Couple who spent $450 for an iPhone instead got 2 bars of soap
A couple who saved money to buy their 14-year-old daughter an iPhone were left with a dud.
Fox 2 Detroit reported the Michigan couple had bought an iPhone for $450 on the Letgo app and scheduled to meet the 18-year-old seller.
At the exchange in the parking lot of an apartment complex, Thomas Greenarch handed the seller his money before he could open the box to check the phone. He found two bars of soap inside as the seller ran back inside the locked building, Fox 2 reported.
Police tracked the seller’s information, and she was ticketed.
Fox 2 reported the Greenarches recently lost their home and had other financial setbacks after Thomas Greenarch suffered brain damage in a car crash.
The couple said they found another phone for their daughter on Craigslist and were planning to do the exchange at a designated police station to avoid a similar situation.
