Could be legit, a lot of feedback but for small value items mostly. If it looks to good to be true, then it usually is.

Ahh sorry mate.

Item number: 310285833521

The reason I query it is that the seller has excellent feedback!

First time selling Mobile phones. Not sure where he got 50 Iphones from, at that price, I dont know how he is making profit. Apple have very strict distribution and strict pricing.

Also note: Shipped from Romania

Edit: Phone them 01594|841545 and say you want to pick up

No wonder he was Hacked the silly sellers password is (easily guessable) was easy for me to log-on using his details.


Merely the act of logging on could be seen as a criminal offence under the computer misuse act. Hope you were using some good proxies. Gary McKinnon did little more damage than just logging on and look what the American Government want to do to him. Regardless of that it does highlight the importance of having an un-guessable password. Perhaps someone should message him and explain a) how to cancel an item (perhaps now you have access to his account you could do this for him) and b) how to change his password.

Would recommend you delete the password from your post to ensure there is no further unauthorised access, this guy has already had his fair share of it.

That buyer must have paid - the auction requires immediate payment with paypal.

Ebay should have been able to spot this was a hacker, a different IP address etc, when I've logged onto my laptop instead of my PC, I'm always asked to prove it's me and I have a phone call at my home number, why haven't they done it with this seller's account?!

He sent me this email...

''Hi,

The price for 1 BRAND NEW Apple iPhone 4 32GB 32 GB 4G HD FACTROY UNLOCKED is 500 Euro with free shipping and if you buy more i will make considerable discount.
The iphone works with any sim card in the world. It will remain unlocked even when you upgrade the iPhone software in future. It's Original Apple iPhone with 1 Year International Warranty.
I can ship it like a gift so you won't have to pay custom taxes.
I will ship it through UPS air express so you can receive it in 2-3 days.For payment i accept only Western Union money transfer.
If you are interested to buy please provide me your full name,phone# and shipping address so i can make a reservation at the UPS agency and i will get back to you with my details so you can make the payment.
Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks,
Adrian




So I replied with this...

''Can I buy 10 of these? As I need to resell and put the money towards getting this MUG tattoo that certainly you believe I have plastered across my forehead



Would you also receive the monies if I withdrew 500 ‘euro’ and post it down the drain (which would be the equivalent of send money as a gift to your bad self!



Please let me know asap!

Never done that for me, and I doubt they would as most adsl services have a dynamic IP so have a new one all the time.


they've done it to me a couple of times, which is bloody annoying if I'm at work and they want to call me at home

Gary did a little more damage than that, actually. Despite the subsequent claims that he just logged in and looked around, the reality is more this:

Gary McKinnon
It was not a mistake that there was a huge security stand down on September 11 last year … I am SOLO. I will continue to disrupt at the highest levels


Which he posted on a pentagon computer. Guilty as sin...

Oh shut up, seriously.

Thousands and thousands of accounts are logged into non-legitimately every hour of the day, 99.999% of the time nothing happens.

You remind me of people who shout "STEROIDS ARE BAD FOR YOU 100% OF THE TIME" when they know **** all about the drug.

Oh some text in notepad, how damaging and destructive. Certainly warrants an extradition, claimed costs to repair in the millions, and many years in prison to make him a scape goat for the terrorists cause you "don't mess with the big boys in America". But you would think the Government would have not used the default passwords. Pretty much anyone with even the slightest comprehension of a programming language/scripting could have done what Gary did with a little effort. He could have done far more damage such as deleting or modifying actual files.

If the Government has nothing to hide, why are they so concerned about someone accessing their computers?!

It is kind of different when someone is actually using the account to scam people. Could one assume someone logging in may be in touch with the scammer perhaps?!
