You know what they say, if it sounds too good to be true; it probably is.
Scammers have been selling floor tiles as iPads.
Police in the Central Valley, California have warned shoppers of scam artists selling fake iPads and flat screen televisions that appear to be the real deal — at least until the bubble wrap comes off.
Investigators in Ceres, a Stanislaus County city south of Modesto, have received multiple reports of victims being offered popular electronics for low, “out of the box” prices.
All the crooks have to do, is put logos on pieces of tiles, bundle them up in bubble wrap, put them in a box and head out looking for susceptible customers.
Authorities are asking anyone who has fallen victim to the scam to contact the Ceres Police Department at (209) 538-5712.
