Default Lady thought she was buying a $200 iPad from a stranger on the street.

At least she probably won't buy white-van speakers next.

Is it just me or does it look like she has no lenses in her glasses, just the frame?

Yes, no lenses on the frame. Probably using a fake wig too.

That's the risk you take when you try to buy stolen goods. Nobody sells an iPad that cheap at a gas station to random strangers unless it's stolen. She got what she deserved.

Dumbass.

Reminds me of a local story where some China girl willingly paid $2000 for an iPhone 5 and have the cheek to say she got scammed.

I don't know why this story got any attention. I also saw it on modmyi.com

This probably happens hundreds of times per day. This gadget is really $&@&ing popular.
