A man in China found his iPhone 6, bought for RMB2,400 through Wechat, was a counterfeit after discovering its operating system was Android instead of Apple’s IOS, according to mainland newspaper Morning Express.
The report said authorities in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province received calls for help earlier this week from a man who said he bought a fake iPhone 6 from an online shop. A day later, another victim came forward saying he bought three of the fake gadgets for the same price. Investigators later found the phones were sold by a local woman, aged around 20.
The suspect said she was selling the phones for a friend in Guangdong for a commission and had no idea they were fake.
