Brand new OnePlus 6 128GB on eBay **$89.00**

Just wondering on what anyone's thoughts are on this item.

https://m.ebay.com.au/itm/OnePlus-6-Midnight-Black-Dual-128G...

There are four separate listing of the same item, all by the same seller. Of course, it looks too good to be true. I'm just thinking, what could go wrong if you bought it? Worst case scenario would be that nothing arrives (or an empty box) and you simply do a return through ebay and you'll get your money back?

    My thoughts are you have too much free time if you're voluntarily asking to spend hours trying to get your money back from a fake seller.

    •  

      True, but what is the purpose of the seller then if you can just get your money back through ebay? Are they trying to work off the odd one guy out of ten who won't ask for a refund?

    My thought: something is wrong with…
    You! Not the listing

      I didn't buy the item, I'm just opening up a discussion about potential scam items

    Having a few of these scam eBay posts put up lately. I wonder if it’s the scammer trying to expedite their scam :p

    its already been deleted. replaced by: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/OnePlus-6-Midnight-Black-Dual-12...

    is that the same seller?

    •  

      Nah different seller. The original seller had no account history (that's what deterred me from buying it in the first place)

    $89 = $826.99 :P

    Worst case scenario they send you a box filled with rocks and you don't get your money back.

      box filled with rocks

      I was thinking exactly that.

      I was wondering, how would your chances be for a successful claim for a refund if you receive something like this from a private seller off eBay? (although you have mentioned no refund)

      Assuming that you have received the item by registered post and the weight corresponded to the advertised item.

      Has this happened to anyone?

      Cheers

        This is what I was thinking. Has anyone got any experience with this before?

      •  

        Not personally but anecdotally reading online, the consensus seems to be that it doesn't end well for the buyer unless the seller is a known scammer.

          Yeah, looks like it.

          Recently I purchased a second hand power amp off eBay for $2400 (RRP $4500 new) weighing @ 40KGS.
          After the sale, the seller contacted me saying that he cannot ship (due to flood) however .. took my money of course.
          Luckily, with PayPal protection, I got a refund 6 weeks later.
          I was imagining if he sent this unit damaged and not/partially working .. or a box filled full of bricks/other material that weighs the same.
          I would have got jack.
          Lesson learnt. Don't spend too much for a secondhand item off a private seller.

          Cheers
