Following reports that Apple has filed suit against a New York City teenager Fei Lam and his parents, regarding his activities wherein he made over $130,000 (more on that in a minute) in selling, as conversion kits for black iPhone 4s, ill-gotten white iPhone 4 parts, Lam has sat down with Fast Company for an interview.

Lam, giving responses typical of a teenager, who might or might not have bubbles in his fish tank, notes that a settlement has not been reached. Here are a few of the Q&As:

Q: When did you first find out about the lawsuit? Did Apple call or send a letter?
A: I came back from school today and saw your email. Lol.

Q: So have your parents mostly been handling the case then?
A: I told Apple’s lawyer that I’m sick and to meet when I get better. That was last week. I’m [sic] been handling the whole thing

Q: So you have not settled?
A: I think that will be decided in the meeting.

Lam also notes that he no longer has a lawyer representing him, as his family cannot afford on. His response to the first question, makes it sound as if his family is taking care of the issue, and he’s being left out.

He didn’t reveal exact numbers however, but it’s likely that most of the money, whatever was made, went to his supplier.
