone. She was responded to by a woman who claimed she could sell her two phones for $1,200. Unfortunately, when she took the iPhone boxes and handed the cash over, she never checked inside. Instead of phones, there was nothing but apple pieces.

Police in the area warn that people need to be more wary of what they buy online. Or at the least, don't be careless.
