iPad 2 Scheme Targets NYC Flagship Apple Store

A group of extortionists has targeted the flagship Apple store on Fifth Avenue at 59th St, purchasing every iPad 2 they can to sell them at hugely inflated prices in the U.S. and China.  A ringleader passed out wads of $100 bills to people who then passed them along to about 200 people waiting on the line outside of the store.  They plan to sell the iPads for almost $2,000 a piece, more than double their retail price.

The workers inside of the Apple store were aware of what was going on, but were unable to do anything to prevent it.
