(And in case you noticed my avatar and say he's a "have" - no I'm not- it's just a picture) And again, unfortunately, there are people who cannot afford luxuries like iPads etc so there will always be that market. What gets me is the scammers allowed to infiltrate Cydia - I go to check out a theme & I'm bombarded with "you're the lucky winner. Claim your prize now. The 100000 person wins an iPad 3. Then you read the fine print to see that by entering you are actually subscribing. How many people have been scammed by this. Yet I don't see topics of this posted in this forum?? It's all robbery.
    Ah Quibids, I remember them way too well. Just a bunch of **** they advertise. Stupidity at it's worst. See all that "win a $1000 Walmart gift card." crap. These companies and private sellers abuse the internet, it amuses me how the FBI doesn't do anything about these cyber scams.

    Thieves on Craig's List pedaling their stolen wares and they have the nerve to not just steal the device they have but to steal from a potential buyer if they think they can get away with it. Well the jig is up dirtbags thanks to the good senior senator from NY. US carriers will soon be blacklisting IMEIs so even if the transaction was done safely in front of a police station you could get stuck with a dead, blacklisted iDevice, SUCKERS!!

    PS Take the advice from the post in terms of safer alternatives and stop encouraging these dirtbags by buying what is most likely stolen goods. It could save your life. Sayin...

    On a related note, being from Youngstown, Ohio, we see stuff like this all the time. Case in point, my best friend bought an iphone 4s when they first came out last year, but ended up needing the money more, so he decided to sell his ip4s and just use his ip4. He advertised it for sale on craigslist for like $700 or something around there. Anywho, some guy was texting him and he wanted to meet up at a taco bell parking lot on an extremely bad side of town (South Side Youngstown). I mean, this area is so bad that taco bell has bullet proof glass and bullet proof drive thru windows. They meet up and when this guy is looking at Brad's phone, he just takes off running. Brad grabs him by the shoulder to try and stop him, and the guy ends up turning back with a pistol in his hand and shoots at brad. Get this, the bullet grazes Brad's collar. He gets so freaked out and runs! He's never told anyone this story but me and his mom. And he never heard from the thief again, who almost took his life for a damn iphone.

    Just sayin!
    yeah that's awsome! So when they stupidly try and rob you the shots you take at the robber will most likely kill those in the crowded place. Yeah..... great idea!

    He was "so freaked out" he didn't even call the police? Your friend is a retard, his mother is a retard and because you knew about it and didn't encourage him to call the police, you're a retard. Plus, why would he "hear" from the robber again? Yeah.... read part one of this response again, focusing on the part that starts with "you're a".

    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true.

    I always have my taser with me just in case Hopefully I'll never have to use it. I usually meet in a Wal-Mart parking lot at the front entrance...camera's everywhere and lots of ppl.

    Maybe 'you' would hit random people but I wouldn't miss my target!!! I'm assuming you don't own a weapon nor have any idea about gun safety...

    Thanx for coming to bash our comments...you're soooo cool now! Hey everybody, look how awesome RKSWAT is for posting his hater comments (LOL)!

    Craigslist Ad:
    "Anyone wanna buy an iPad. Two-fitty. Meet me in the back alleyway at 3am. Trust son this is legit!"

    Tommy: Hey mom! I'm gonna sleep over my friend Timmy's house tonight. We're gonna play that new halo game.
    Mom: Ok son. Be safe.
    Tommy: C'mon mom i'm 28! Stop treating me like a child!
    Mom: Ok son. Be safe.
    Tommy: MOM!

    Headines the following day:
    Two grown children were robbed at gunpoint in the back alleyway while responding to a false craigslist scam.

    I love reading news about idiots being victims.

    Well where I live they don't allow tasers. A bottle of sulfuric acid works just as good. It also helps authorities identify the assailant should he/she get away.

    Anyone that says "Trust me this is legit" is not someone to be trusted in my opinion lol.

    Just seen a story today of a person buying a phone via craigslist and the buyer even brought someone. But the "seller" still stole his wallet and shot him point blank.
