Hello, I have read the article on the first page, It is very informative.
But I'm still in doubt about this supplier who has contacted me.
I'm from India and he is in Malaysia. He is offering to sell me iPhone5 16gb at $470.
Its a very tempting price, he is also offering a 50% advance and 50% after receipt of the
5 pieces I have showed interest on.
When I asked to send me pictures he has done so very promptly. He is also on telephone contact with me from Malaysia.
The thing is, he is requesting Bank transfer on someone else's personal name.
So, My question is could he be legit? or is he trying to scam me?
Has anyone seen the apple website in US? They have much cheaper prices than in other websites and even in distributors in UK!! Do you know how to import phones with such prices or find distributor in USA that sends the phones overseas. I order through my family member in USA a few of the phones but they blocked him for buying more (on his name and for some period). The fact is they have Iphone 5 16GB for $200 (about £140) where you can sell it easily on ebay for £350. Can some one explain me that or help me with getting in touch with US distributors with such prices? I am new young entrepreneur and just discover word of business :)
What you FAILED to mention is the iphone 5 priced @ $200 in the US is the price when taken with a airtime contract ie a pay monthly phone such as the likes you get here in the UK. This price is NOT a sim free unsubsidized handset. I would suggest going back to page 1 of this thread & taking a long read through
