Woman buys iPhone online….ends up with 2 bars of soap instead

National News

ALLEN PARK, Mich.  (WEHT) – A Michigan woman said she tried to buy her daughter an iPhone, but got 2 bars of soap instead.

A few weeks ago, the woman made a deal with a “seller” on the app LetGo. They communicated on the app and agreed on $450 for the iPhone.

She was buying the phone for her daughter before school started and had been saving up for it for 6 months.

She agreed to meet the “seller” at an apartment complex and when she went there with her husband, they exchanged the money and the iPhone box.

The seller then took off running. Her husband opened the box and found just 2 bars of soup, no iPhone.

The woman tried going after the “seller,” but she was gone.

They called the police and the police were able to figure out who she was because she used her phone number for the sale, even though she used a fake name in the app.

The police issued the seller a ticket and if she doesn’t show up for court, a warrant for her arrest will be issued.
