    Default Woman orders Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, gets an apple-flavoured yogurt drink instead

    Scary example of risks with online ordering and the delivery process

    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.

    They should quickly find out what went wrong here as China has cameras everywhere.

    Usually for orders over a certain amount it requires a physical signature by someone in the residence it is delivered to. If this so called parcel locker isn't secured this would be on the resident and not Courier.

    CCTV will be the only saving grace here but the fault would not be with ordering directly from Apple.

    The article indicated that investigations revealed that it was a courier that did the swap. He was charged for the crime.

    Thanks for the update Chris. At the end of article said that

    "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."

    So I guess they posted the rest elsewhere. If you can't trust your courier who are you to trust? They drive around with thousands of dollars of equipment by the hour.

    The impression that buying things online is "risk-free" seems to have spread wide and far. Most times it works, sometimes it does not. Not surprising to me at all.

    You're correct, I think I read it in a different related article.
