iPhone User Annoyed At Apple After Almost Losing His Life Savings in Bitcoin

An unfortunate iPhone owner has reportedly raised allegations against popular American multinational technology company Apple Inc. after losing almost all of his life savings. However, the complainant has relayed to the public that he fell for a scam on his iPhone while trying to make the best use of Apple’s most cherished application collection- the iOS App Store. He had clearly stated that he was scammed of exactly 17.1 Bitcoin, which accounted for over $600,000 at that time.

The victim, Philippe Christodoulou, was reported to have tried to use the app store on his iPhone to search for Trezor with the sole intention of getting a wallet to store his Bitcoin. Unfortunately, scammers had taken advantage of the situation before it dawned on him that SatoshiLabs, the organization behind Trezor, did not create the application.
SatoshiLabs offers a Bitcoin wallet solely as a desktop application. This was unknown to Phillip as he met a fake application that carted away with his hard-earned 17.1 Bitcoin, which is over $600,000.
However, the victim has issued a complaint to the FBI stating that he is really annoyed at what happened. He also said that he is highly disappointed in Apple Inc. He claimed that Apple exhibits poor maintenance on their key features, and they will have to pay for his bad luck.

In a comment, Fred Sainz, a spokesman at Apple Inc., said that Apple is trying to ensure good maintenance of its well-to-do features as well as a good relationship with its customers. He went on to say that the firm is doing everything possible to ensure that the standard of the iOS app store is being maintained.
Information gotten from SatoshiLabs has shown that it has notified Apple Inc. about a fake app in early February. As such, it denies a connection of whatever sort regarding Phillipe’s misfortune. It was later discovered that the app was meant to retrieve personal data from unsuspecting people.
Phillipe allegedly deposited 17.1 Bitcoin out of his total 18.1 Bitcoin into the Trezor app. He was on the move to connect his mobile wallet to his computer before he found out that he has been scammed. In spite of all of this, Apple Inc. has not contacted Phillipe or spoken about the occurrence.
