N9 and N950 scams on eBay (was: [Fake or Real?] Nokia N9 here..)
 
Since they started to give out N950 developers devices I thought I would see them appear on ebay soon enough and been doing searches for a while now and come up with nothing.

But just this morning I searched again and I found this link:


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MESOX:IT


The guy's got the N9 up there but also has an N950 in his other items, link is here:



http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...STRK:MESELX:IT



Is this real? I am tempted (for the N950 of course). It does make sense that some N950s would end up on ebay but this soon? i'm not sure. He has sold some of them already so the buyers either found something trustworthy about this seller or are very stupid. I don't know

What do you guys think? Should I order one, I'm really starting to miss my N900.. but I don't want to be scammed, is it worth the risk?

I think you won't ever see your money again.






I don't have much else to say actually.

The N950 is not given to developers, its loaned to them.
If anyone sells one, I'm pretty sure Nokia (and their lawyers) would have something to say about it:

Undoubtedly because it puts the date at which you'd know to complain past paypal's "you're screwed" date.

I guess I was being way too optimistic. Ah well will wait for the N9 then!

Previous items sold do not include any phones, just video game stuff. He has however purchased a couple housings for an n900 one gold and one white.

Also
"This is a worldwide offer and I will guarantee free delivery of this phone anywhere in the world by the 19th of September or your money back"

By then its bye bye cash. Paypal won't touch it with a brick after soo long and you should not either!
