    Sir,

    For payment i propose you a deal , a very safe deal for you .... In this deal, i'm the one who need to trust you, not you in me ....
    This is a deal in the same way like COD with a little difference like COD .
    l will ship via UPS but you can choose other mail carrier .lt
    usually takes 48 hours till the package arrives to your door. l will
    cover the shipping and insurance costs.I send all my packages
    having written on them "display unit, no comercial value" or as a gift
    so you
    don't have to pay any additional taxes. (VAT included)
    l'm a serious seller with more than 2 years of experience in
    this field.
    l'm a fair trader with a good feedback on ebay which is the
    proof that l have closed a lot of sucessful deals.
    During this period l learned that the best deals are closed when the
    risk involved is minimum.
    You will arrange payment through western union( www.westernunion.com ).
    I have something safe for you because I want you to be sure that
    you will receive the product and I hope we will colaborate in future
    too
    because I want to develop this bussines as soon as possible.
    Look what I can do for you:
    -you will make the transfer to my location but not to my name(you will
    use your best friends name for example as receiver's name)so you can be
    sure that i will not pick up the money untill you get the product.So
    you make a deposit at western union and you will
    give me the transfer's details(SENDER NAME,RECEIVER NAME,MTCN) so i can
    check that the deposit was made .
    After i verify I will send you the product imediately and email you the
    tracking number from UPS.
    -only after you will receive the product and check it, if it is ok you will
    have to change the reciver`s name of the transfer to my name so i can collect my
    money.So untill you
    will have the product in your hands the money will be deposited on
    your best friend's name at western union agent.
    I think it is better to not inform western union that you will change
    the receivers name in a few days because it is possible
    they to ask you to pay the fees twice also when you go to an western
    union office to make the transfer,please don't tell there the reason for you
    send the money because here in this country I must pay somes aditional taxes
    when I recive the founds(you know busines with electronic...),Please say
    you send the money to your friends or to your partener.
    My old buyers of course make the transfer at western union direct to my
    name which is easier and i will be happy if you can trust in me but
    because it is our
    first deal i proposed you this very safe and efficient method so you can
    only deposit the money first and after you get the product to allowed
    me to cash it.
    Western Union company have offices in every bank, postal
    office, big store or airport from your town.
    Probably this payment method it is not very familiar to you but l have used it for many
    times and each of my customers being satisfied and l have to admit that
    it is most efficient process to go through.
    In case you'll change your mind after receiving the
    package and want to cancel the order you'll ship it back and retreive
    the money from western union. Also in case the delivery does not arrive
    on time please email me and I'll contact the mail carrier.
    is it ok?in this way you will be sure that i won`t have the money until you will
    recive the phones and change the reciver`s name.
    Look here my full info's to make the payment :
    first name : Eugene
    last name : Stone
    adress: Via Di Salone #106
    city : ROME
    zip code : 00131
    country: ITALY
    Don't forget to change the Receiver's Name when you will send the money
    and after you will receive the package, you will change the Receiver Name
    in my name : Eugene Stone .
    Please give me a reply if you accept the deal in this way .
    Thank you and let me know

    Hello Sir ,

    I have recently opened a phones store but now I am having some problems with the rent and I am forced to close it temporarily. So I have to liquidate everything. Unfortunatelly for me and fortunately for the buyers the prices are much lower than originally .
    The price for it is 244 EUR with shipping and delivery included in the price.
    The phone is brand new and unlocked , in original box , never opened or used with all accesories : charger, car charger, bluetooth, headset, Usb cable, handsfree , manual , Software ... and is covered by 2 international years manufactured warranty. The phone can be used in all networks without any problems ...all you need to do when you will receieve it is to insert your Sim Card and after that the phone will work without any problems. You have 7 days returned policy . In this time you can check it if you are satisfacted or not.
    Let me know if you have more questions ?
    Let me know if we will make a deal ?
    I will wait your reply..
    Thank you

          Your best bet is to simply turn them into Ebay...forward the emails and everything. Because if you bid...and don't pay *regardless* if it's a scam or not Ebay will close your account. :\

          Trust me on that one, I got screwed over when I first started using Ebay.
          Considerably.....

                        oh boy, good idea ChiTown

                        Im going to say for the deal to work out, after my boss talked to to CEO that he would like to buy 100 of them for 22,000 euro. than im going to say if you accept the deal i will be flying over to pay you/pick up the product. i will tell him i will be riding a harley davidson motorcycle with US plates on it. I think maybe he will catch on, that i knew it was a scam to begin with.


                        if he doesnt, i will give him some BS flight number and say to meet me somewhere in rome. so that i can pay him in cash
                        i love screwing scammers.............

                            Actually you should skip the Harley part this time and make him think you are flying in to Rome. Give the fake flight number, etc... and see what he says. Save the Harley part for a little later...that's a good one.

                            Just a suggestion. Keep us posted.
