Apple Hires Former FBI Agent to Combat Counterfeiters

Apple products and the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra are two of the most counterfeited products that are manufactured by Chinese counterfeiters. After hearing that statistic, it’s not surprising to hear that Apple chose to hire John Theriault, a former FBI agent and previous head of counterfeit prevention for Viagra manufacturer Pfizer. Theriault, now Apple’s global security chief, was hired back in 2008 as revealed by WikiLeaks cables. Together with his partner Don Shruhan, the two are responsible for stopping fake Apple products from coming out of places such as China and Hong Kong. These two individuals, with their security team, have a confidential counterfeit plan that attempts to circumvent the production and sale of fake Apple products.
