"Ready for dinner"
An Arlington, Texas, woman got scammed when she paid $200 for an iPad that turned out to be a mirror. The mirror was not-so-cleverly disguised with wrapping paper printed to look like an iPad screen. It was packaged in a cardboard FedEx box. The lesson here, as Freeman eventually learned, is never to buy anything from a man who pulls up to you, your sister and your mother at pump 9 at the gas station. Freeman warns others,”Don’t buy nothing on the streets from nobody.”
