eBay help for iPhone

Just come across this auction and wondered if it was too good to be true:

Item ID: 120308618261

He's just opened a eBay shop and has lots of high-valued electrical items there (phones, laptops, etc). He is also a registered business trader and as such can only conduct sales via PayPal.

However, his feedback score is low. Is it worth buying this or is it more hassle than what its worth?

Comments and thoughts please....

Its sold already...

If a seller suddenly have a lot of high tech gear for sale, that's not a good sign. He doesn't have any feedback from sales also. I wouldn't buy any of his other items... You can tell from all the pictures that he either just ripped it off other peoples' auctions or he has a huge house with many different locations to take the pictures.

He got no selling feedback and if he suddenly got so many high tech for sale, that's not a good sign.


Yeah its sold, but he's a lot of other phones in stock. How much am I covered by PayPal - the full £280 are only a proportion of this? Its approx £70 cheaper than the RRP PAYG one so I am tempted.

he has no feedback = paypal won't let him have full cover....... be covered up to £150 thats it

then again, if he wipes his paypal account of the money .... you get 0

I've also sent and received 3 emails with him so contact has been made - not sure if this would really make it more viable or not though

buy one off someone with high feedback ....... this is a high chance of being one big elaborate scam

if it looks too good to be true .......... IT IS

read ;)

you need feedback to get the £500 cover from paypal which he won't have......... he will remove the money asap & will try & hang you on past the 45 day limit to make a dispute .......

The fact that he says he got the stuff in his living room would make me jumpy. Wouldn't touch with a barge pole.

Cant you watch his feedback over the next week to see how ohers get on? Then when (if) he gets feedback, you are covered by PP?
#15
Yes that is what I shall do - however, I am thinking about waiting for a bit for the prices to drop
