I recently put my iPhone 3G 16GB up for auction on Ebay and it sold for $160. At the time of auction it was partly broken, occasionally needing a restart and would tell me to connect to itunes. Since then however, it has broken almost entirely, and I have stopped bothering with trying to use it and I switched to using my brother'r razr until I can get my paws on an iPhone 4. However when I told the buyer that it had broken almost entirely, she replied that it was a gift for her fiance in Africa. I have received payment through Paypal however, but something just feels fishy. Here's the entire conversation thread: Hello Am buying the item as a gift for my fiance. Just want to know if the item is in good condition before i will made the payment via paypal. Get back to me asap. Thanks Mandy -------------------------- Mandy, When I put the iPhone up for sale it was working ok (admittedly, not great) but since then has reached a state where it is nearly completely unusable. Therefore, I cannot sell it to you in good conscience without telling you first. However, I have seen identical iPhones that are broken that went for this price or higher. So if you would like to continue with this, please let me know or I will not ship it. Sorry for the inconvenience; I should've taken down the listing before it ended. -Chris ------------------------ Hello * Thanks for your response. I'll am buying the item as a gift for my fiance who is a missionary and is presently in Africa/Nigeria on a Missionary trip as a Surprise Birthday Gift and I want it shipped directly to him there. I am a Make-Up Artist by profession and i am presently away from home for work. I am at a location where i am participating in a shooting that is why you can't send it to my home and that is the reason why i want you to ship it directly to him there. I have contacted USPS (post office) about postage cost to Africa by EXPRESS DELIVERY and I was told it's about $60. I will be making the payment for the item now by Paypal and i want you to ship the item as soon as you receive notification of my payment from paypal. Thanks Mandy ---------------------- Hello ** Just want to inform you that i have made the payment for your ebay item. Here is the shipping address. *shipping address in Africa* *Get back to me. Thanks Mandy Now the question is, do I ship it?
