My daughter got scammed yesterday into buying a Samsung Galaxy A71 phone for R2,400 cash. The story was it was an unwanted birthday gift being sold at 50% less than similar second hand phones. She put her SIM card in to make a call to test it was not blacklisted etc and it worked. It also booted up complete with Samsung logo, Samsung model number in settings, has a branded box, has branding on the phone, etc. Point is it seems to be a syndicate importing these "look alikes". But we took it to a Samsung shop who very quickly verified it was definitely not a Samsung phone at all.
