    I was browsing on ebay today and I saw an auction from a top rated ebay seller with over 30k feedback 99,8% positive selling iphone 5 64 gb for 700$ and the minimum order is 2 phones.
    He had 98 phones and at the time i saw the auction only 10 were left for sale.Initially I checked his feedback to see if someone received the phone and I notice the auction was from yesterday so no feedback about the phones.

    I've sent an email asking about the phones and i got this message (he posted an email on the auction in case someone has questions :) ):
    Code:
    Let me tell you some info about my phones :
    - They are all made by Apple and 100% Brand New FACTORY UNLOCKED
    - I have A1428 GSM and A1429 GSM with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
    - You can use the phones with any sim card from any country.
    - I bought the phones from Apple Factory Foxconn and also this is why i have such low prices.
    - I have both colors : Black and White.
    - They come in original sealed boxes with all original standard accessories.
    - Each phone have 1(one) year international Apple Care warranty . The warranty is valid once you activate the phone.
    - I will send you the phones with Royal Mail(3 to 5 days Express Delivery) or DHL with tracking number. I send from Scotland.
    - Free delivery and no customs. I can also use your preferred shipping company.
     
    The price with shipping and handling taxes included for 2 x Apple iPhone 5 64GB is 1400 USD.
     
    Thanks
    
    Now I searched on google after his email and found out the same auction on ebay.co.uk for iphone 4s for 312 gbp which are approx 500$ (ebay estimate) which of course was no longer for sale because they are very cheap :) On ebay.couk the seller have 4700 feedback 98,2% positive.

    Now this is clearly a scam but what I don't get is how do they get away with ebay/paypal since a lot of ppl will ask for refunds...and the accounts will be closed....or are these accounts hacked and someone posted the auction for a quick buck?

    EDIT:
    While I was writing this post I've got another email from him after i've sent a reply asking for more info :

    Most Probably Hacked Accounts Or maybe Bought Accounts because there is lot to be Made
    Btw investing 200-300$ you can also get lot of positive feedbacks maybe he did the same

    Could be a hacked account. Was there a lapse in his selling history?

    Their is no way you can gain that much feedback that quick with only a couple $100 invested.
    It must be a hacked account.
