Hmmm...think about it....registered In USA..location in Japan...wants money sent to Romania....come on guys dont throw your dam money away if your thinking about buying from people on Ebay...I have one thing to say.....If the people most interetsed in SE P900 and those involved in SE ie working for them cant get the phone yet do you honestly think thats these punks on Ebay have the phone!!!!

Posted by mrlover
He/she accepts paypal and his/her paypal account is verified & confirmed. Any comments

Posted by JiggyJaggy
Man u can get £500 for that phone right now, why would they sell it for £250 or so?

Also there account is verified, but if your bidding in the UK and things go wrong you wont be covered! Trust me i have been there!

Posted by mrlover
What about in Canada? does paypal cover? thanks

Its possible he may or may not be the real deal.
Remember, there are still 'tester only' and developer samples of the phone out there. Some guy may just want to capitalize on that.
What you should learn to do in Ebay is to go over the sellers feedback to see what they've traded in over the past few months, or so.
It'll give you a fair idea of how legit he/she is.
This guy you've sent us a link to, for instance, has traded in items ranging from GSM phones to golf shoes to....and I'm not making this up...Rectal Thermometers (gulp!).
So, who knows if its real or not.
It wouldn't surprise me if he turns out to be a real A$$-h0le though...that was a joke, by the way....Ahem...rectal thermometers and whatnot!!!

I just ordered from this guy this morning and I knew I should have looked to you folks first. His account although odd does seem to be legitimate. JiggyJaggy - “money sent to Romania” I missed that part and can’t find the info. I am a little unsure to say the least but I want that phone and now! PayPal will cover up to five hundred dollars if something goes wrong. I got the P800 I have now the same way from Hong Kong last year and everything was fine. Anyway… I hope I get the phone and all goes well. I’ll be sure to post if or when something happens.

Also, anyone think someone will make a little joypad to swap out with the keypad.

Thanks.

Sorry folks -- this is definitely a scam. There was an artcle last week on MSN about ROmaina being the world's leader in cybercrime these days. And I would not count on PayPal refundi9ng money -- read the small print very carefully -- I do not think it covers international transactions...

Posted by jmburt
the best part is that the guy who bought the phone on ebay has negative feedback for not paying for a p800.

why when you can get it from . and not worry about anything. There full release OEM.

Posted by jackblue
are the rectal thermometers still available?

Posted by jimcarter
You can always protect yourself by making the payment using your credit card via Paypal,
Your credit card company will then protect you, if you dont receive the phone, you can simply do a chargeback to recover the money

Posted by JiggyJaggy
true credit card companies will protect you. Thats one goos thing...just read all the small print though guys...

To my knowledge, paypal only cover up to $500USD if the seller has "Paypal Buyer Protection",which he doesn't have (no paypal Buyer Proection icon in seller information on ebay listing). So if this is a Fraud, eBay will use "Standard purchase protection" which only cover up to $200USD - $25 fee. Paypal will also try to recover your money by using "Buyer Complain Process". To be eligible to file a Buyer Complain Process are, here are the conditions:

1.You must use PayPal to pay for your purchase

2.Your claim must be filed within 30 days of the payment

3.Your purchase is a tangible item (physical goods that are shipped to you). Services and intangible items, such as emailed recipes and e-books, are not covered.

4.The item you purchased was never received. The Buyer Complaint process only covers items that were never received. Complaints regarding items that were received in a state other than what was described in the listing will appear on the seller's record

With the condition # 4, what if the seller send an empty package with all the tracking #? With all the tracking info, he/she can present that to paypal as a proof of a complete transaction. Aren't we doom???

Regarding credit card protection, I think they only proctect you from unauthorized used of your credit card, not against authorized payment from you for a Fraud transaction. Any thoughts ladies/gentleman?

BTW, all six P900 auctions of his have been sold, & I am one of the buyer, but still reluctant to pay

The only way to protect yourself is not buying this obvious fraud ! lol
How can someone even think this is real? you must be a complete moron to bid and pay for such a scam....

Posted by mrlover
No need to use harsh word on other members. I might be a loser if I got tricked, but I might be a winner if this is real. The chance of this is real can be less than 50% that's y I am reluctant to pay. You cann't be 100% sure that this is a scam. Where is your fact? You can't base your fact on the price difference.


