    Hi community,

    today I've found very suspicious ad on my country online shop/store.
    One guy - located in Poland, who has recently registered on this website, is selling two apple products(they are both one of the latest apple models).
    He is selling them at a price of 400 euro, while their price is 4-5 times higher.

    He is offering this, and he is willing to do this via Amazon Buyer Protection.

    I mean, if he stays on this website(running in my country as I said, Bosnia and Herzegovina), then chances are huge that someone will get scammed very soon..

    Whoever knows anything about this, post your opinion :)
    Thank you.

    Really? Why would he sell a product for 400€ while he can sell it for more than 1600€..
    If he is selling it at a cheap price, why is he offering to sell it in my country while he is located in Poland ? It is easier to sell it there for sure :D

    whats the point of this thread?
    2 options:
    1. you want to learn how to scam like your polish friend
    2. you are bored.

    if it looks too good to be true... you know the rest.
    so just report the guy and move on.

    good day

    I sell my products in all europeEven if I consider it "my business secret", I will tell you some things about this
    low price. You know some factories have a special price for its employees? I mean a
    little one, of course. Well, I have this privilege. I think that's all
    I can tell you, but I'm sure you see my point of view. Also I want to assure you that
    my price includes also a little profit, enough to keep me in business and to offer me
    some extra money. I'm not a greedy person and also I think it's better not to keep
    money, but to let them run. So that's it about my little price!



    And you ask what's the point of this thread? Well I would say that many of my countrymen will believe that this is true, they will send their money and they will get scammed.
    I just wanted to know if anyone had previous experiences with this scam offers, and didn't ask a guide to show me how it is done.

    That's it dude ;)

    I put the a55hole factor in this thread at 7.8, and a stupid factor of 7.2.

    OP has seen something he doesn't understand and has made the mistake of coming here hoping to find someone knowledgeable to explain to him what he's seeing. He knows it doesn't look right, but he also doesn't understand it.

    OP, the phrase is "If something looks too good to be true, then it isn't." There's no telling exactly what the scam is, but it's obviously a scam of some sort. The most innocent explanation I can think of is that he's using the crazy-low price as a lure to bring people in to look at his offer, and maybe see something else that they will buy that ISN'T a scam. He could say "sorry sold out" at the Apple product, but then guide them to a Samsung Galaxy S5.

    Or, it could be a straight-up scam. Low prices make stupid people do stupid things. He might sell 100 unites at $300 each ($30,000) and by the time his customers figure-out they've been scammed, he's converted the money into cash and is long gone.

    Are they REALLY selling iPhones at 1/5 retail price. HELL no. Whatever IS going on that you can't tell, the one thing that's certain is that THAT is NOT happening.

    Anways, OP, that's what I think. I apologise on behalf of BHW members that aren't complete a55holes and douchebags, like the people posting in this thread. Hopefully, each of them will get hit by a car in the near future, or die of cancer, or get caught by the Police with photos of themselves getting porked up the pooper by a large Rotweiller, and spend the next 5 years of so in jail, or something positive like that will happen to them, so that they will either change, or die, and we'll never have them bother us again.
