Woman Buys Fake Ipad Outside Winco in Victorville

VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): A Victorville woman would like to warn the community of a scam that she ipad3fell victim to on Wednesday evening.

On September 30th at about 4:00 p.m. Tamara Cortez was at the Victorville Winco on Roy Rogers Drive when a nicely dressed Hispanic man approximately 35-year-old approached her.

The man offered to sell Cortez an Ipad Mini for $200. Cortez talked the man down to $80 and thought she just got a great deal on something that would assist her in her job search after being laid off from a job she had for 7 years.

When she opened the box, she realized it was just a box that appeared to contain a real Ipad. After opening up the bubble wrapped item she discovered a piece of tile. “He had tvs, other iPads and Xbox ones and also phone boxes,” said Cortez.

Although, Cortez felt “dumb” (as she put it) for getting involved, she wanted to make sure that the same did not happen to anyone else in the community. “My immediate thought was to make sure the community was warned.”

Cortez stated the man who sold her the fake Ipad was driving a black SUV with Nevada plates. A police report was made and Winco surveillance cameras were viewed for evidence.

More information will be updated as it becomes available.
