Russian conmen punt iPhoneys

Rotten Apples

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Russian confidence tricksters have started manufacturing their very own iPhone clone, but it only runs long enough to convince the mark to part with his money.

Russian news site Cifrovik, which has a pic of the device, reports that conmen are equipping an iPhone shell with a backlit panel and some electronics that light up long enough to show the Apple logo. This can be enough to convince a dupe that it's a working iPhone with a dead battery.

A small bar of metal is added for weight, to complete the uber-phone experience.

Only when he tries to charge his new phone will the mark find that it isn't really bona fide must-have Apple gadgetry.

At least the battery won't fail when they most need it, and a sucker can always try to find someone equally gullible in the pub to take it off their hands. ®
