Woman pays for Apple I-phone, but get two real apples for $1200

An Australian woman of 21 years, who tried to buy two apple I-Phones online, was cheated by getting two real apples.  The woman had posted an advertisement to buy two apple I-Phones on the website gumtree. 

 
Soon she was contacted by another woman saying that she had ‘two apples’ for sale. Both of them met in a restaurant and the buyer handed over the money to seller for the Apple I Phone boxes which she had given. The buyer didn’t open the box in the restaurant and when she reached home, she found that the boxes contained real apple.
 
Senior Constable Jess Hopkin of the Crime Prevention Unit in Upper Mt Gravatt near Brisbane warned people to be careful when buying things online, according to 'Herald Sun'. "If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. It's really just common sense," said Hopkin.
 
Commenting on the incident, Gumtree spokeswoman Niki Henness said company is very keen for the safety and security of its users.  "We are continually improving processes and user education to make Gumtree the safest possible platform for buying and selling," she said.
