After the theft of the iPhone or iPad the attackers get in touch with the owners and taking advantage of their credulity, are led to decouple the device from the account.
The user of the stolen iPhone, and then, after some time, it is found on the Savelovsky radio market.

He reports that the device is in service center, he was allegedly brought the man who bought it on the Savelovsky radio market, brought to unlock.
The user is prompted to unlock your device for security purposes, then what “Andrew” offers the new owners hold, and the owner to come and pick up your iPhone or iPad to the service center. After that, the phone turned off. Always calling from different numbers, specify the address Khimki, street Youth, D. 15A. At the moment, was of the order of 10 such cases.
As we already wrote, not all users understand that this is a hoax and refuse to detach a gadget from the account.
