 SAN ANTONIO — That old cliché is ringing true: If a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.

A San Antonio woman experienced a painful reminder of the truism after she thought she had bought a real  iPad. She was tricked.

And apparently, similar scams are happening in other cities across the U.S.

An iPad is the gadget everyone wants to get their hands on.

They range in price anywhere from $500 to $900. So when Brittany Delao thought she could get one for only $150, she jumped at the chance.

“It looked brand new,” said Delao.

She says the item was packaged in what looked like manufacturing wrap.

The problem is Delao bought the item off the street. She says two men in a silver truck set up at a Valero gas station.

Inside the truck they had what appeared to be more boxes of iPads, and they showed her actual working ones.

“I thought, ‘Oh, yes, a brand new iPad,'” said Delao.

The woman said the men knew exactly what they were doing.

“He said, ‘Here is your iPad,’ pulled it out, showed it to me, and I gave him the money,” said Delao.

The item was packaged in bubble wrap, but when she opened it she realized it was just a picture frame with an Apple sticker affixed to the outside.
