    Default dont know if i should buy from seller
    hey yall i dont know if i should buy from this seller off craigslist. ive talked to him plenty of times and he has sent me multiple pics at my request and the way i wanted him to show them. the only problem is he is from romania and is requiring western union which is rule #1 not to do on craigslist so u dont get scammed. he has sent me 4 pics and a pic with him holding the iphoen which i asked to prove it was legit. just wanted to hear on what yall think. and the deal was my ipod touch 16gb +120 bucks for his 16gb 3g iphone. is that even a good deal? what u think?

    Come on, someone from Romania on Craigslist???????? So what he sent pics holding the phone, doesnt mean he's gonna send you the phone.

    I see 3 thing wrong with this trade
    1. he's from Romania
    2. requiring western union
    3. ipod touch 16gb +120 bucks for his 16gb 3g iphone < not the best deal
    I would not do it

    Yeah, and honestly......sure it would be a great trade for you (like Broom said)...

    Cause there is no way I would ever trade a 3g 16gigger for that touch and $120. the 3g is worth way more.

    Default Sounds like a scam
    Listen to your instincts. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam. Western Union should sound a loud alarm for you.
