Many people are just too trusting. What is really dumb that she didn't open the box on the spot, if for no other reason to make sure it wasn't empty.

Are you positively sure it wasn't Apple (wood)?
Maybe they told her it was an Apple McPad and she just didn't hear it right?

Then the authorities come and kick in her door and confiscate her "woody iPad" and charge he for possession of a restricted species.

My guess is she was not too trusting -- she was too dishonest. She figured they were "hot" and she wanted a piece of the action. The unfortunate thing is she lost only $180.

That aside..., would you buy an electronic product from somebody in a fast food restaurant parking lot? With a gold tooth?

People easily that stupid were getting paid millions of dollars a year on Wall St. making bets that drove their companies into the ground. There is a lot of stupid to go around, and plenty of it wears handmade Italian suits.
