    Hi there,

    I've found a number of these on eBay:

    iTunes Account 1 and iTunes Account 2.

    Does anyone have any experience of these and whether they are ok to buy? I emailed one of the sellers who advised that he has been selling this accounts for 18 months now without any problems and no one has ever reported to him of any problems. He claims to be a reseller and has a pretty good eBay rating as well.

    I read some of the info on the second link you posted... It said something about: "the account will be limited to a usage of 7 days from the time I give you the information, so make sure you use everything, as the account will be blocked eventually!"

    Sounds bogus or like a scam to me... stay away. Really, do you think someone would really sell $500 worth of items for about 50 bucks?

    Kinda reminds me of 2 saying my dad always said, and still does... "Nothing is ever free, there is always a catch" "you get what you pay for"

    I would stay away from it, unless money is no biggie for you. And if thats the case I could use an extra $50.

    Sounds like way more work than it needs to be. Just set up a UK account yourself without a credit card and buy gift card codes on eBay.

    these are fraud accounts, heres how it works..

    someone in china loads an account with $100-$1000 itunes credit using fraudulent credit cards. it takes an average of 4-7 days for itunes to be notified about the fraud charge before the acct is pulled. this is great if you want to download music or movies but when it comes to apps for the iDevice you will not receive the free updates bc the acct will be suspended.

    this is basically the same people who were selling $200 codes for $70 on ebay a year ago. just this time they make the acct for you.

    steer clear unless u want movies/music and plan to strip the DRM
