The report said authorities in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province received calls for help earlier this week from a man who said he bought a fake iPhone 6 from an online shop. A day later, another victim came forward saying he bought three of the fake gadgets for the same price. Investigators later found the phones were sold by a local woman, aged around 20.

The suspect said she was selling the phones for a friend in Guangdong for a commission and had no idea they were fake.
