    Guy buys iPad from Walmart, gets two books inside the box


    Buying an iPad or an electronic device this holiday season? You better be careful if you pay for the device in cash and not with a credit card, especially if it is purchased from Walmart. Like many others, a guy has been scammed by Walmart.

    A Florida resident who bought an iPad mini from a Walmart store in Lakeland received two books inside the iPad box instead of receiving the tablet. Worst of all, instead of resolving his problem and giving him an actual iPad, the managers of the Walmart store allegedly said, “They couldn’t do a thing and were very disrespectful.”

    Since he did not buy the iPad directly from Apple, when calling Apple, the company could not do anything to solve his problem.

    So how did the guy end up with two books inside a new sealed iPad box? What most likely happened was that someone previously bought the iPad, took it out of the box, replaced it with the two books, then reshrink wrapped the box and returned it to Walmart. Despite having the receipt, Walmart does not want to replace or refund him for the iPad.
