Suzanne Nassie of Massachusetts bought the above iPad at a Brockton Wal-Mart on Sunday for $499. After she got home and opened the box, it turned out to be a useless piece of plastic.
Nassie described fake pad to CBS Boston:
“This isn’t even a real device. Somebody put a phony device in that box.”
“There’s a speaker that’s suppose to be on the back, it’s just little painted dots. When I peered inside at the port on the back where you’re suppose to charge it, it’s just plastic. No metal prongs or anything of that nature.”
Wal-Mart has apologized, said they are investigating the incident, and issued Nassie a refund.
