Fancy phones and eBay scams

So in the aftermath of my Chicago trip I was in need of a new phone, and started trawling eBay for something. I quickly found the super fancy Nokia N95, a device that does pretty much everything, and is also a phone…

Next I found that some persons had a number of these phones, and were seemingly eager to move them at “fell of the back of a truck” prices. Thinking I could get a few, and sell them off I did the ol’ google on the supplied email address, and found that the phones probably didn’t fall off a truck, and probably don’t even exist. As outlined here and here, these are scams where people steal reputable eBayer’s accounts and then use them to steal your money.

Instead of a super flash phone, I settled for a repeat of my stealthy-yet-high-tech Nokia 6230i, hopefully I didn’t get scammed…
