yup, it's a SCAM. still haven't got my iphone & when i tracked the Western Union MTCN (money transfer control number)...they freakin picked up the money bout a month ago. Yet, on my macsales-now acct...it still shows "awaiting payments."
they are a bunch of fraud. when i inquired about my order, they do not return any of my emails after I paid. i had my brother pretending to be a new customer, by using his email account to ask them a question about the delivery date, if he decided to buy it. they reply by saying, "don't worry we will ship it within 3 days, once it's paid in full." talk bout a bunch of scam artist. *sigh*
I filed a complaint on ic3.gov and also with the fraud department within the police station where i live. no hope in getting my money back, but i hope other ppl don't get lure into their scam.
on a lighter note, I finally got my iphone 32gb through Ebay (using Paypal) and from a sincere Seller.
im kind of a rookie at buying stuff online, so i didn't know about the payments "red flag," till i got scammed. (i know i feel like an idiot, being lured in).
my advice to you....never send money through Western Union or Money Gram and if it's too good to be true, then it is. Contacted Western Union and they said, they can't give me the information of the person picking up the cash. i guess, only the law enforcement or FBI can obtain it.
no offense, but if you don't believe me or if you have spare money to throw away, then try ordering through them, yourself....
