REUTERS: Roberto Escobar, brother of Pablo Escobar is trying to peddle his branded folding smartphones.

At first, tech reviewers pointed out that Pablo Escobar Inc was actually just repackaging the Samsung Galaxy Fold and that most orders were never delivered. Now Escobar Inc has a new offering — refurbished iPhone 11 Pros for $499. The company is also coming clean about its intentions to make Robert Escobar “the overstock king-pin.”

In an announcement today, the company said it is selling a limited run of formerly damaged iPhone 11 Pros with 256 GB. The phones have been repaired and gold-plated. Though if they’re anything like the Escobar Fold 2 that Brownlee got a hold of, that gold-plating is more like an aluminium foil sticker.

Allegedly, the phones will ship with original Apple accessories, such as the cable, charger and headphones. Escobar Inc has engraved its logo on the back, and if the phone actually arrives, it will come in a luxury wooden box.

“This is my way of fighting Apple, I sell their phones at a lower price and mine are gold-plated with nice girls showing them off. Apple can never do that,” Roberto Escobar said in a (lewd) statement — the company’s YouTube channel is full of women in lingerie holding and smashing smartphones. Apparently, Escobar has also filed a lawsuit against Apple seeking $2.6 billion.

What it all really comes down to is this: “Our goal is to uphold Mr Escobar’s dreams of becoming the overstock king-pin and this is one step towards that direction,” said Escobar Inc. CEO Olof Gustafsson.

Personally, that’s not a cause I want to donate $499 to — and I do consider it a donation because it’s likely that only tech reviewers and influencers will ever receive the device. Though, some people may gamble for the chance to get the iPhone 11 Pro for $499 instead of its current retail price of $999.
