Man Buys New Smartphone On Street, Later Realizes It’s Just Piece Of Wood

A man in Ghana who bought an android Smartphone on the streets of Ghana’s capital Accra reached home and discovered that he had actually bought a piece of wood.

According to Celebritiesbuzz.com.gh, the victim’s younger brother also identified as Amenyo Thomas shared the story and photos of the wooden Smartphone on Facebook.

The photos showed a well-packaged piece of wood properly designed in form of a Smartphone. It was fixed inside a cell phone case where the hardware elements are meant to be.

The Ghanaian gentleman was very disappointed to an extent that he cursed the conman to hell.

Some phone dealers will not make it to heaven, see what they did to my brother in Accra. Any victim in the house? Share your experience,” he said.


In similar story earlier reported by NEWSLEXPOINT.com, Mutaasa Kafeero Plaza, a place where you can buy a phone but can only confirm it’s yours when you’re safely with it at home. Then again, you might indeed reach home with it but there is a 90% chance that it’s fake. This building is known by many as the capital of stolen phones in Kampala.

Ask me why and I will refer you to check in with local police posts around the area. 75% of cases they record in a day are mostly reports of stolen electronic devices; phones, iPads among others.

The police has also raided this plaza countless times and confiscated property deemed stolen or fake. Arrests are made every now and then, but of course the culprits get out. It seems, though, that old habits die hard on the plaza that was once Kampala’s leading source of household electronics.
