Messy Dealing with Allphones - Misleading eBay Listing
Last edited 09/12/2019 - 21:21
I bought an iPhone X from Allphones today - this listing:
It's advertised as "Open Box, phone and accessories are in an as new condition with no marks and no signs of wear, and phone has not been activated."
I received a phone call a few hours later from someone from Allphones telling me that the phone was actually quite used, with scratches on the back, and did I still want it. I questioned why the listing was still up and he told me that they are trying to take it down. I was smelling BS by this stage, as 21 other people had bought an X via this listing since 26/09/19, (and two have bought it today since my purchase). He said he was contacting all the other buyers - the smell of BS was getting stronger. It's pretty clear they are falsely representing their products in order to sell customers something inferior to what they have paid for.
Anyway, I cancelled the deal, but am pretty cranky at their 'bait and switch' methods. Has anyone else had this experience with them?
