  • Apple picker goes to prison


    A man from Kalamazoo, Michigan is on his way to jail for allegedly defrauding Apple out of an estimated 9,000 iPods.

    What did he do?

    The twenty-three-year-old man, who plead guilty to mail fraud earlier this year, devised a way to obtain the serial numbers of iPod shuffles still under warranty.

    By pretending to be an irate Apple customer with a malfunctioning unit that warrants a free replacement, the brazen criminal obtained more than 9,000 iPods and then sold them at a discount for profit.

    A federal judge sentenced the man to 13 months in prison. He also has to pay nearly $650,000 in restitution to Apple.

    A defense lawyer on the case was quoted saying that the court "showed leniency" with that punishment.

      $650,000 in debt, 13 months in jail, a big black mark on his record... and the thing he's probably regretting the most is that he never made it to 10k.

      lmao hahahahah

      I used to do this with PC games a while back at EB Games. We bought a game, then made a copy, returned it, then took another one, friend returned it make a copy, and so one. At EB games one person could only do it twice with each game because you had to sign.

      Ehm, i would say "A big Red mark on his rear", and a great plastic surgery bill on @ss rebuilding. You better bring some ipod to prison, for exchange...
