    Not only is it lame that you would think this is going to happen, but all 23 bidders are the biggest retards I've seen online as of late.

    Hmmm - a seller with 0 feedback selling a product that has yet to be manufactured - sounds legit to me :rolleyes:

    what I find even funnier is people that are bidding on the 3D paper models on ebay like this one. $11 ??!!!! Man I gotta find a decent printer and some heavy paper stock and start racking in the dough before the real thing comes out.

    :D Too funny!

    I will never attempt to get an iPhone from any shady bids or blinking "YOU WIN" ads.

    I have no sympathy. Buyer beware....ignoring the fact that the damn phone isn't even available yet, he ignored all of the other huge signs that it was a scam.

    Now that's even funnier. People are actually bidding on a bad cardboard cut-out.... knowingly. People are dumb.

    You know....there's always the possibility that some of the following may exist and may be floating around:
    *early demo models
    *demo models sent to exclusive parties for reporting and evaluation
    *initial manufacturing pipeline test run models
    *models used within apple to test the product
    *etc models

    The fact that those models could exist means
    the possibility that some of those models were 'misplaced' (lost), or 'unfortunately left unmonitored' (stolen).

    Which would then mean there is a possibility someone, who is not intentionally supposed to posses said models, may actually have in their possession one or more legitimate iPhones.

    Which would then mean such person(s) may have decided to sell them on eBay



    Yes I agree to what most here suggest [ SCAM ]. However, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if there is someone somewhere right now that has $1125 less cash in his pocket but 1 iPhone in the same pocket to fill it's place.
