It's a deal that is too good to be true. A nation-wide scam of selling fake entertainment systems hit Diaz and her boyfriend yesterday, even though the situation seemed a little odd.
"He started off, 'oh, let's sell it for $800.' And then to, 'how much do you have in your pocket?'" she said. "So from the start it doesn't seem really legit, but we weren't thinking at the time."
After purchasing the entertainment system from the back of this man's truck, it took two hours before Diaz realized that they had been scammed.
"I Googled it. I wanted to see how much it was worth, if it was really worth that amount. And it didn't come up as anything. It was just scam. Everybody writing YouTube saying don't buy it, watch out," said Diaz."
The scammers wait outside of busy parts of town, such as banks, gas stations and even Walmart. They target unsuspecting shoppers, then make their sales pitch.
"They say, 'Oh my boss got one too many, can you buy it? Because if we send it back, we're not going to get no money back for it.' And every story's the same," Diaz said.
And while Diaz and her boyfriend can't do anything with the fake entertainment system, they said it taught them a lesson.
"It's terrible, i mean, we got ripped off," said Diaz. "I guess it's a lesson learned for now on not to just buy stuff right away."
A few other locals have been victim of the same scam. Diaz said the man that sold them the system was driving a white, single cab Dodge.
