Thread: Would you buy this?
05-27-2010, 12:20 AM #1Would you buy this?
OK, so I was looking around for an iPod Nano 5th Generation, and found this one on eBay for just $51.99 (16GB) and free shipping!
? Apple? iPod nano 16 GB 5th Generation NEWEST MODEL - eBay (item 170491651203 end time Jun-25-10 20:49:52 PDT)
What do you think people? Is it a scam or a real deal?
From the description it seems to be the real deal, however as soon as I was gonna click on "Buy It Now" I read
Item location: default, default, Hong Kong
Ships to: Worldwide
History: 14 sold
What do you guys think pls

hmmm i see what you mean... no feedback...
ok, you could buy one and if it never arrives just open a claim against him, this will freeze his account until he refunds you.
maybe message him and ask how come he is selling the iPods so cheaply.
another thing... he sold 78 over the period of 2 days. he is shipping from Hong Kong and therfore delivery will take long and people have not received theirs so they cant leave feedback.
lots of the people buying have really low feedback or none. to be on the safe side, wait 1 week and see if any feedback has been made.

I wouldn't do it. No feedback and free shipping from HK? Sounds too good to be true. If you compare it to other auctions, it's way to cheap.
Sounds to me like the perfect setup for a scam. Seller ships from HK so people expect it to take a few weeks. He sells enough to take the money before anyone even starts to question it.

And after a few weeks then it falls out of the file a report against them for money back too.

If you look at other auctions, almost all of them are selling for double that. This guy has sold $9774.12 worth of them. I find it hard to believe he has that many lying around at that price. In the time it took me to write this post, he sold six more.

My friend does business with wholesale iDevices. She showed me a pic of an iPod nano (back then it was the 4th gen) and I was like wow, those are cheap!
Then she told me they are high-quality replicas sold for cheap, wholesale or individual. I bet that's what it was. They are extremely high-quality replicas made in China (of course, lol). That's why it was so cheap. And I doubt it holds 16 gigs, they just advertise it that way :P
EDIT* she doesn't sell fakes lol she was just showing me she almost got ripped off. Don't want people going around thinking she's a scam artist.

I wouldnt go for it because shipping HK to you probably take a week or two weeks. By the time you didnt recieve anything or heard from him and you report him, that will be little too late. Plus, the dude have 0 feedback. I wouldnt trust him. You cant trust him.
