The two met at a restaurant in Brisbane where the buyer woman handed over the money for what she thought were two new smartphone.
The lady did not check inside the boxes after making payment and on returning home, she found that the boxes contained two pieces of apple fruit.

Senior Constable Jess Hopkin of the Crime Prevention Unit in Upper Mt Gravatt, near Brisbane, warned people to be careful when buying things online. Gumtree spokeswoman Niki Hennessy said that they are trying to make Gumtree the safest possible platform to buy things online and that the company took the safety and security of its users seriously.
