    Hi all. I am from Ukraine. I found sellers in Skype that sell iPhone 5 for 300 USD. There are even websites which are also sold at a low price. Please tell me is this true buy for 300 USD iPhone 5 unlocked? Thanks

    I'd say that 300 is too low for a iPhone 5 not purchased on a contract. If its too good to be true then it probably is.

    Seriously. Does it seem like a good idea to buy from someone over Skype? Spend a little more at an Apple store or reputable seller online. Common sense people. Please use it!

    Scam. Buy from eBay or something.

    You need to watch out for ebay as well. Plenty of scams there too.

    $649 for 16GB, $749 for 32GB, $849 for 64GB unlocked without contract.

    This is for United States.

    Did they also ask for your address, social security number, age, name, sex, checking account number, and phone number? My point is, SCAM

    full name, address, country, city, zip code, phone number.

    I think 100% SCAM. Asked to send money Western Union and take people's money. People fooled. I am looking for a wholesale supplier and I'm not the only one who is looking for. And it is very dangerous to fall for fraud
