    My better judgment says no but i just need confirmation because its so tempting.

    Anyone ever heard of storesinc@gmail.com or ever do business with them? are they legitimately. They are selling 16gb iphone for $250 claiming it is new a unlocked and wants to use western union which is the hugest red flag of all. he says they are located in the UK.
    Are the iphone 3g's even unlockable yet?
    any advice?

    They are selling iPhones at below cost using Western Union via a basically anonymous email address. I'd say not a chance.

    I'd go with this:
    If it is too good to be true then it is false. ;) As far as calling someone with a gmail address a "dealer", I would head for the hills.

    The fact that they deal and sell primarily by an email address and want the money by one main source leads me to think that this is most certainly a scam. Where exactly did you find this?

    Listen, I can do even better for you - send me the $250 by Western Union to scammies@gmail.com and I will send you $500 by return from my account in Nigeria. That way you will be able to buy two iPhones from these people.

    Either that or set fire to your money.. the result will be the same.
