    If it seems too good it probably is. I didn't click the links, but if you are asking here, it seems like it is a scam.

    Probably parallel import of Japanese and Hongkong version iPhones that makes them cheaper. Now, I can't speak for the sites, but the phones themselves are probably 100% legit. I live in China and this kind of parallel import is extremely common. Almost every electronics I've bought have been sent off from Shenzhen because it's on the other side of the border to HK.

    I highly doubt a new 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus can be had for $480.

    Sites like this are for desperate and stupid. Do not become one of them.

    "Beside Hilton Hotel"? Yeah...sounds legit to me.... :rolleyes:

    Anyone used ScamAdvisor.com for such things? They give this site a questionable rating and sites like MR a high rating on a variety of criteria.

    You mean those two guys in the panel van outside BestBuy weren't really trying to give me a really good deal on those high end stereo speakers they just won in a raffle at work? :)

    (yeah it was a few years ago... today it's be an iPad or something)
