Manufacturer Foxconn has denied selling white iPhone parts in a statement made through the Taiwanese stock exchange.

Last August, we pointed out WhiteiPhone4Now, a website selling white iPhone conversion kits. Earlier this week, the site's owner, Fei Lam, saw his project gain the attention of a private investigator who, according to Lam's attorney, was working for Apple.

In the story that broke on Wednesday, it was stated that Lam was believed to be buying the casings from Foxconn, the manufacturer that assembles a number of Apple products (among other things). Today, Foxconn is denying the claim.

Of course, we still don't know where Lam was getting his casings (the best-looking we're seen), or how apparently intact, legitimate white iPhone 4s are appearing elsewhere in China.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to get officially unavailable white iPhones into the hands of people willing to pay top dollar, no questions asked.
