In yet another cautionary tale, to not be an idiot online, a woman from Wuxi China got quite the surprise recently when she opened up the package that she thought contained her new iPhone6s, only to find a pear on the back.
However, the seller soon messaged her back that an unexpected problem had occurred, the phone had been seized by customs, she would have to pay him 800 USD more, which he would then refund back to her once she got the phone. Apparently, thinking that plan sounded totally legit, she transferred over the money.
In the end, to no one’s surprise except for her own, she didn’t receive exactly what she ordered. Instead of a new Apple iPhone6s at a cut-rate, she found she had paid 1300 USD for a Pear Phone. When she tried to contact the seller for a refund, she found he had blacklisted her.
