Since Tuesday night, the hashtag 'iPhoneScam' has been trending on Twitter with many users alleging a fraud has been carried out by a person seemingly conning others by selling them iPhones at cheaper rates. The alleged scam came to light when a user Nishant Kumar Singh released a video on YouTube accusing founder and owner of Squeaks Media, Neel Patel, of multiple scams. In a Twitter thread, Nishant has also listed several other alleged scams by Neel Patel.
According to a report in Free Press Journal, Nishant Kumar Singh along with another person Abhimanyu Singh Rana, in their 36-min video, said that Neel Patel, using his digital venture NaaradPay, offered iPhone 11 to people at a very cheap price. With the help of Twitter influencers, he then improved his credibility in the market.
However, upon receiving the payments from customers, he allegedly didn't deliver iPhones to anyone. The duo believes that only a few customers received iPhones - this was apparently done by Patel to make people believe in his iPhone offer. However, Neel has posted several explanations on Twitter and said that he will counter the allegations. He has also claimed that he is not a fraud.
