According to a a Reuters report, Orange isn’t having any trouble drumming up interest in the iPhone launch in Poland today – in fact, it’s already got queues forming outside its shops. Nothing new there you might think.
Think again. The queuers are being paid to stand in line. From the article:
“We have these fake queues at front of 20 stores around the country to drum up interest in the iPhone,” a spokesman said.
Apparently, Orange’s iPhone attendees are actors. No word on whether there are genuine customers waiting there too, but Reuters says that T-Mobile, also due to launch the iPhone today, hasn’t seen any queues.
