    I went to my mall and there were 5 or 6 dudes with huge bags full of iphones sitting in front of the apple store with gaurds around them.

    I went up to one and asked what he's doing.he said I'll give u 100 bucks if u take these 2 prepaid gift cards and wait in line and buy me 2 phones.

    I guess he buys them and sells them over in Europe or Russia.

    When I asked how many he has so far he told me over 2500 iphones.

    Insane but he said he makes 1500-1800 each selling them in the middle east and Russia

    I don't know you would get that from.my family just got back from Greece and they told me to send them an unlocked iPhone.I guess Greece has a 27% tax rate and the 6plus is like 1300 euros there.

    I can see a huge market for it lol I wish I took a picture the kid had like 200 phones in front of him lol

    He had 2 cops sitting next to him lol when I asked him what if a kid runs off with the prepaid gift card used to buy the phone he said he makes a call and terminates the card.

    Kid has it locked down and is also buying the phones in a state with no sales tax
