    Hi!

    I bought an iPod Shuffle 2nd Generation on Ebay. What attracted me to this item was the fact it was Sealed, and it was Limited Edition Gold (Avon Special). Once I received the item I had noticed the iPod is actually upside down in the box. Is this a fault done by Apple/Avon or have I been scammed?

    Just great, I should have known better. I guess I have to wear the cost on this one then! :/

    The bubbles and crinkles on the sticker on top say that it's been opened before. Sorry mate.

    The fact that it is in upside down should be the real give away.

    Haha sorry but you already know the answer. Apple is not shipping upside down items.

    Why not send it back?

    Moreover, if you paid by PayPal, just contact them and they will refund you straight away.

    I paid $80AUD for actual item, and a further $20AUD for shipping. Seller has agreed for me to send it back to him, but I don't want him to sell it to someone else on the precinct that it's in Brand New Condition. I have yet to come to a conclusion on keeping it, and learn from my mistakes or send it back!

    Well if you decide to send it back, make sure you get money back first... The seller already tried to scam you once, I guarantee they'll try again if handed the chance.
