Can't wait for the iPhone 5 any longer? Then here's some good news: you won't have to wait much longer because Apple is going to be making its big reveal on September 12th. That's exactly one week from today, so let the countdown begin.

But if seven days is still too long for you, then I'd like to let you in on a little secret. How would you like to buy your own iPhone 5, right here, right now? And for just five measly bucks, too? Before you whip out your credit card--you're probably wondering, What's the catch?

With a great deal like this, of course there's bound to be one. So here it is: it's fake. In short, it doesn't work and it's not even a phone in the first place. All those iPhone 5 units that are currently in circulation? Sorry to have to break it to you but they're just models. Mock-ups. Cases that were made to look like the yet-to-be-released iPhone 5 and nothing more.

So put your cards back into your wallets, folks, and don't get fooled by ads, listings, and auctions selling the iPhone 5 because they're all fakes. Just wait one more week so you can get the real thing. Knowing Apple, it would probably be worth the wait.
