Official statement from Future Shop re: iPad 2 fraud

[ Edited ]

Recently, several instances of fraud concerning the iPad2 were reported to various store locations in BC. In these cases, the original iPad 2 product had been removed from the packaging, and replaced with a slab of clay, molded to the approximate size of the tablet. The packages were then re-sealed and returned.  While there have been less than 10 instances of iPad2 fraud reported in the region, Future Shop is advising any affected customers to return to any store location for a complete refund or verified replacement.


Future Shop takes fraud seriously and has launched a comprehensive investigation in cooperation with Apple and other retailers who have reported similar incidents. We have already implemented new systems within our stores to verify and assure all customers that their products have not been tampered with by fraudsters.


Customer service and experience is of the highest priority to us and we wish to make clear that any affected customers will have their products replaced or refunded.
