A Facebook user offered a free iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8 with purchase of "any two Apple iPhones, Samsung mobiles, Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, MacBook, Playstation 4 and games".

The 'promotion' was posted in a local Facebook group and was also accompanied by photos showing numerous iPhone handsets.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, that's because it's probably isn't true.

Stomper Yuanquan decided to play along with the seller, who had messaged him privately on Facebook.

He pretended to be interested in buying 1,000 sets of the 256GB iPhone X and was told that they would cost 3,000 Saudi Riyals (around S$1,077) each.

On Apple Singapore's official website, a 256GB iPhone X is priced at S$1,888.

The seller does not seem to be too skilled at mathematics either, telling Yuanquan that he would get "50 pieces of iPhone 7 for free" instead of what should be 500.

Things took an even more hilarious turn when the Stomper said he wanted 3,000 iPhone Xs instead and was told to transfer a deposit of 5,000 Saudi Riyals (around S$1,796) to a bank account in Nigeria first.

Yuanquan told Stomp: "Scammers are really very free to entertain me, but I am very free to play along too."
