Uh-oh. Scammers abound eBay, and for sure, the hype on Apple's much-publicized product, the iPhone, has brought out the residents of Scammerland to prey on hopeful Apple fans and the gullible many. The iPhone is yet to be released but some have been bidding almost one thousand dollars just to get the dibs on the alleged pre-launch release iPhone units.

Be warned. An eBay seller named rgonzales23455 sends forth this auction:



Please note: I have 6 of these phones available for immediate shipping.. I accept Paypal only for this auction.. Free shipping via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation.. Will ship immediately after payment clears Monday - Friday.

Here is an article regarding the iPhone eBay auction. The high bidder is counting on Paypal and eBay to return his money if it is a scam. IMHO there is little chance that the auction was legit.

What would be a reason not to? Negligence?
