Greedy iPhone Ebayer gets scammed!

liveleak.com/vie…988liveleak.com/vie…988

A Dallas man waiting in line for 12 hours at the Dallas Apple Store for an iPhone made a cool $800 for pretty much nothing (video: MyFoxDFW). A unidentified woman drove up fifteen minutes before the store opened and bought his top place in line for $800.

She showed up with over $16,000 and was hoping to buy all the iPhones at the store. Her plan was for a big payday by selling the iPhones on ebay.

She should have invested a little more time in her business plan. AT&T limited the sale of the iPhone to one per customer.

At least one guy made a good business move: he got a iPhone and $800.

so how did he get one, did he just let her infront of him or did she replace him in the queue?

He went to back of the queue and as it was one per customer there was enough to go round

I see, quality!

Oh, i assumed he had given his place and gone to back of queue :oops:

:lol:

Struggling to believe this though, Would she actually make $800 that quick anyway?

I suspect that it's a publicity stunt too.

strange, would have thought the guy who didnt want the iphone would have been more willing to give up his space in the queue ? maybe they all splitted it, publicity crap

I thought that....

Thats acting

And not even good acting :whistling:

It all looks a bit staged to me. Would of been funny if true though.

Yeah, watching it a 2nd time it does all look very staged.

yep it definateley looks staged.

what I want to now is why is he paying for the phone on his card when he has $800 dollars in his pocket??!?!?!?!

What a load of rubbish, Americans think we are all as thick as them

Its independance day tomorrow, I think its about time we revoked it.

Is he even old enough to get a Credit card?
Would have to be a debit.
Notice that you never see the side of it with his name or Card type (Visa/Mastercard)

Besides everyone that bought one of them got pwned.
The iPhone is a useless piece of crap.
Who at Apple had the brainwave to make it not 3G and to make it unable to text message.
It plays music and you cant use mp3's as ringtones, seriously, bunch of idiots.

I laughed as I read the post before I watched the video, then I saw the bad acting in the video and laughed harder :giggle:

Only since you guys mentioned it looks staged, you may well be right...

You can see on the video that she walks in and the guy who she gave the money to was next in line, does look very staged.

Plus, if I was in that que, I would kick up a fuss about her cutting in, or would at least want a share on the money!

Yep, it definitely looks staged, and I have to agree with Ronaldeano's sentiments - apparently though (well, it's how much the Apple US site is selling it for anyway), the 8GB iPhone costs $599.00 :w00t:

That's a load of bull about not being able to text on the iPhones, of course you can.

It's still a over-hyped peice of iJunk.

Oh, I just had to :giggle:

Looked into it, and dotn know where i saw it but you can text.
But thats about it, cant do MMS so no picture messaging,

The handset has also been criticised because it does not use the 3G … The handset has also been criticised because it does not use the 3G network, does not support instant messaging or voice-activated dialling and does not let people choose ringtones beyond the 25 pre-installed on it.



Theres phones been out for months that beat it hands down.
Thw Sony W950 was out last year, touch-screen 4Gb, 3G and including all the other features Apple missed.

Indeed, it makes you wonder how they justify the high price tag.
