There is this person on craigslist.org (Portland, or) who is offering a brand new in the box 8900 from T-Mobile for $300. I want to know what others think of this.
I contacted him, asked the process. he said he is authorized independent T-Mobile dealer, he said he would credit my T-Mobile account enough to cover the cost to purchase the phone from T-Mobile direct and then when I receive the phone from T-Mobile, I pay him direct through western union only $300

I told him ok letís do it. He asked for no info as he already had my cellular number from me replying to his craigslist ad. He texted back saying in had a credit of $625.00 on my T-Mobile account. I logged onto mytmobile.com and yes it had a payment of $625. Now he tells me to order my 8900 directly from T-Mobile customer service or through mytmobile.com and only pay him once I receive the phone in the mail! I asked what is in this for him and why would he want to just do this? "He replied I get commission off every customer that buys a phone at the end of the month"

Tell me what you guys think and how fishy this sounds! Thanks

Fishy doesn't begin to describe this deal. I would contact T-Mobile directly and get things corrected, ASAP.
