    bought 10 blackberry phones from china for £480 all in.
    selling like hot cakes on ebay for £150 each.

    Listing fully states that they are from china and pictures include the Chinese boxes etc..

    the phones are unlocked and in english.

    This seems too easy, in the last 4 hours i have sold 4 :china: after charges that will be a 300% profit!

    here you go some free information for you.. to stop messages..

    Blackberry bold 9700.
    bought from http://www.aliexpress.com/product-f...y-9700-cheap-price-10pcs-lot-wholesalers.html

    conversions done with http://www.xe.com
    Cost me 773.686 USD.
    selling for 241.777 USD each.
    = 1644.084 USD profit.

    well that's great for you and I hope your account won't get banned or that Paypal will not freeze your earning

    Are they genuine or replicas? (probably a stupid question) and are you listing them as is?

    they are replica, lol the "torch" is called a "troch"

    yeah my listing states as is, the listing also states exactly where they come from etc.. and that i have tested them as well.

    i dont know :S i mean the real deal is around £200 more so maybe people are happy paying the lower price :S

    as i said seems too easy, i am keeping the money and not spending it in case people want to dispute.

    Dude... if you clearly state that they're chinese... you're not doing shady business. It's the customer job to pay attention when they buy. Kinda reminds me of that dude on here who sold the xbox BOX on craigslist for like $350-$450. People bought it....

    Thats what I thought, I have clearly stated they are Chinese as well as said sold as is with full pictures of the Chinese boxes.

    i have under cut the real deal by £200 tho and still making a £100 profit on each.

    Well but if you see blackberry, then you "USE" the original brand, i dont think its legal. ebay will probably ban u if someone reports.

    but nice job :O

    If anything is going to give here it's going to be Paypal. Paypal normally look into accounts that suddenly start receiving much more funds coming than normal. Especially those linked to an Ebay account.

    Good luck and here's to hoping your PP account isn't already banned.

    It seems odd to make a gloat thread and advertise your source and everything. Seems like not-so-clever advertising for whoever is supposedly distributing those products.

    ok I have checked the website ..... if I buy them I have to pay € 623 including shipping .... you say that they sell for € 175 per item, so I would make € 1750, so my profit would be € 1077 .... however, this is not profit because with this money I also have to pay ebay and paypal fees .....
    and there are so many people on ebay that simply cannot read ... you tell them it is from China and not original blackberry .... then when they receive it they complaion to you .... you tell them to read the auction text .... and they will file a complaint with paypal .... so there will be much trouble involved .... I have been selling on eBay for a long time and I know the buyers there .....

    Using the Blackberry brand like a previous poster said would likely get you in trouble as it's not actually a Blackberry, but what do I know?
