A Texas woman is seeing red after buying an iPad that turned out to be a mirror.
Jalonta Freeman paid $200 for the phony tablet in a scheme experts say tends to pick up around the holidays.
It all started when a stranger approached the women in the parking lot of an Arlington gas station, offering iPads and laptops at steep discounts. He told Freeman he would be willing to sell her an $800 iPad at a fourth the retail price.

From behind, it looks like an iPad, but ...
She wasn’t pleased with what she found inside the box.
"I just started cussing," Freeman told a local television station. "I was upset. Anybody would be upset if you found out you just got scammed, you know what I'm saying? You just lost $200."
Please Note: A scam like this happened in Spartanburg in August of 2011 when someone paid $180 for a block of wood, thinking it was an Ipad.
