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

Fund terrorism for a gift card...who wouldn't wanna get in on that?

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
