    Hey, I've been lurking around these forums for a bit, but I have a quick question.

    This is my situation:

    I am a reseller on Ebay and the current person I am partnered with seems a bit sketchy. This is what he wants to do, I list an item on Ebay with his template, when the item sells I send all the money to his paypal, then he will ship the item to me so I can ship it to the buyer. He said that he's doing it like this because you can only sell 4 Iphone 4's per month.

    We agreed on me sending him 50% first then the other 40% after I receive the item(I keep 10% plus seller fees)

    But my question is, what if he just takes the 50% and runs? The item is selling for $650, what will happen to me? Because I can only refund 50% of his money.

    I need serious answers.

    All the help is appreciated, thank you.

    If I could get an answer asap that would be great, because the item just sold.

    Thank you.

    (Sorry for bumping, I just need this answered quickly>

    Wow, interesting. That is funny. I have heard you can only buy 4 iphones per att account in the US. Never heard of this on gbay. I would call ebay and ask them if there is a limit on the sales of Iphone. I wouldn't mention your deal with Mr scetchy.
    If they agree then maybe he is just slow. I say this becuase he could just buy a seasoned gbay seller account for a couple bucks. If they don't say you have a limit he is scammer. If they agree and state there is a limit he could still be a scammer. For that kind of money I wouldn't do it. He could be selling stolen phones or fake ones, or broken ones. Either way it comes back to you and you are holding the bag.

    I have feeling you know this already and you were just hoping to hear some good news so you can make easy money. lol

    Lol yeah I was hoping to hear good news. I did contact ebay and he said it is very risky because it all will come back on me. He did verify and say there is a limit on Iphones being sold, but he said the best thing to do is just cancel the listing. I have just now canceled the listing. I don't feel like being sued.
