Black Friday: See How a Woman was ‘Tricked’ Into Buying 11 Potatoes for $100 Instead of iPhone (Photos)


The fake iPhone bought on black friday

The shopping extravaganza following Thanksgiving 2017, has seeb woman ‘deceived’ into purchasing 11 potatoes for $100 rather than the iPhone 6 publicized

A woman claims to have been ‘tricked’ after buying an iPhone 6 in a Black Friday deal and somehow getting a box of potatoes instead.

While the annual Black Friday sales can be a golden opportunity to grab a bargain, the woman from Wisconsin also found they’re a great opportunity for scammers and conmen to strike.

In a viral video originally posted on LiveLeak, the unknown woman says she saw a black truck with balloons and Black Friday posters driving around her neighbourhood in Milwaukee.

She says the vehicle was filled with gadgets, clothes and accessories, and she thought she’d struck a bargain when the driver agreed to sell her the phone for just $100 – around £80.

But when she got home, she says she was horrified to find she’d been swindled and the box was actually filled with 11 chopped pieces of potato.

“They have everything you could name: clothes, shoes, watches, purse, bundles of hair, DVDs, CDs – everything – phones, laptops,” she says on the video, which has been viewed more than 60,000 times.

“So I ask the guy about the iPhone 6 and he’s like, ‘Ah yeah, today, I will give it to you for $100.’

“He hands me an iPhone 6, I’m playing with it, turning it around, checking it. I ask him to call the phone and he showed me the number and I’m like, ‘Cool, it’s legit. It’s ringing. It’s working. I want it.’

“Right? Wrong. He turns around and puts the phone in the box with a piece of paper, he hands it to me, I hand him the money, I get in my car and drive home.

“I sit at my kitchen table about to play with the phone… The box is heavy, and I get home, and this n****r sold me a box of potatoes!”

And to add apparent insult to apparent injury, the scammer packed an Android charger in the box with the potatoes.

“What the heck am I supposed to do with this?” the woman yelled on the video.

“I am so hurt right now imma have to go to jail, imma go outside and imma find these old n*****s. What am I supposed to do with – oh you almost made me cuss.”

It is unknown what device the woman used to film the evidence of her apparent scam before it was uploaded to LiveLeak.

UK consumer watchdog Which? said to get the best deals on Black Friday, shoppers had to prepare thoroughly, research products beforehand and be wary of unusual brands.
