whenever you post an iphone 4 for sale on craigslist or a similar site, you always have scammers trying somehow to get the serial number and IMEI of the phone.

there are also people selling iphones in the small "refusbished" box without accessories. i hard from someone that the people asking for the serial and imei # would contact apple and obtain the refurbished boxes iphones somehow (and pay a fee to apple via credit card)

anyone know whats going on here and what these ppl are doing? (and why apple would let this happen)
