On Thursday, Nevarde walked into a different Target store to get it replaced, but was worried no one would believe him.
That's when the clerk opened a second iPod box and found it too was full of erasers. Nevarde says he felt vindicated.
"Oh yeah, because now I knew they have to believe me," he said. "Either Target has an issue or Apple, somebody in between has an issue with these."
Target released the following statement regarding the iPod issue: "At Target, we are committed to providing our guests with an outstanding shopping experience. We take this incident very seriously and worked directly with the guest to resolve the issue and make it right. We are looking into this incident and have no additional information to share."
So far, officials have no idea who is swapping iPods for erasers.
