    Is there a reputable source that this actually happened or is it just a made up story (I don't mean by you) doing the rounds? I tried to google it, but the first results all lead to gizmodo which gives no further trustworthy source.

    OK, thanks. Assuming that the story is real, I see the weakness here:

    I guess this is worse, than the people who bought iPads from the store and got an clay tablet instead. Turned out some scammers bought real iPads and returned the boxes with clay tablets.

    Yeah... There were people locally here buying up iPads and resealing the boxes after they removed the iPads and returning them to Target
