Apple Manager Charged in Alleged Kickback Scheme

Kara Reeder reports that a mid-level Apple manager has been arrested for allegedly accepting more than $1 million in kickbacks from six Asian suppliers of iPhone and iPod accessories.


Paul Shin Devine, a global supply manager, and Andrew Ang have been indicted by a grand jury for wire fraud, money laundering and kickbacks. According to the indictment, says The Wall Street Journal, Devine provided the companies with confidential information that would let them negotiate favorable contracts with Apple in exchange for payments.


Devine is also facing a civil suit from Apple that claims he received more than $1 million in "payments, kickbacks and bribes" over several years.
