I am in the process of selling my iPhone online, and I'm looking into possible buyer scams (so I don't get scammed when the sale completes in a few days). Can anybody tell me any way that I can reduce the risk of being scammed by the buyer? I know one common buyer scam is to have a damaged iPhone that's the same model and colour as the one you're selling (maybe the green is shattered), and then when they receive yours, they say it's damaged and ask for a refund, shipping the old damaged phone back to you. I think I could protect myself here by simply checking the IMEI number as that's printed on the rear of the phone. Am I being paranoid in thinking they could use my IMEI number and transfer it to another iPhone, and then return my iPhone, with the other phone's IMEI (say a stolen iPhone)? Are there any scams that I should know about, or ways to help protect me, as the seller?
