Students busted for making $900,000 in fraudulent Apple iPhone returns
A pair of Oregon college students from China have been charged in a fraudulent iPhone return scheme that allegedly netted them nearly a million dollars.
The pair of students, Yangyang Zhou and Quon Jiang, are alleged to have sent fake iPhones back to Apple claiming they did not work. When the tech giant sent a new, legitimate replacement phone, the pair would sell them to a broker -- usually overseas, according to a federal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Oregon last month. Both students would get a cut of the profit, federal prosecutors allege. All of the sales were done online....
Interesting how the headline cleverly omits the mention of China. It should read, "Chinese students at Oregon Univ. involved in iPhone theft" because without China, the story makes no sense. It wasn't a Colombian students trading fake iPhones with friends in Cartagena, Colombia. It wasn't Finnish students trading iPhones with friends in Helsinki. It wasn't Swiss students trading iPhones with friends in Geneva. It wasn't Israeli students trading iPhones with friends in Tel Aviv. It wasn't poor American students trading iPhones with friends in the hollows of Appalachia. It wasn't tough street kids of Chicago trading iPhones with the districts in Chicago where even the Police Fear to Tread. It wasn't Michigan students trading iPhones with friends in the bombed-out areas of Detroit, Michigan. I think you get the idea. Without China, there is no news here.
