Website to buy cheap phones but could be fake or bootleg?
I just came across this website on craigslist.ca that sell phones for cheap prices.The prices of the phones are ridiculously cheap. But I want to know if anyone has had experience with this website or anyone can shed some light on this website. The website is newlysell.com.
Aw jeeeezzz. I decided to try and buy a phone on the website cos I saw that they accept paypal payments. And I know that Paypal has buyer protection. So I had made an order and when the order was placed, there was no indication on where and when to make a payment. The website just provided me with an order number. So I opened up a chat with someone on that website and I asked when and where to make payment. He/she replied Western Union, and immediately I got disappointed cos sending money through Western Union can sometimes come up as a scam and I will never receive my item. I had asked the person I was speaking with I will not pay by Western Union, and I asked him when I can use paypal to make a payment. And the agent said he is updating the paypal account and it won't be available until 2 months later....
Yeah. Sounds like a scam to me. I've been burned on a few small online purchases and it's made me pretty shy, particularly of large purchases. Just think, if some little fly-by-night outfit can sell for 1/2 what Amazon or TigerDirect or any of the big boys could sell it for, why wouldn't the big boys just lower their price? I can see someone selling for 10%-15% less but if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
