Itbusiness.ca is today reporting the cautionary tale of an American Apple customer, a student, who says he was buying iPads for his friends on a gaming forum who live outside the US. According to itbusiness, the student claims on his blog that he was buying two iPads a day from his local Apple store, only slapping a little bit extra onto the price to cover shipping charges and so on. He insists that he wasnâ€™t profiteering.
However, Apple became suspicious and the next time the student went to his local store to buy an iPad they told him that he had reached his lifetime limit of iPad purchases, and was banned from buying anymore. The Apple staff declined to tell him how many iPads was too many.
Surprisingly, the student appears to have no hard feelings and actually says that heâ€™s glad that Apple has such checks and balances in place to stop hoarders, adding only that he wishes that Apple would be more consistent in catching hoarders.
Itâ€™s not clear whether or not the student is banned for life from buying any Apple products or just the iPad.
