Homeless people hired to buy iPhones
September 22 , 2013
A businessman hired dozens of homeless people in Pasadena yesterday to buy new iPhones for him. The plan might have worked well if he hadn't started boasting about his strategy while standing in line.
Apple employees soon stopped selling the devices to those hired and the businessman was taken out of there for his own safety since the homeless people ended up turning their anger to him for not being paid their promised money anymore.
One of them who was promised $40 said "it didn't go right. I stood there all night."
The homeless people were stranded and it has been estimated that about 80 of them were recruited in Los Angeles and driven to the Pasadena store.
According to a spokesman, no arrests have been yet made in the matter since "it's a business issue."
