    okay so i currently have an 8gb iphone unlocked to rogers
    selling it with a blue tooth headset and a new screen protector on it, got someone who i am going to meet friday night for $500 CDN

    then found a lady in the states who is going to send me a 16gb BRAND NEW still in plastic seal in box for $300 USD including shipping and handling. umm any reason to be concerned bout this being a refurb or no?

    but i think thats a killer deal. so ill unlock it, but some cheap accessories, screen protector etc, once the 3g phone is released ill sell this one and get the new one if i really need to

    Just be careful, you don't want to get scammed. Too many FAKE money orders and remember money is transferred and in your hands as cash, before you send your iPhone in the mail with a tracking number! BE CAREFUL. :eek:

    Do not allow your iPhone to be sent overseas, without you making PHONE contact with the buyer, and do not send your iPhone via FEDEX with a tracking number until that money order clears the bank, 'cause there are too many FAKE money orders coming from the UK (What I'm saying is this, I would never take a money order for an iPhone or a computer for that matter). BE CAREFUL. :eek::eek::eek:

    Omg!!!! You should certainly sell your iPhone for $500+, but DO NOT buy the one from the lady. It is certainly a scam, and the new iPhone will be out in less than 2 weeks. Why would you want to buy an older model?

    My mantra is to never transact business via moneygram or western union. I trust my credit card and paypal.

    Listen to the advice, and dont get scammed.

    Besides, who in their right mind would ever sell a 16gb for only $300? Even the refurbished 16gb ones cost $349. If you ask me, this is similar to those guys who post spam on macrumors claiming their company sells iphones for 150, and PS3's for $250...
