    This is the site

    http://www.dhgate.com/

    Seems a bit professional but also dubious !

    Ipod's seem to be cheap here....

    Thanks

    These are all knockoffs from what I can see. Click on some of the links then scroll down to see the pictures and you'll totally see the fakeness.

    I see some legit iPods here, but don't see any real deals considering you have to buy in lots of 10-20. I don't need 20 last-gen shuffles.

    I just found this site too. My daughter wants to buy 10 iPods and sell them. She already has 4 friends who will buy.

    I would appreciate some advice about this particular ad. I am new to Apple products and have never owned an iPod. I don't want her to get taken.

    The user guide picture at the bottom says it is a PMP. I guess it is a fake.

    Why risk it with a site that advertises everything under the sun. they're probably not even an authorized Apple reseller. At best you might get some fake iPods, which might work and might get you in difficulties. At worst your credit details could be stolen and you know where that leads.

    No ipod has expandable memory. All Apple products have a white charging cord. Def Fake

    Thank you everyone. I honestly had no idea what I was looking at. I told my daughter that it appeared too good to be true.

    Half of the items expressly state they are not Apple products, and then go on to ask if you want the product with or without an apple logo on the rear. This outfit makes knock offs for resale (can you say E-Bay, suckers? I knew you could...)

    PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR OR YOUR CHILD'S MONEY!!!

    IF IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE........... IT IS.

    It uses the term "iPod Touch", yet the device shown is obviously not an iPod Touch but a cheap knockoff. Don't waste your money.

    I won't. I really had no idea what I was looking at. I appreciate everyone helping me to keep from making a huge mistake. My daughter has learned a lesson in this too.:)

    Ha. A newbie with just one post is praising a obvious scam store; this absolutely reeks of a shill working for the scammer.
