He's sold the same thing 5 times:

Only the first 2 have a description stating locked to Vodafone.

Dunno if its a scam or a clueless seller.

If it seems tyo good to be true it probably is

I think there are more questions about eBay on this site than on eBay itself.

Anyway, other than price, what makes u think u have been conned?

Why don't you bid on his Playstation 2 auction, as it is pick up only.

While you are there, may as well get your £250 iphone 4 ?

****!



Paypal dispute

Contact Payap ASAP & al;so let ebay know,Of course it's a scam.

I'd be very suspicious..

Whenever i buy higher priced items, i really do my best to check out the seller, see whether they have sold/bought similar items. did you pay through paypal? hopefully your covered and if you dont receive the iphone, you should get your money back. I would of been suspicious about the price, £250 for a 32gb iphone 4, if it sounds to good to be true it usually is. Good luck & hope it works out for you.

Does seem strange they haven't anything on ebay since last August and then all of a sudden find 6 iPhones to sell. All of which were listed and sold within a couple of days.

Also £250 for a brand new 32gb iPhone 4 ? These should be £500+

Didn't the alarm bells ring?

Possible hijacked account.

Most phone scams are insurance jobs or stolen, he may well have the devices, so this solution ain't gonna help in that case.

He may have been on for 4 years, but check his selling history.

Looks like his accounts been hacked / hijacked.

madness......

just off the phone to paypal, told me to give the seller 7 days to send the item.


refused to cancel my payment

blimey, wont touch ebay again- i would have understood the risks if i had bought it from a 0 feedback seller but conned by a well established seller?

sums up ebay nowadays i guess

dcx_badass

Lol absolute dope, why would it be £250. OWNED.



Also the 16GB is selling for the same as the 32GB. lol

1. It was clearly not correct at that price
2. They are hardly well established
3. You should have dug a bit deeper first. Took me seconds to check their completed listings and feedback dates.

sounds like the account has been hacked as they have not sold anything for ages and now selling iphones this happened to another guy who was a shop

And as its a hacked account,... good look with Paypal as they cant refund the amount from the sellers account in an instant as he's been hacked and may of not directly withdrawn the funds.

Investigation time

Beggars belief that there really are people out there who think an eBay seller who has not sold or been involved in any transactions for over 8 months would sell a £600 phone for £250.

Seriously..I'm dumbfounded by this.

Good luck getting your money back.

Will need as much look as the OP can get.

I just received a 32gb iphone 4 for £350 so dont lose hope. Also if you receive it and it gets blocked a couple of months down the line, just take it to the police as you have proof of purchase.

As they say, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is

Theres plenty of real iPhones for sale on here at realistic prices

Anyone who thinks and spends £250 on an iPhone 4 is really asking or it at such a low pric especially when it would have alarm bells ringing at that price.

Hopefully you can get your money back op.

Item number now coming up as removed? Or has the auction just ended as normal.
