Brooklyn man busted in counterfeit iPhone trade-in scam

He’s a bad apple.

The feds have busted a Brooklyn man who they say has been scamming Apple by trading in damaged counterfeit iPhones for the real deal.

According to court papers, George Huang and others in the crew traded in approximately 4,400 knock-offs, worth $ 2.6 million between 2014 and 2016.

Huang, 24, and others made the shady exchanges at Apple stores throughout the country, according to the arrest complaint.

The counterfeits came “from shipments ordered from China,” authorities said.

Huang was arraigned Wednesday in Brooklyn federal court on charges he was conspiring to defraud Apple. He was released on $ 50,000 bond and also has to deposit another $ 1,000 with the court. His lawyer declined to comment on the charges.
