iPads replaced with clay, sold to unsuspecting Canadians
For some people they get a fuzzy sensation when upboxing a brand new Apple toy, but may not this person. A few unlucky Canadians were part of a scam. They bought what they thought was a iPad 2, but instead found themselves a brand new shiny slab of clay. In a calculated scam, crooks purchased real iPads, replaced them with terra-cotta tablets, then returned them to the store in re-sealed boxes. The fakes then found their way back on to the shelves, and into customer's baskets. Mark Sandhu, the person who discovered it, reported it and his place of purchase gave him a real iPad 2 for his troubles.
