ARLINGTON, Texas, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- A Texas woman said she was dismayed to discover the iPad she bought for $200 from a man at a gas station turned out to be a mirror with an Apple logo.

Jalonta Freeman of Arlington said a man approached her at a gas station with a load of "iPads and stuff" and offered to sell her an $800 model for only $200 and she took the deal, KXAS-TV, Dallas-Fort Worth, reported Monday.

However, Freeman said her sister later opened the package and discovered it was a mirror with an Apple sticker attached.

"If you turn it on the back, it actually looks like an Apple iPad," Freeman said. "And when you turn it to the front, it has the prices and stuff."

"That's so messed up," Freeman said. "That's so wrong. I would never do anybody like that. Get a job."

Arlington police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said no similar crimes have been reported in the area recently, but it's a common occurrence near the holiday season.
