After trying to sell re-branded and ‘gold-plated’ Samsung Galaxy Folds, Roberto is now back with refurbished iPhone 11 Pros for $499. That man doesn’t give up! According to reports, the company is “also coming clean about its intentions to make Roberto Escobar the ‘overstock king-pin’,”.
Escobar made an announcement on marketwatch.com (currently all you can see is an Error 404 message). He said that it is selling a limited number of refurbished 256GB iPhone 11 Pros. These iPhones are now repaired and gold-plated. You can get it for $499.
If this iPhone 11 Pro is anything like the Escobar Fold 2 (the gold-plated Samsung Galaxy Fold), then the gold-plating is going be a sticker foil that tech reviewer Marques Brownlee had ‘reviewed’.
Besides peeling off the gold foil, Brownlee had mentioned that the smartphone was nothing more than a repackaged Galaxy Fold and most people who had placed orders for it did not receive the product. The same is probably going to happen for the iPhone 11 Pro Escobar Inc is trying to sell now.
Also, the company said that the phone will come along with all ‘original’ Apple accessories. These include cable, charger and headphone. Not only this, an Escobar logo engraved on the back, and come in “luxury wooden box”.
Roberto Escobar has said in a statement,
“This is my way of fighting Apple, I sell their phones at a lower price and mine are gold-plated with nice girls showing them off. Apple can never do that,”.
“Our goal is to uphold Mr. Escobar’s dreams of becoming the overstock king-pin and this is one step towards that direction,” said Escobar Inc. CEO Olof Gustafsson.
So, the refurbished iPhone 11 Pro can be yours for $499. The original cost is $999. But, you might not receive it! So, hold on for now.
