Two New York truckdrivers and an accomplice decided the best way to make easy money was to crack open a shipment of 300 iPhones bound for Hong Kong, pull the phones out of the bottom of the shipping crate, throw in some reams of paper for weight and then re-shrinkwrap the package for delivery.
Unfortunately for the three men, the package didn't look quite right to an airline worker in Hong Kong, who alerted cops. The investigation led back to the Baldwin, LI shipping company that had transferred the iPhone crate, and the drivers who had sold the illicit phones (some on Craigslist) for an $80,000 (USD) windfall. The men were arrested in possession of $23,000 (USD) and just about to move to Florida.

For the record, iPhone is not officially available in Hong Kong (yet). However there are many people outside the available countries getting one through some sort of means and crack the official software.
