    First actual topic post here - but I have been floating around since before I got my iMac.
    Anyways, I was looking on ebay for a cheap ipod shuffle for the gym, and I cam across this result:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Brand-new-ipo...39:1|66:2|65:12|240:1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

    It looks a bit suspicious to me - not only from the price but also from what is posted at the end of the listing:
    "On 28-Sep-08 at 16:11:35 BST, seller added the following information:
    WE ALSO NEED YOU TO KNOW THIS DOES NOT GO WITH ITUNES ONLY WITH WINDOWN MEDIA PLAYER THE REASON FOR THIS IS WE CAN GET YOU THE SONG FOR FREE.IF ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE RING 07958425525 OR EMAIL US THROUGH EBAY PLEASE DONT RING TILL AFTER 5PM THANKS "
    [/SIZE]


    What do you reckon? Am I right and its a bit dodgy, therefore save my cash - or is this the best bargain ever?

    Definitely stay away. Something about that listing just screams "GIVE US YOR MONEY WE MAY OR MAY NOT GIBE YOU A IPOD SHUFFLE IT WILL PROBABLY NOT BE APPLEBRANDED". :eek:

    Wow. Your fast.
    Im going to go with my gut instinct and also with what you said above and run far away from this listing.
    Thanks for the help.
