The father was upset when he went to the store to repair his son because he thought he could buy an iPhone and could not open it. A Bangladeshi worker wanted to get a good gift for his son, but was saddened to learn that he had been lied to.
In a post on the Facebook page of a mobile phone shop owner named Liu, the Bangladeshi man approached her and told her he was happy to finally be able to buy an iPhone for his son. The father used RM1,000 as a gift to receive the gift, but asked Liu for help because he had difficulty making the smartphone.
However, when Liu opened it for inspection, they found only a tablet in the smartphone, instead of having a battery or a SIM card to startle both of them. Liu said the man tried his best to hold back his tears when he found out he had been lied to. Liu also said that he really felt for the pitiful man.
It appears that the man apparently bought the iPhone from a man in mainland China at a “discount”. Many readers of the Facebook post felt sorry for the man, and some netizens pointed out that it was a normal scam and that it often happened to other customers.
Liu said some of them wanted to raise funds to help the man buy another smartphone for his son, but that the issue had been resolved privately and no donations needed to be sent.
It is also a warning not to label everyone by default. In addition, some Internet users are of any race or ethnicity. They pointed out that there are liars in every religion and country, so it should be carefully investigated.
