As the questions states, would a fake iPhone sync cable damage the iPhone If put to charge with it?
There are genuine Apple branded cables and cables marketed by reliable vendors such as Kensington or Belkin. Those are fine.
If you buy cheap knockoff cables from eBay for $2 including shipping anything is possible.
I asked that question for my brother, and he only charged the phone twice with it. Hopefully there was no damage
