Apple (APPL) Is Suing An Amazon Seller Over These Fake Items

Apple has filed a new lawsuit, alleging that 90% of iPhone devices and Apple accessories it purchased from an Amazon seller were counterfeit. Amazon is not named in the lawsuit.

The tech giant’s lawsuit is targeting Mobile Star, LLC, alleging that it is selling phony power products on Amazon that “pose a significant risk of overheating, fire, and electrical shock.”

According to Apple, they bought more than 100 items from this seller through Amazon directly. The seller is not a third party seller. Items the company bought include power cords, lightning cables, and iPhone devices. Amazon had sourced these products from Mobile Star.

Apple says it filed the lawsuit “to protect its customers from dangerous counterfeit power products such as power adapters and charging cables.”
