Why people arguing freedom251 as a scam?

Here are points which looks as suspicious about the company.
#1:- Ringing Bells Pvt. Ltd haven’t confirmed the product
Freedom 251 is to be a child company of smartphone manufacturer ringing bells. But the company ringing bells haven’t confirmed that they have such a product. They haven’t listed freedom251 on their official website. This clearly shows that the product is a scam.
#2:- Looks like iPhone
The smartphone is clearly looks like Apple iPhone. It has a circular Touch ID which is similar to iPhone series. Anyway this is not an issue but the company is an Adcom branded smartphone where similar Adcom branded smartphone’s are listed for approximately Rs 4000. Then how a smartphone can be delivered for 251 Rs?
#3:- Website is not well maintained
The overall design of the website is not at all professional. If they are looking for more customers, they should have to maintain a professional website. Also many people reported that they are getting many types of errors while browsing through the site.
#4:- Website is just one week old
The website is only one week old one. While checking the whois details of the domain, it is only one week old and a quick creation. Here is what you could see on whois lookup.
The domain is only registered for one year. This makes the validity suspicious.
#5:- They should have to pay for Android 5.1
Even all the parts were manufactured in India, the OS is not. The website is showing that the product is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. Android OS is not in hands of India and it is based on US. So the company should have to pay more. So is it possible to make a device for 251 rs?

Final verdict
