How to avoid becoming a victim of fraud when buying iPhone

We have seen a lot of posts on the Internet about victims of fraud that were left without their money and without promised smartphone.

First sign – Price

Let’s assume that you have decided to buy the iPhone 5S – to please your wife or daughter. What usually buyer does? That’s right, compares the offers from various shops and selects the best combination of price, delivery and so on. By analyzing the market you will get the idea of the average price of the smartphone. And if at some website you see the price of $200 with an average price of $400 you better leave that website.

Second sign – Website

Phishing websites are usually disguised into online stores, but they are not and often consist of only one page to which you will land from the search engine. Try to navigate on the website, open other pages on the website – if you can’t do that, then in from of you the real scammers. As a rule, they design their websites in the style of Apple. Remember: reliable shops will not do that, because there is a big probability to be on the court with lawyers because of copyrights rules.

Only prepayment

Often scammers work exclusively on prepaid systems, with 100 percent of payment. They use Perfect Money, Payza and other payment systems, in order to not reveal themselves. The price is very low so the payment system account doesn’t need to be verified.

Sometimes, even reliable webstores asks to provide some prepayment, when ordering delivery to another city, but not the full amount of the device.

Payment at the terminal

Yes, it does happen. Some fraudsters can leave their QIWI wallet and ask to transfer the full cost of the smartphone. As a result, victim loses his money and doesn’t receive the iPhone.

The absence of the sales receipt

In any case do not buy the device without a sales receipt. If the seller doesn’t give the check, it is likely that he is trying to sell you a fake device.

Perhaps many of these tips may seem obvious, but believe me, there are enough of victims of fraud, which are fell on such tricks.
