In Russia, counterfeit cash receipts for the iPhone 14 began to be sold, Izvestia writes.

The sellers assure that to make a check of any large chain store – re: Store, M.Video – Eldorado, DNS, Svyaznoy, MTS, Beeline, MegaFon and others. Sales are met through Telegram channels. The cost of one check is 1 thousand rubles.

Fake checks are made to make property sellable on listing sites. Perhaps consumers expect to capitalize on the difference in the prices of gadgets in the gray and white markets.

For example, having bought a gray iPhone, a person can suddenly hand it over with a fake check to a chain storewhere it is very expensive. It will be very difficult to do this, since large stores check the iPhone not only by receipt.

Under federal law, there is an electronic accounting system: any check has an “electronic footprint”, and every purchase is easy to check.

Fake checks are also being used to turn gray iPhones in for free warranty repairs.. The sellers of checks claim that this is possible.

I do not think that any of the employees of the service center will check your check with the Federal Tax Service [чтобы подтвердить подлинность].

At the same time, representatives say that one check is not enough for warranty repairs.

All checks issued in our network have special identifiers and are registered in the database, so it is not possible to return a smartphone for repair using a fake check.

Did anyone manage to make a gray iPhone for warranty repairs using a fake check, it is not specified. [Известия]
