Teen May Face Legal Troubles For Selling White iPhone Kits Online

By on Nov 17, 2010 at 7:12 am

Lei Lam, a 17-year-old New Yorker, may soon see the inside of the court room for selling white iPhone kits online over the last six months. According to The New York Observer, Lam had been ordering genuine white iPhone 4 parts from a source at Foxconn, which he puts together as a kit to allow people with black iPhones to convert them to white. His sales have earned him $130,000 which he states has helped him pay for college. His business however, may soon come to an end.

A private investigator delivered a letter to the young entrepreneur warning him of possible jail-time and monetary fines from selling “stolen or counterfeit goods.” Lam refuses the acknowledge these accusations and has yet to receive an official letter from Apple. He does plan on seeking advice from counsel, in the event this case comes to court.
