    Got a skype message today from a person in China that "dropships" Samsung Note 3's and S4's. He is charging 475 for the note and 425 for the S4. He has sent me another person who used him and he has good reviews. He also has agreed to use Escrow which is very safe. Are my customers going to receive bricks in a box? Or does this sound legit? Sorry if a dumb question but I am new to this. The ebay he says is his customers http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISA...world=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2050430.m2531.l4585

    If you do not research well about the person and you get scammed then thats your problem. Its always good to do your homework well. I have nothing to suggest you at the moment but make a wise decision dude

    Very well may get some really high quality knock off's... best bet is to order one for yourself, even though they may be such good replicas nobody would ever know.

    Yes I have seen many phones like these coming from china. They look the same, they probably even work the same but they won't be samsung. I have just PM'ed you a link.

    OK just a quick heads up, if they're coming in from china the will 100% be replicas. Similar to the iphone5's going for like 100USD etc. they look the same have different grades ranging from A-AAA, you wil notice a higher price on the better replicas but obviously they all run on android.

    In any case if your drop-shipping, using china as a source watch you ebay/amazon account as youre essentially putting youre hard earned positive feedback in the hands of someone you dont know, who may delay shipments, send your customers rubbish products and even send over items that may get held up/seized in customs, in any case you will take the wrap as the seller as your supplier doesnt care considering they are getting paid whatever happens to the shipment and your account.

    Having been based in China for several years and now moved operations over to UK would be happy to advise you if you have any additional questions.

    Well, quite strange, he sold 16 of them and only 2 feedback and 1 even negative ....
    A 14 year old account and now only 90%positive feedback due to this ....
    Also which "Escrow" does he want to use? Does he accept paypal?

    You have a link where replica phones can be bought that WORK the same? So that means with Android and even iOs???

    yes they look good and they also are sold on eBay, but how can you sell them without getting into trouble?
    Because they use Apple design and Apple is known for not only contacting eBay to remove the listing but also for taking sellers to the court for copyright infringement.

    Better find another product to sell. So many good ideas out there, best to stay away from all replicas that are not only deceitful to sell to your customers but also may harm both you and your business directly.

    There are plenty of android phones that do not look like a iphone or any other branded phone. And cheap as well. But buy cheap and cheap is what you'll get.

    Yes. You will. Even if he is not scamming you, you will encounter problems on your account.