Posted by Jah

Also there are escrow services that are also a scam - ie not real. I have been suggetsed two services by these fraudsters; both point to the same web site.

Have a look at these:

www.goods-trade.com and

www.Inteligent-Trade.com (spelling error "intelligent"!)

I know this a scam site as when I first used it a few weeks ago the registration web page was faulty and it does not use SSL!

These guys are becoming more sophisticated - so spread the word!

@mrlover, We are all keen to see this new phone, its easy to get "convinced" that you have a chance of getting one early, the best advice i can offer is this:
When a new phone is about to come out, lots of crooks use Ebay to lure people,

I have NEVER seen a genuine phone available on EBAY before it is available to buy over the counter from the manufacturer,

Ebay is a great place to buy SECONDHAND phones, not new ones that are NOT OUT yet.

Keep your hard earned money untill the phone is available in shops, it wont be long.

ALSO please dont post topics like "p900 out Nov 3", just because an Ebay crook says it in his lie.

I do hope you don't send him any money. This is a certain scam, not some <50% thing. The pattern is so common on ebay it's ridiculous - it's just way too easy to get away with.

@Pachy

Thanks for your kind advise, I have noticed that trend since July of this year when Samsung D700, Nokia 6600 & Siemens sx1 about to release (but still delay until Nov/Dec). I am very conscious of the situation that's y I am still reluctant to pay and that's y I joined this forum to discuss & learn ideas & experiences from others.

BTW, I emailed the guy asking if the phone is a prototype or a tester for developer. He said its the final version with all the standard accessories. He also said that he prefer bank wire or western union (no fee for seller), but paypal is ok too. I will try to buy myself sometime, maybe eBay will learn something new from this auction. His paypal account its premier type & verified & he has a website too (www.int-trading.com). Anyhow; thanks for all advise.

take care

My advice is that you wait until there are legitimate phones out there.
If this guy is a scam artist, he's just a smart one and smart people are always good at having the "perfect" answer for the questions that nag at us the most.
Will you have to be a tad bit patient? Yes.
Is that ideal? Probably not.
The benefit is that you've saved yourself the embarrassment and frustration of throwing your money away and also discouraged a potential criminal from taking advantage of other Ebay users.
Report it to Ebay and Paypal and have them investigate. Remember, their reputation is on the line with everyone of these crooked transactions that occur. If they can't protect us, then what good are they?
In the meantime, be smart and protect yourself.
In about 3 weeks or less, the phone will be out for you to purchase comfortably and with the assurance that its "ALL GOOD".
Now isn't that worth waiting just a little bit longer for? I mean, you've waited this long already, right?

JiggyJaggy, jmburt Please reply to my post.

JiggyJaggy says he is asking for payment to be sent to Romania. I can’t find this info any ware. He does say that not using paypal will save him $20. When I ask him where I would send the money he replied with ### ###### drive, San Jose, CA 95132.

Jmburt said that someone or I had negative feedback for not paying for a p800. If he was talking about me, he is way off.

I think I will go through with the order but after all this I think I would be more weary of placing an order with some of the folks that have posted here.

I asked the seller in eBay int-trading for a photo of the real P900 he is selling - no response yet. Why no photo unless the phone does not exist.

Edit: Got a reply. int-trading does NOT have the phones yet. This trader will order them from Japan. Sounds risky to me.

Sorry i got mixed up with another seller who wanted cash paid to him in Romania. Can you send me the link for your auction so i can check it out pleasE? Also are you the seller that everyone is questioning with regards to the p900 auction and its validity?

Come on be realistic... the chance this is real is less then 0%
The fact he uses all those trics and ebay to sell one of the most wanted phone actually is just the prove you need that this is fraud. He just try to find some persons who still believes in Santa Claus lollllllll

I think you are just trying to be funny with this thread... no serious, or not having brain dammage, person will ever think this is not a fraud

Let us know what happens with your buying of that P800...im really interetsed.

Posted by fonzki
I almost got scammed last year when i wanted the P800 very much. Good thing i held off payment.

Same old Romanian scammer. Still up to his old tricks.

Posted by mrlover
Is this the guy that you are talking about?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3055844910&category=41349

This is the third time he listed the p900 auction. The first one the price was $650, the second one $699, and this one is $749 (+$50 if u pay via paypal). I think he is legit.
