This is an old slight of hand trick (no Cod jokes PLEASE!) I'vbe seen this done with mobile phones where the seller shows the phone and puts it away
in the box and switches to an empty box with some kind of weight inside so it feels the same at the last second, It takes practice and skill to get
this so it works perfectly, but these people make a lot of money from this. Because most people assume the goods are stolen (as well as embarrassment)
they usually don't come forward to police.
Not a bad living if they can sell a few of these a day. That wooden ipad is just such a piss take though, that's obviously to weight the box but the
decoration imo is just to taunt their victim, adding insult to injury, They do look very funny though!
