I emailed about 20 people yesterday interested in buying their phones and I get always the same answer:

"Hi there

Someone just bought this from me, but I can tell you where I got it from.
I just bought 3 of these from ********.com and I resold them on cl for some extra money.

The trick is to watch for bidding to slow down and then jump in. That's what I do and I win most of the time.


Too much scam these days on that site.

I got that last year when trying to buy a 4S, same exact wording.

I finally just gave up. Usually, it was people asking a very low price. If it sound too low, it's probably a scam.
