HULU SELANGOR – A Bangladeshi worker was left RM1000 poorer and a broken heart upon realising that the iPhone he bought turned out to be a piece of stone.
In a heartbreaking post by a mobile phone shop owner surnamed Liu, the man had first walked into his shop beaming with joy and told him how he was finally able to buy an iPhone for his son.
However, panic began to set in when he couldn’t turn the phone on, and quickly turned to Liu for help.
To both of their dismay and shock, what they saw inside the phone wasn’t a battery or SIM card, but an oblong-shaped piece of stone.
When he realised he was cheated, he tried his hardest to hold back the tears. I really pity this Bangladeshi worker. He spent RM1000 for a piece of stone.
Liu added that the foreigner told him that the so-called iPhone was sold to him by a man from Mainland China.
