Default Too good to be true?

Please Login to Remove!

I just stumbled across this on e-bay. Is it to good to be true? Compared to the prices on the forum its way cheaper. Does the invoice look authentic to you?

BLACKBERRY STORM 9530 NEW SEALED UNLOCKED VERIZON AT&T - eBay (item 260384454752 end time Mar-30-09 14:44:34 PDT) The express checkout at the bottom gives you the device for $290!

Admin, if you think this should go in thge Buy/sell/trade section pleaes move there.

thanks

Looking at the history of the seller, I would be a little skeptical. He has a feedback of 1, and that's as a buyer not a seller.

Rule of thumb - if you think it's too good to be true, it most likely is.

Does it matter that the phone number he gives is for (504) 265-1559
New Orleans, LA and his auction says Item location: Anaconda, Montana, United States ??? Buyer Beware!!!

and my looking up says it is a land line......

I know plenty of people with my area code who have since left the area and kept the same number, therefore their number would not match their location by area code.

However, I also agree with jsconyers and am skeptical as well about that "deal".
