A man in China bought a Samsung hard drive for about $35 on Taobao. He opened it up, plugged it in, and found that it wasn’t showing the full storage capacity on his computer. A few minutes later, he found out why – someone had replaced the innards with a bunch of nuts and bolts hotglued into the case. The light? It was just connected to a USB key.
As you’ll recall, the same thing happened to a lad in a parking lot who bought an iPad out of someone’s trunk and another fellow in Russia who found nuts glued inside his hard drive case.
Fools, as they say, find themselves soon parted from their money. But jerks will hot glue any old scrap to anything and fool bargain hunters all day long.
