btw isn't £50 delivery expensive!!!! :O
Scam, or have you ordered an iphone?
did you order the phone? did you already pay 250 for it?

none of this is clear for starters

looks like a simple escrow scam to me.
Why would you even take a second look at it?!
Sorry for not making it clear, I have actually ordered the phone of this lady, but because we live far apart she has sent it to me via UK Cargo and said I would receive an email off them and I did and this was the email ...
Looks really fake to me. I wouldn't trust.
1) The contents listing. If they handle transactions they wouldn't call it "full accessories", they'd be itemised.
2) A Gmail address? Any reputable company would at least have a domain email account
2a) Typing their name in Google doesn't return anything matching this service, did find this though:…jpg
3) Have you ever seen the "Customer Policy and User Agreement" it mentions?
4) What kind of iPhone is it? Why on earth is it "evaluated" at £250 by them after inspection?
5) £50 delivery? Is he having a laugh?

Just noticed that 2a image matches what "amzmalhotra" posted.
Loot = Scammers
Might be an idea to go back to seller with your concerns mate, sounds weird to me.
100% scam

walk away
No mention of them on google apart from someone else who has been scammed
Thanks everyone, not what I wanted to hear but the truth hurts lol ...

I only found this ...…ODA
gmail address, talk about cheap

then again, i know a company that uses an email address, their excuse? they dont get any email enquiries from customers anyway ( i wonder why!)
I really don't know what to do :-/

any suggestions? , if she is being genuine about the phone (she sent pics of it with her name, my name and todays date)

How could she get this parcel back from them and send it in a different way ?

it screams scam, as a few have already mentioned , I'd walk away.

Have you paid for the iphone?
she is scamming you, there is no Iphone...

buy it from a reputable site like ebay...
I haven't paid, but the woman seems to think she has paid the £50 for this UK Cargo to send me the phone although its not on its way until I pay this Mohammed guy £250

I haven't paid, but the woman seems to think she has paid the £50 for … I haven't paid, but the woman seems to think she has paid the £50 for this UK Cargo to send me the phone although its not on its way until I pay this Mohammed guy £250

That's the scam :w00t:
No - walk away, it is a well known scam.
Good thing is you haven't parted with any cash yet so you haven't lost out.
Also, even in the unlikely case that you do get the phone, you cannot be sure that in 1 or 2 months time they won't claim it has been stolen, get it blocked and then make a claim with their insurers.
