Iphones going crazy on ebay already?
well I just heard that iphones coming out soon on the news so of course i went on ebay to check out on the iphones and guess what i find
now the buyer clearly states that he is selling an e-mail address is this allowed on ebay just curious? and whos fault it will be the buyer or the seller?
lol thats funny people actually bid on it.
Since the seller is clearly selling an e-mail address, it's legal.
E-mail addresses and domains related to hyped products can be lucrative for somebody with access to the product being sold, which is why they're frequently bought & sold on eBay like this. The thing is I doubt iPhones are going to be plentiful enough for people to get any quantity of unlockable phones that aren't part of a service contract, so I don't know how lucrative THAT address would be for some time. Besides, it's a Yahoo mail address, which isn't that credible anyway -- if I were planning to sell iPhones, I would invest the <$10/yr on a real domain. I would be a bit leery of somebody hawking expensive products from a Yahoo mail address.
As far as fault, the seller has clearly stated what the auction is for, but that doesn't stop the fools who buy empty PS3 boxes when the auction clearly states you're bidding on the empty box. Or a picture of a cellphone instead of the actual cellphone. As long as the seller has worded it clearly, the buyer assumes responsibility. Now if it were misleading then the buyer would have a legitimate complaint. Still, more often than not, eBay tends to side with buyers over sellers when a complaint arises.
lmao..what is the world coming to..
I didn't realize people bought and sold free email accounts. Aside from GMail in the beta era, that is.

Yeah, that is kinda crazy. I could see it being worthwhile if it was an iphone-specific domain. And there must be thousands of combinations of words that mean "we sell iphones" that they could use for free. Some people...
I own iPhoneUnlockers.com and theiPhoneUnlockers.com (I'm looking to sell right now!)
Wow 300 bucks for a site;..
I think this is more of people just being plain old dumb. I know I've already been pulled into a pyramid scam about 4 years ago. I went to ebay to try to get people to sign up for me (only enough people to get my money back). And in my topic I clearly stated that I just wanted to get information out there DO NOT BID but I would ship the winner a blue paper clip just because ebay said I violated TOS w/o the paper clip. You would not beleive the amount of bidders for this paper clip. I think I ended up selling it for like $25. And i mean all teh information was there.
And this was years ago when I was young and dumb. . . I would do no such thing at this point in my life.
thats f'ed up for the winner...
I just sold a yahoo email for $250. I clearly stated in the title and description that what i was selling was in fact an email and not an actual iphone. I do kind of feel bad that this guy was stupid enough to buy it, but seriously, how fucked up can you be to misread the auction.
If you were me and he asked for his money back, would you give all of it back, some, or none?

Dude you're an ass, You know damn well you are selling an email address hoping others think it's an actual product.
I saw a person sell a picture of a cell phone on ebay, the user thought they were buying a phone, the seller got owned on judge judy.
yea judge judy owned that lady on ebay
I think that if people are stupid enough to not read an auction thoroughly, they should suck it up and cut their losses. Having said that, I'm trying to get an iPhone within the next week or two.
