A Florida man says the iPad Mini he bought from Walmart was really a box with two books inside instead of a tablet — and that Walmart won’t refund him.
“I immediately got my receipt,” the man said of his Dec. 14 purchase in a video posted to YouTube Sunday, “drove immediately back to the store, went to the customer service desk, asked for a manager, explained the whole situation.”
He claimed management at the Lakeland, Fla., Walmart was “extremely disrespectful” and uncooperative.
Three hundred dollars “is a lot of money to me,” the man wrote in the YouTube video description. “I am a full-time college student and can not [sic] afford to simply buy another tablet. I don’t know what else to do.”
“Apple customer service said they can not [sic] do anything to help,” he wrote. “Walmart corporate customer service said they can not [sic] do anything, took my info and said a District Manager MAY contact me in 2-5 business days.”
The video, which was featured on Reddit, concludes with the man saying he still hasn’t caught a break from Apple or Walmart management.
Now, a few things should be noted.
First, the video’s YouTube description includes a plug for his electronic cigarette webpage, so the video could be a hoax to try to drive traffic to his site.
Management at the Lakeland, Fla., Walmart did not immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment.
