Video of man being sold fake phone causes stir on social media
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported about a viral video of a man being sold a fake phone.
The video seen by Briefly News showed two men engaging in a transaction outside what looked like an office building.
The seller then was still trying to get a good price for the device and was waiting for the buyer to pay something appreciable.
After getting the man to part with some money, the seller took the phone out of the pocket of the buyer to check something.
It then appeared like the seller was changing his mind over the sale and tried convincing the buyer to pay more for the device
