    Thought I'd check the private listings websites in the UK and eBay to see if there were any scalpers selling the iPhone X and not surprised to find a seller on eBay selling the 256GB iPhone X for sale for £1,899.99 and he's already sold one!

    Just wondering how he's so sure he can get hold of the iPhone X on release in November and whether anyone else has found other crazy sellers elsewhere?

    Dummies everywhere! Wait and buy yourself, surely?

    Breach of Ebay rules, you can only list presale items if you can supply them in a maximum of 30 days from purchase.

    He would've had to pay £190.17 in Final Value fee and £64.77 in PayPal fees, so he made a profit of £495.33 per iPhone X 256GB unit. Subtract £15 for next-day signed delivery and it becomes £485.33 in profit per unit.

    This is what I don't understand...

    If you check the SOLD listings on Ebay, some sold for like £1350, so surely after costs they made nothing or a negative?? Explain that to me?!
