Chinese firm busted for mass-producing fake iPhones

Beijing, July 25 (IANS) Police in China have cracked down on a Beijing-based company which allegedly made more than 40,000 fake Apple iPhones worth about $19.6 million, a media report said on Saturday.

Police said they arrested nine suspects and found six assembly lines and more than one million cell phone parts in the company’s factory, Xinhua reported.

Police started investigating the company in May after fake China-made cell phones were seized in the US.

Officials said the company bought old phone mainboards from other countries and fake parts with logos from the city of Shenzhen.

The company hired hundreds of workers who assembled the parts and then sold the fake phones to other countries, police said.
