This is what actually happened

While most people might think that this was just another iPhone scam, it was not. According to the teenager, he did not check the description of the product while ordering it. The listing he came across was actually for an iPhone-shaped coffee table. He mistook it for an actual iPhone. So, it was actually the customer’s fault this time around. The e-commerce website did send the right product and they aren’t at fault in this case.

When the teen received the parcel, he felt something was wrong because the package was as tall as him. Once, he opened the package and checked the description of the listing, he realised the mistake he had done. The teen then posted it on social media about the whole mishap. The boy said that he found it odd the iPhone was listed at a cheap price and that the shipping cost was unusually high.

While this is an unusual case, it does teach us something very important: Read the product listing carefully before ordering any product online. It is also a good idea to record the unpacking of the product so that if anything is wrong with it, you can share the video with e-commerce platforms to prove your story.
