iPhone X is counterfeited in various ways. However, this clone is so accurate that it's actually very easy to be fooled just as the pair did.
A couple from Arizona, USA, spotted an offer to sell an iPhone X on the OfferUp website. The smartphone looked real with all the accessories and what's the most interesting – it cost $ 880 . The man who was able to stretch the cheater said that the above price is also not much less than the starting iPhone X ($ 999), so that the whole transaction seemed to be credible. Most importantly – there is no naivety here from the pair. Before they put out the money, they went to the seller and asked for a box. Then they called Apple and checked whether the IMEI and the serial number of the device indicate the real model. It turned out that yes. They paid and returned to the apartment. After opening the box, however, it turned out that it is not an iPhone X, and its perfect replica. Under the hood was another processor and the Android system with an iOS overlay almost indistinguishable at first glance. Only after entering the settings and finding the possibility of updating the system appeared a familiar view for all Android users. The fraudster offering the iPhone X on OfferUp had over 27 things sold and all opinions were positive . After the whole incident, he quickly stopped contacting him. As you can see, scammers have better and better ways to counterfeit iPhones. If we buy them from unofficial sources, it is often better to unpack the box next to the seller and check the goods from the place, including it. And the best if it is done by a person who will be able to distinguish a clone from the original in the blink of an eye . https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=73&v=XsBGp4qhtMU Source: ABC15
