Arrested For Selling Fake iPhones Made Of... Clay

Arrested for Selling Fake iPhones Made of...Clay

I'm pretty sure this isn't a real iPhone. Call it a hunch.

Japan's News24 reports that in South Korea, three men were arrested for selling nearly 300 iPhone boxes filled with clay to a Chinese merchant for the equivalent of rough $150,000.

The clay filled boxes were sealed in plastic and weighed as much as the real deal. The group seems to have mixed in real phones, and hoped that the buyer wouldn't open all the boxes. It's the iPhone version of a briefcase full of paper with real money on the top.

    I'm sure there's a Horatio joke in there somehwere

      Its a shame they weren't Android devices, they would have had access to the Google Clay store.

    It’s the iPhone version of a briefcase full of paper with real money on the top.

    That sentence just gave me a horrible thought. When the governments of the world fail, and the corporations are in control, those that live under Apple's rule will use iPhones as currency.

    My mind is a scary place sometimes.
