Apple Confirms Alleged Email Exchange Between Steve Jobs and Customer is Fake

Apple Confirms Alleged Email Exchange

Talk about deceit. This morning, an alleged email exchange between Apple CEO Steve Jobs and an angry iPhone 4 owner by the name of “Tom” was first published on Boy Genius Report. As with any other email correspondence by Steve Jobs, the exchange was quickly blown out of proportion and published on several other sites, including Erictric. Now, according to Fortune, Apple has confirmed that the heated conversation is nothing but utterly fake.

Additionally, Apple has independently confirmed to Engadget that Steve Jobs never wrote those messages. To make matters worse, it appears that BGR shamefully [and may I say embarrassingly] obtained exclusivity on the fake conversation by purchasing it  for an undisclosed amount of money from a desperate individual based in Richmond, Virginia named Jason Burford, who pretended to be “Tom” in the exchange. AppleInsider claims that Burford offered them exclusivity on the fake story a couple of days ago.

This really goes to show that many of these alleged replies from Steve Jobs should be really taken with a grain of salt. Email exchanges are really, really easy to fake. It’s the duty of bloggers and news publications to verify their sources and the legitimacy of their claims. Now, about the rest of those email exchanges…
