Based on a report, a Chinese man named Wang Jiashu was arrested last May 3 at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 for trying to sell a fake Apple iPhone 7 to Jim Sydiongco, Chief of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

The CAAP Director General said that Wang Jiashu approached him and started offering a brand new Apple iPhone 7 for a suspicious price of only Php4,000. For a reference, the iPhone 7 has a starting price of around Php32,000 and can go up to around Php55,000.

Ed Monreal, General Manager of the Manila Internation Airport Authority (MIAA) ordered to have Wang arrested by the airport police. The suspect, which is from Zhejiang, China, was turned over to the Pasay police for the filing of charges. The MIAA general manager said that Wang had three more fake iPhone 7s and wristwatches with him.

Spotting a fake iPhone 7 isn’t really rocket science, especially when someone is trying to sell it to you for a price that’s even cheaper than most local smartphones today. If you’re gonna buy one, make sure to check it thoroughly to ensure that it’s authentic.
