One of my close friends wants to buy an iPhone 3G on alibaba.com where the dealer has offered to sell him a new iPhone 3G 8GB unlocked for $200. I would not trust that but he insists that it is his own money and he wishes buy it from there. Is it safe? If you were in his place, would you buy it?
Would anyone share their personal experiences of buying phones like this? I'm unable to convince him that it's a scam.
