With the price of an iPhone 4S well out of reach of many Chinese consumers, these vendors are attempting to provide people with the prestige of owning an iPhone in a price bracket that is realistic. One vendor even went as far as publishing an advertisement that said, “The iPhone is too expensive. If you don’t want to spend that money, then fake it!”
Overall, it seems like a ridiculous service that is intended to take advantage of the less affluent and less educated customer. Also considering the customer is also giving out login credentials, it opens an entire other gateway of potential crime.
