(YORKSHIRE, England) -- Apple sells iPods, iPhones and iPads, but not iSpuds.
Police in Yorkshire, England are cautioning citizens to be wary of anyone who approaches them on the street and offers to sell them an iPad.
The warning comes in the wake of a report that a 31-year-old man was tricked out of several hundred dollars when he paid a stranger for an iPad that turned out to be a bag of potatoes, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.
According to a police report, the victim was approached on the street by a man who offered him an iPad for 200 pounds, the equivalent of $318.
The conman escorted the victim to an ATM where cash was exchanged for a black laptop bag that the victim believed contained an iPad. It was not after the victim left the area and opened the bag that he discovered it contained only potatoes.
