    The tracking number he gave me was a chinese one too. [EMS]

    What do you guys think, do you think it's a cheap chinese imitation?
    I have asked him and he said no, but now, knowing that the item is coming from china, im about to crap my pants.

    I had asked where the item is coming from
    And if it is real.
    He said U.S and it is real.
    If he lied about it coming from US, he could lie about it being real.
    I already opened a paypal dispute about this.

    Is that the iPod in the picture? Looks real to me..

    EDIT: I realized that it was an example of what it should look like condition-wise when you receive it.

    Anyways, I wouldn't think so. I've been very successful purchasing things from that area even though it seems like fraud.

    "example"

    but its the fact that it's coming from china, and as most of us know now, that chinese business are fraudulent. He lied about it coming from US and his account got deleted.

    This is why I am worried.


    FCK.
    height on the desc is 4.3 inches
    on the offical website it is 4.1 inches.

    but the rest of the dimensions are correct.

    I'm just hoping it's a real one thats been stolen out of the factory by a worker or something.

    I dont care if he got it illegally, as long as it is real.
    So lets wait. I'll prob receive it by the end of this week, thursday or friday hopefully.

    Yes, maybe a Onda or a DealExtreme clone.
    He had stated it was a real one though, so I don't know if I should believe him or not.
    Since he had lied about the item's location.

    Alright, well I already bought a $160 one and it arrived to be real.
    You can search around on www.offer.com
    They have tons of stolen/fake goods.
