3rd Time Lucky

Posted in Uncategorized by petercombe on September 12, 2008

This is the 3rd time in a month that i’ve listed Joe’s first generation iPhone on Ebay. The first listing was won by a con artist in Nigeria. I’d gone to the post office late in the day – had the iPhone packaged and paid for postage and gotten a tracking number to send to the buyer. It wasn’t until i got home to submit the tracking number that i felt suspicious of a couple of emails apparently sent from Ebay and Paypal. My suspicions proved correct – i went to the post office first thing the next morning and pulled the item from being shipped and got my $70 in postage back. Thank god I’d visited the post office late the previous day and thereby missing the daily pick-up.  

The next listing incurred an ebay buyer violation. The buyer clicked the ‘buy now’ option and then reneged.

We are at it again. Click Gently used 16gb iPhone to check out the live auction.
