Police from the Upper Mt Gravatt Crime Prevention Unit say the 21-year-old woman placed an advertisement on the site saying she was interested in buying a few iPhones.
Not long after she put the word out, a woman called and said she had two of the phone types the woman needed.
The two women arranged to meet at Sunnybank McDonald’s where the transaction took place. The woman paid $1500 and was handed two iPhone boxes that looked new but she did not check inside.
When the buyer returned home she opened the phone boxes to find apples in them – real apples, not the iPhone variety.
