pickens writes “A midlevel Apple manager was arrested Friday and accused of accepting more than $1 million in kickbacks from half a dozen Asian suppliers of iPhone and iPod accessories in a federal indictment unsealed and a separate civil suit. Paul Shin Devine, a global supply manager, and Andrew Ang, of Singapore, were named in a 23-count federal grand jury indictment for wire fraud, money laundering and kickbacks. ‘Apple is committed to the highest ethical standards in the way we do business,’ Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said in a statement. ‘We have zero tolerance for dishonest behavior inside or outside the company.’ The alleged scheme used an elaborate chain of US and foreign bank accounts and one front company to receive payments, the indictment said, and code words like ‘sample’ were used to refer to the payments so that Apple co-workers wouldn’t become suspicious.”
