A New York teen with a passion for electronics and serious initiative got tired of waiting for White iPhone 4s. So, he skipped Apple and ordered the necessary parts directly from Foxconn. Now he has $130,000 – and legal threats.
Seventeen year old Fei Lam, only a high school senior, said the following:
“I knew a guy from a few years back that had somewhat of a relationship with folks in Foxconn.”
This “guy” was able to export the exact same components that go into Apple’s certified phones straight to Queens, where Fei packaged them up and sold them online as conversion kits over at www.WhiteiPhone4Now.com
This lucrative business has netted him $130,000, and possibly jail time as well. Recently he received a letter accusing the enterprising lad of “selling stolen goods.” Fei isn’t sure who the letter was sent on behalf of but worries he might face the staggering six-figure fines or imprisonment that face others convicted of selling “stolen goods” online.
