I'm just amazed at the number of fools prepared to be parted from their money.

£250 for a 2 month old 32GB iphone from a new member? Anyone thinking that it was genuine must be a contender for the most gullible HUKD member of the year award. :roll: They should be grateful that the mods are awake!

He refused to add images which is why he has been suspended, suddenly at the mention of police he decided it was all too much hassle on this forum

bet someone still deals via PM, just to get it first :roll:

Its not a requirement, only a recommendation -particularly when asked by a mod.

I agree with him that the FS forum is too much hassle.

I deleted it because my stalker ASB would probably suspend me for actually pointing out something that would require them doing something useful.


LOL.........

But your point was valid. Dealing by PM before agreement on a sale is against the rules.

Maybe they're afraid of getting arrested! :w00t:

That's what I thought too!

Guess we'll never know. If he's got any sense (and not a scammer) he'll toodle over to ebay with the advise he could make another £100 and thank the mods for putting him to his senses by not trading here! :w00t:

So you get the details when you exchange cash for iphone, if not, back out. He wasn't given a chance, being suspended and all.
#37
no he was trying to deal by pm apparently no one else needed to know lol i tried to get him back to the thread, i asked for details on collection like proof that he owned it and he refused, i asked for pics on the thread he said no, i asked him to go back to the thread he wouldn't he said just come and collect it, i said yeah maybe im not too bothered about being scammed a member of family is a police officer, he said its too much hassle lol

before you jump on me i wouldn't really have collected it without pics on the thread and more info i just wanted to see what he would say

Lots of people jumped in very quick for a cheap phone.
To good to be true ? or was it genuine ?

Please refrain from acting like the village idiot. Your attempted put downs are a sad reflection on you. :thumbsup:


As for the iphone alert, we know that quite often a scammer will go under cover in an attempt to get a quick sale and run. Thanks to the members looking out for one another as always :thumbsup:
