CHINA -- A woman from China is either really crafty or just heartless.
The scheme involved a woman convincing her '20 boyfriends' to each buy her a new iPhone 7, which she then sold to buy a house.
The BBC reports that she collected about $18,000 in the scheme, just enough for the down payment on the house.
It's not clear if the guys knew that they were being duped.
And while there have been a few negative comments online, others are applauding her hustle.
Some even wanting tips on how to get at least one boyfriend.
