One of the biggest tech giants on Earth was scammed by a 24-year-old man from England. The man came up with an idea how to use a hole in Apple’s iPhone mending and substitution program that brought him $43,000. The UK citizen, Edward Hornsey, was accused of setting a plan in which he would get old iPhones and then send them to Apple repair service and will receive a brand new iPhone back as a replacement. Edward then would sell phones with a profit for him, not even mentioning that the plan was totally legal and didn’t hurt anyone, except for people, whose stolen iPhones Hornsey bought online to use in the fraud.
Police said that Edward knew that phones were stolen because he was checking each one of them in the UK’s register database. But, though he was aware that phones were stolen, he still sent them to the repair center and got a new one instead. But one of the devices was the cause of Edward’s failure as it was figuring in a burglary case. Officials state that Hornsey wasn’t an experienced cheater as he was running all this business from his parent’s house and he put all his earnings to his bank account.
If people like Edward were more honest, there would have been less cases of phone larceny
– said prosecutors.
