    wow that is ballsy. If it were me I would've sold them one at a time and not advertised that I had 30 iPhones the day after rioting.

    I'm sure they have all the serial numbers on deck. Apple has $73,000,000,000 in cash. They probably don't give a flying **** hahhahha

    I agree. They got better things to worry about and I'm sure insurance will take care of their losses.

    Insurance will take care of it, but keep in mind that more claims will end up meaning higher premiums.

    Steve could probably care less about 40 measly iPhones with all the money the company is making and battling illness.

    I wasn't referring to Apple, but to the smaller businesses and individuals. Insurance companies tend to pass the costs onto everyone.

    Except the police is too busy dealing with rioters to go after some guy selling 15 grand worth of iPhones. And, like you said; assuming this guy is even real....

    Well they were stolen from o2 so im thinking they'll have all the IMEI numbers.So if having those they'll know from they're system what stock was sold and what wasn't, so they can then put a block on what wasnt sold.

    Suggest just getting on with your lives, or join the police/fraud squad...

    Why "fraud"? Because they won't use brute force? Or because they won't shoot them dead?

    How about instead of discussing it we all report it to Craiglist? ;)

    There should be a 'flag' button in the top right hand corner of your screens. Click 'prohibited' and your done! :)

    Whatever floats your boat. How does somebody selling stolen iPhones have any impact on peoples lives here? People expressing their anger and "reporting them" need to find alternative sources of entertainment.
