Earlier this week we reported that a kid from Brooklyn managed to sell $130,000 worth of white iPhone 4 parts online. In the process, he also managed to gain the interest of a private investigator, who has now been identified as working for Apple.
Lam told reporters that he was getting the parts directly from inside sources at Foxconn. Foxconn is denying it today, through a statement to the Taiwanese stock exchange. Go figure.
I’m not surprised that Foxconn is denying it, and I’m not surprised that the private investigator was working for Apple. Hopefully Lam has a good lawyer and proof that he got the parts legitimately from Foxconn because this could get messy.
