There are apples, and then are Apples. One hapless phone customer in Australia reportedly found this out the hard way, when she paid for what she thought was a pair of iPhones and ended up with two very expensive pieces of fruit.

The unidentified 21-year-old woman had negotiated to buy the phones on Gumtree, an online classifieds site.

Officials from the Upper Mt Gravatt Crime Prevention Unit told the Herald Sun that the woman discovered the scam after she exchanged $1,500 for two iPhone boxes in a local McDonald’s parking lot. When she opened the boxes up, she found the boxes contained only apples, not handsets.

“[B]e smart about what you buy,” Upper Mt Gravatt Senior Constable Jess Hopkin said, according to the Herald Sun. “If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

This is not even the first time an Apple fan has been fooled by a fraudster at a McDonald’s. In 2011, a 22-year-old South Carolina woman bought a $180 iPad that turned out to be a piece of wood. A pair of men she met in the fast-food restaurant parking lot had claimed to be selling the items in bulk.

A year later, a man in a Texas gas station sold a woman an “iPad” that turned out to be a mirror.

More recently, in January a woman was shocked to find the iPad she had purchased at a New Jersey Walmart was fake. The Walmart in question initially refused to refund Jamie Frick’s purchase, although the store eventually relented and issued a full refund.
