(KTVI)-  Fake ads online have some people believing they can charge their new iPhone 6 in the microwave.    The hoax has gotten enough attention to garner a tweet from the Los Angeles Police Department.

The ad appears to have been Photoshopped to look exactly like an official apple ad.   It’s called “Wave” and says new iPhone 6 users can put their phone in the microwave for a quick charge.

Some people fell for the fake ad and learned it wasn’t true.   The fake ads have been circulating since the iOS debut last Wednesday.
