Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, nearly missed out on a $10,000 gift card from Apple before because she thought she was being harangued by a time-wasting prankster. Her daughter was the lucky Apple customer to have purchased the 10 billionth application from Apple's store with her purchase of the virtual paper airplane app "Paper Glider"
“I thought it was a prank call,” said Davis. "I said ‘Thank you very much, I’m not interested’ and I hung up.”
Having told the legitimate Apple representative to go away, Davis frantically tried to phone the company back, after her daughters told her the "prank" might have been genuine.
All was resolved when she got through and received her award.
