Pablo Escobar’s Brother Is Suing Apple For $2.6 BILLION Over Alleged iPhone Security Failure
Roberto previously had beef with, among others, Elon Musk and Netflix (he wanted $100 million and $1 billion in payment from each respectively), and has now moved his attention to Apple over what he says is a security flaw in his iPhone X.
His lawsuit is asking Apple to pay him $2.6 BILLION because he claimed his iPhone X was hacked after an Apple employee expressed to him that the phone was the most secure on the market, reports TMZ.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Pablo’s brother bought an iPhone X back in April 2018, and he claims the security promise fell horribly flat. One year after buying the X, Roberto claims he got a life-threatening letter from someone named Diego, who said he found Roberto’s address through FaceTime.
In the docs, Pablo’s bro says he had to relocate for his safety, and lost a ton of money beefing up his security … not to mention the emotional distress he says he suffered as a result of the security breach. Roberto claims he had several assassination attempts on his life before buying the iPhone X, and only bought the phone because he’d been assured his info would be safe from hackers.
In the suit, Roberto says he conducted his own investigation after receiving the letter, and found his iPhone had been compromised due to a FaceTime vulnerability.
On top of that, Escobar is also now selling a limited edition gold-plated iPhone 11 Pro 256GB, called the Escobar Gold 11 Pro, for $499 in an effort to show Apple customers that they have been getting ripped off, overpaying for their phones that aren’t even covered in gold.
On the website for the phone, Escobar says he will show proof of “how the people of the world were scammed by Apple Inc, buying crap for crazy prices.”
He was already selling a foldable smartphone called the Escobar Fold 1 for just $349 and $499 and three months ago launched the Escobar Fold 2, also at a reduced price.
Should Roberto win his $2.6 BILLION lawsuit against Apple he claims he will “ultimately donate it all” back to the people who bought iPhones.
