China: Authorities act against fake Apple iPhone factory, 9 arrested
July 28 , 2015
Nine people have been arrested in a crackdown on a fake iPhones factory on the outskirts of China’s capital Beijing, authorities revealed.
The factory, run by a husband and wife, had made more than 40,000 fake Apple phones, with workers repacking old smartphone parts and passing them off as new Apple iPhones for export.
Though the factory was discovered in May, the public security bureau had not revealed the news until now. US authorities had alerted Chinese officials to the fake racket, reports said.
