Woman orders Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, gets an apple-flavoured yogurt drink instead
The Chinese woman had ordered the iPhone 12 Pro Max from the official Apple website.
A Chinese woman ordered the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max from the official Apple website and was in for a rude shock when she opened the delivery box. Instead of Apple's flagship device, there was an apple-flavoured yogurt drink.
According to a post on Weibo, the woman called Liu paid a hefty $1,500 to buy the latest iPhone 12 Pro Max and received the apple-flavoured yogurt drink in her mail instead. While scams like these are not unheard of, the surprising part is that she had placed the order on Apple's official website and not from a third-party reseller.
Liu mentioned in her post that the parcel was not delivered directly to her, she had opted for the delivery to be made to the parcel locker at her residence. Both Apple and the Express Mail Service, the official courier partner for the company, have claimed that the iPhone 12 Pro Max was delivered to the location of her request.
However, Liu said that she had not received the smartphone and posted a photo of the drink on Weibo as well. Liu has filed a case with the local police regarding this.
According to a report in Global Times, Express Mail Service has appointed people to specially look into this and has said that investigations are going on. Apple has also shared a similar response to Global Times' inquiry and has said that the case will be resolved soon.
