A woman who purchased an iPhone 7 online immediately knew something didn't add up.
Instead of the new Apple device, Net user "Celene Mini" was shocked to the core to instead find an iPhone 3 and iPhone 4.
Along in the box was a  "fusion summon" card from the Japanese game Yu-Gi-Oh! that normally allows players to combine two monsters into a more powerful one. The seller apparently was suggesting the rule would apply to iPhones.
"I bought a rose gold iPhone 7, but I got a 3 and 4, and a fusion summon card. Do take me as a charity," "Celene Mini" shared on social media Thursday.
Hilarious comments ensued. "You can purchase two iPhone 7s and use the fusion card to make an iPhone 14," a Net user wrote.
News of similar scams seem to follow every iPhone release. A Jiangsu Province woman was burned in March after she bought an Apple iPhone 6 and instead received a knock-off phone branded with a pear.

Me, at the level of joke pulled - given a person has to have some memory of an old card game to get the reference.

"more tastier" How does that compare to less tastier (sic) ?
