Please whatever you do, try and avoid buying cheap mobile phones off ebay that claim to be genuine. They are anything BUT.
Usually these phones are horrible rips of the original and once you've recieved item, the scammer is usually well on their way. These scammers also deal in games consoles and other high-priced electronic items. These items are normally ordered from China, for about 1/10 of the price.
If it's too good to be true then avoid at all costs.
Chinese ebayers may contact you through the 'Contact ebayer' function and then befriend you by seeming very friendly and trustworthy and offer cheap goods, and ask you to pay by bank transfer. Never send money by a bank transfer unless the sale is on ebay and to a trustworthy UK or US ebayer - you must obviously do all necessary checks first.
