Michigan couple buying $450 phone scammed with 2 bars of soap in iPhone box
A Michigan couple buying a $450 phone discovered they had been scammed and instead received an iPhone box with 2 bars of soap inside.
“When I first saw it, it was shiny, wrapped in plastic like they had taken their time,” Thomas Greenarch told local Fox affiliate WJBK. “As soon as I went to open it they took off. I was more angry with myself that I let it happen.”
Greenarch said he and his wife saved for six months to buy their 14-year-old daughter a phone and they found what they thought was a good deal on the app Let Go. They messaged the 18-year-old seller and met up to buy it.
“I guess in retrospect you can see things, but at the time it seemed legitimate,” Greenarch told WJBK.
