Christmas was ruined for a bloke after an iPhone he ordered online turned out to be two bars of chocolate wrapped up in a toilet roll.
Daniel Carroll has since complained to delivery company DHL after spending £1,000 on an iPhone 13 Pro Max only to receive Cadbury’s White Oreo chocolate bars.
The parcel was delayed by two weeks and had been put back on numerous occasions before Daniel decided to collect it from the nearest warehouse in West Yorkshire.
But when he picked up the box it became clear to him that it had been tampered with.
The bloke from Leeds claims there was no phone in at all but just two bars of chocolate and some 'stinking' toilet roll, LadBible reports.
Daniel said: “I ordered the phone on December 2 through the Apple website, but due to stock the earliest day for delivery was December 17.
“Last Friday on the day it was due to be delivered I had several conflicting updates from DHL.
“At first it said ‘out for delivery’, then scanned as ‘delayed’, then back to ‘out for delivery between 13:45-14:45’. I stayed in all day and nothing arrived.

"I went onto the tracking and selected to have the parcel collected from their depot, and it advised it would be available for collection on Saturday.
“On Monday I did a 24-mile-round-trip to collect the parcel. When I got home I could tell the box had been tampered with as the tape was quite loose, but because I could feel some weight I just opened it.

“Inside there was cheap industrial toilet roll, which stunk, and two bars of Dairy Milk Oreo in there.”
He later added that the phone was meant to be a Christmas present and he is unable to get a replacement without the results of an investigation.
A spokesperson for DHL said: “We're investigating the case as a priority and we have been in touch with the sender to ensure a replacement gets to Mr Carroll."
