Scam Alert!! iPads At Many Canadian Retail Stores Are Being Sold As Clay

According to some new reports, some unlucky buyers have picked up new iPad 2 units from some Best Buy, Future Shop, Walmart and London Drugs stores only to find that the boxes do not actually contain iPads as expected, but rather a giant grey slab of modelling clay.

It would appear that the boxes sold were sealed and appeared upon a cursory inspection to be all A-OK, though upon opening the full horror was revealed.

Obviously someone has been intercepting iPads, opening them and then taking out the tablets only to replace them with something suitably weighty in order to cover their tracks. That’s where the clay comes in.

Interestingly the crooks are then managing to re-seal the boxes so that nobody realizes what has happened. The stores affected have now launched fraud investigations, with between thirty and forty iPads apparently stolen.

If you’re going to buy an iPad 2 in Canada this week, it might be a good idea to open up the box in the store before you leave.
