A Milwaukee woman trying to get a head-start on the Christmas shopping season paid $100 for a box of potatoes which she thought was an iPhone.
The scam was perpetrated by a man driving around her neighborhood in a black truck with balloons and a sign taped to it which read: ‘Black Friday sale.’
The unnamed woman, who uploaded a video telling her story, said she made sure the man tested the phone to see if it worked.
After she agreed to buy the phone, she took what she thought was the box with the iPhone in it and went home. But when she got home, she was shocked to discover that the box was filled with potatoes.
