Chinese students who studied in Oregon have long been deceived by Apple. The catch was revealed only now, and savvy scammers are already being tried.
During 2017, they sent to the Apple service fake smartphones from China, which they issued as broken ones. Most often used the explanation that the device does not turn on, so that on the other side did not notice the trick. He was not noticed successfully 1493 times – that was how many fakes the Chinese students managed to slip into Apple. The company estimates these smartphones at $ 895,800, or $ 600 for each iPhone.
What kind of models they were and how they were tested by the Apple service center, even when turned off, is unknown. Perhaps, in this division of the company from Cupertino, someone lost his job or the fakes were of very high quality. Or maybe both.Tags: Apple, Chinese, fake, fooled, iPhone, real, receiving, return, sending, service, students
