For most iPhone lovers, the only thing the latest iPhone, iPhone 7 is going to get them is class, but for this shrewd Chinese woman, the iPhone 7 has gotten her a new house.

The story of the woman was first published in a blog post on Chinese platform Tian Ya Yi Du, where a user by the name Proud Qiaoba wrote about a colleague who tricked each of her 20 boyfriends to get her an iPhone 7 each.

On receiving all the 20 iPhone 7, the woman who is being referred to as Xiaoli on Chinese social networking website, Weibo, sold the phones on the Hui Shou Bao website, and made around CNY 120,000.

Though shrewd, Xiaoli is a smart woman. The proceeds from the sale of the iPhone 7 units went into paying the down-payment for her new home in the countryside.

Proud Qiaoba who posted the story went on to tell a little about Xiaoli’s background and what she thinks about how she made the money for the new house.

She wrote: “Her parents are getting old and she might be under a lot pressure hoping to buy them a house… But it’s still unbelievable that she could use this method!”

While some people have lauded her scheme, others have not been so kind to her ways.

One Internet user in China posted, “I can’t even find one boyfriend. She can actually find 20 boyfriends at the same time and even get them to buy her an iPhone 7. Just want to ask her to teach me such skills.” But another called Xiaoli “the most shameless person.”
