    Hi everyone, btw this is my first post :D

    Well, I was browsing used iMacs on amazon, and I found a great deal, but it had a description which sounds fishy:

    Refurbished

    Read all the message! This is a great offer ,was listed as refurbished but is never used,new, with original box and 2 years warranty.The product was used only for advertising purposes in my store.Before placing a order let me know here: (an e-mail adress) «

    Is this a scam?

    Link to where I found it:

    Yes - always a scam when they want you to email them outside of Amazon.

    To buy from Amazon even through another seller you shouldn't have to email someone so I wouldn't want to buy from that seller. If you have to ask if something is a scam it's probably best not to risk it.

    Yep, I think you guys were right since it was just removed. It was $590 but it still says Refurbished from $590 even though the cheapest refurbed one is about $900

    Right here should have told you the seller was stretching the truth. Out, sitting on a counter displaying advertising is not New, in box never used.And Refurbished is a process, not just a sales description. If it was "new" as claimed it wouldn't need refurbished.

    Too many holes
