Did you sell your phone in advance before 7/7+ release?

Selling SE once I receive my IPhone 7 this Friday through Craigslist. Ebay is to risky anymore with fraud.
I've had an iPhone since the 5s and it's only gotten more and more difficult. People buying and not wanting it after winning the auction. People trying to get me to mail the phone out of country even though I shipped domestically only.

What's worse than that, is the buyer can file a claim with Up to six months, meaning they can state the iPhone is locked or the iPad isn't working or the MacBook was never in the box. They get their money back and Pay Pal locks your account with your funds attached. eBay is fine to sell smaller items without severe net loss, but high end premium electronics like Apple, forget it. To risky and way to many devious, sketchy dirty scum bags trying to fraud you, even when you least expect it.
