    iPhone 3GS/16GB £310.00 Deal or No Deal ?

    Just spotted these on Ebay 250552109031 Seller had 10 sold 2. Limited feedback, description says New (Phone is fresh in its box) however Paypal should guarantee regards any problems. Ive mailed him to ask... Which network - are the boxes sealed in cellophane - if not, have they been used in any way.
    Any thoughts much appreciated, cheers.

    My thoughts too... very undecided whether to go ahead or not, and tbh I don't have much faith in paypal's claims when it comes to dodgy dealings

    doesnt matter now you are always covered for the full amount if you pay with paypal
    gotta be worth a punt fund it with a credit card for extra security
    btw you are covered by your credit card company for the whole amount even if you only part fund it with the card even 1p :thumbsup:

    So are you saying Paypal will only refund money claimed back from the seller, not from their own a/c

    Don't go for it, unless you want to run the risk of your funds being tied up/lost.

    These sort of trades can often have a little twist leaving you without any cover whatsoever.

    Think of the sellers net amount after all fees. No brainer - Avoid.

    Sometimes the hassle is not worth it

    they will probably be chinese fakes or never exist


    yep,you would have to claim on your credit card.....think about it.....nobody sells iphones cheap,it doesn't happen...do you really want all the hassle and possible loss of a lot of money to save £100???

    this is a common scam

    why?? if you fund with a credit card you get your money back end of
    may have to wait a few months but you get it back

    although i agree it's most likely a scam you never know
    i bought a mac mini of ebay a while back brand new sealed for a stupid low price from a new user with low feedback so i funded with a cc and guess what the mini showed up exactly as advertised you have to be in it to win it as they say

    Thanks all for the quick and smart replies :thumbsup: will be interesting to hear sellers reply and see how many he actually sells.

    nah ive got a 16gb 3g and getting a 3gs from applestore for christmas
    i was just saying 98% of the time they are scams 1% nicked the other are genuine nutters
    a guy i used to know got bulk upgrades for company mobiles he chooses the most desirable phone at the time and just flogs em on ebay so you never know

    LOL his one and only transaction a Wacker Plate all seems above board

    Email the person tell him you live in Peterbough and ask him if it is ok to pickup the phone and pay cash if he says no then i would feel its a con.

    possibly but i have loads of ebay feedback and feedback here and have never scammed anyone and i personally dont do pickups if i can help it
    simply because i dont want strangers coming round my home and it's a pain when people say they are coming and never show

    10 poor mugs! Chap has been doing it using several aliases on ebay. Ebay won't do a thing as they'll say they can't monitor everything that gets posted - however, they can charge for everything on there!
