Pablo Escobar’s brother sues Apple for $ 2.3 billion over alleged iPhone security defects – BGR | Instant News

  • Pablo Escobar’s brother, Robert, sued Apple for $ 2.3 billion.
  • The lawsuit claims FaceTime’s security flaw puts Robert’s life in danger.

Apple is no stranger to frivolous lawsuits, but a new lawsuit from Pablo Escobar’s brother might be taken. In a story that seems to be lifted straight out Shallot, the brother of the most cruel and famous drug king in history, alleged that the lack of security on his iPhone X had almost ended killing him.

According to the lawsuit, Robert Escobar alleged that a mysterious man named Diego was able to find out Escobar’s address through a FaceTime call. After that, Diego began sending threatening letters to his home, eventually forcing him to move.

According to the lawsuit, the first time it was revealed by TMZ, Escobar claims that the move caused a lot of emotional stress and ended up spending a lot of money. Escobar also alleged that he had to hire additional security because of the ongoing threats to his life. Regarding the essence of the lawsuit, Escobar claims that he was convinced by an Apple employee that the iPhone X he bought was safe and would be resistant to hackers.

So how does FaceTime compromise Escobar’s address? Well, Escobar did his own investigation and reached a rather strange conclusion. To be honest, most of the claims don’t make any sense at all so we can’t imagine this case running in a meaningful way. And as the cherries above, Escobar sues Apple with $ 2.6 billion.

Now if you look at the name Escobar mentioned with Apple it seems familiar, there is an interesting reason why. Late last year, Escobar said he planned to sue Apple for $ 30 billion because the company was deceiving people by “selling worthless cellphones.” And at the same time Escobar made these threats, he launched a $ 350 foldable smartphone made of gold which he said was “unbreakable.”

Escobar at the time said he was ready to face companies like Apple and Google in the smartphone room.

“My cellphone can’t be damaged,” Escobar boasted, “because I don’t have to make a glass screen like Samsung. Our screens are made of a special type of plastic, and we still have the best resolution. Our special plastic is very difficult to break. “

Now if that sounds crazy, what’s even crazier is that the product was actually shipped. Yeah sort of. The device is only a Galaxy Fold with gold foil wrapped around it. As the old saying goes, truth is stranger than fiction.
