The website has issued a statement that reads, “We are sorry to announce that we have received a warning letter from some company who so-called authorized by Apple asking us to pull down the iPhone 5 Mod. In order to prevent further troubles we will stop selling the iPhone 5 Mod within next 48 hrs. Customers who have already ordered, we will still ship out your order on time and will only debit / capture your payment upon ship out. New customers who want to order, please order within the next 48 hours, we will process your order accordingly.”

The letter is not directly from Apple, but from a company which claims to be authorised by Apple. The company has sent the website a cease and desist letter and has listed out several points ordering to remove its content. In a related post by CNET, the website states, “No word from Apple yet on whether the letter is real. Companies often send cease and desist letters to other companies that are allegedly infringing on their copyrights as a warning -- a preamble to an actual lawsuit. Based on the sites photos, it appears the mod kit sports the Apple logo and the word "iPhone" on the case.”

We thought that the easiest and fastest way out is to convert our iPhone 4 / 4S to look just like iPhone 5. We gathered everything we could and finally succeed. We are now so happy to show everyone that we have an 'iPhone 5' on hand. If you can't wait for the iPhone 5 and want to try how it feels like holding one on your hand, you can get one from us now.”
