why did this ipad sell so cheap?


    Item number: 260759050568

    i bidded but didnt win as it seemed a bit too cheap to be legit?



    have you even looked at the seller?

    Probably low feedback although that was for a high value item. Nothing there that rings alarm bells.

    Sometimes things just go for under and over market value, i recently got someone to buy me a San Francisco off eBay, three were lost at over £100 and then one was won at £83 all in a couple of days. The £83 phone arrived promptly and is perfectly fine.

    Must be something in the water. I've had a good week as an eBay buyer, bought about 6 items all of which I put in low bids that I didn't think would win but in fact did! Unfortunately I am also about to sell some stuff and in the current climate I'll think I'll have to wait a week or so to see if the market recover.

    I personally wouldn't pay that kind of money to someone with 1 feedback without the knowledge that I could pick up, test and pay for it at the sellers home.

    It looks quite dodgy to me then again i dont trust anyone with less than 100 seller ratings and a proper photo of the item seeing as they put up a stock photo and it states in the spec that their one is white

    Paypal won't release the funds to them until they get positive feedback.
