Fake Apple Stores Pop Up In China

There are plenty of reports of counterfeit iPhones and iPads popping up here and there, but fake Apple stores? That’s a new one.

Reuters has more: “Complete with the white Apple logo, wooden tables and cheery staff claiming they work for the iPhone maker, the store looks every bit like Apple Stores found all over the world, according to the blogger, who goes by the name ‘BirdAbroad.’ But Apple has no stores in Kunming and only 13 authorized resellers in the city, who are not allowed to call themselves Apple Stores or claim to work for Apple.”

The International Business Times has a great photo spread of these various fake stores.
