People in China Pay $1 a Month to Have Their e-mails Read “Sent From My iPhone”

Have you ever received an e-mail from a person and at the very bottom of the e-mail it reads ‘sent from my iPhone’? Well, apparently there is a market for this. People who want to have this signature at the bottom of their e-mails can pay a company $12 a year and they can add the signature line at the bottom.

Apparently, the demand is so high that people are actually falling for this. They don’t want to pay the $800 it costs to buy an iPhone so I guess they think, $1 a month is pretty awesome, I’ll make people believe I have an iPhone for basically free!

A Chinese sales site called Taobao say “The iPhone is too expensive. If you don’t want to spend that money, then fake it!” After you sign up for the service you are prompted to give them your password and they will set you up with an awesome signature line to make people believe you have one.

Of course you wouldn’t fall for this silly and ridiculous offer. The offer is trying to target users of China’s QQ Messaging service which is used by younger people who are not really familiar with their technologies yet. So here, I’ll spare you a $1 and teach you how it’s done.
