These aren't the potatoes in question. But, would potatoes really fool you?
If a man in the street offers to sell you a Rolex, it is likely a worthless piece of metal.

Or, in this case, potatoes.
Britain's Manchester Evening News reports that yet another variation on the unopened-iPad-box-that-turns-out-not -to-contain-an-iPad scam occurred in the very center of Manchester.

They offered to sell him an iPad for 250 British pounds (around $390). They wanted to meet him in a parking lot to complete the transaction.
