A Craigslist user is warning everyone in the Los Angeles area to be wary of a MacBook Pro scammer.
According to the post, the victim agreed to meet in a public place to purchase the brand new MacBook Pro sealed in its box. After the transaction had taken place the buyer attempted to open the box, which led to the woman frantically yelling and returning the money.
The Craigslist user managed to snap photos of the woman, who appears of Asian descent, before the scammer allegedly dialed 911.

This thief tries to sell you a sealed macbook pro but won’t let u open it. A guy pretends to send his gf to meet u at a public place. U wait inside the public place. She never shows up. When u leave a girl approachess u. Ask u if your the person about the macbook. Tells u she has it in the car. I tried to get her to go back to the public place. She acts nice and says it’s OK. My car is just right here. Did not let me open the macbook pro cus it’s sealed until I paid her. It was a good deal so I said fine. Gave her the money, she gave me the laptop. I tried opening my laptop which I paid for. She yells out what are u doing. At this point I realize she doesn’t have a license plate on her car so I quickly pull out my phone and take pictures of her face. She quickly runs to me and gives me the money back. Plays innocent and SHE calls the cops. The cops show up, and tell me it’s a scam. But since she gave me the money back they can’t charge her for anything. Bullshit! She’s gonna rip someone else off.
