    Do you have his phone number? And do you know where he lives? If he does try and scam you then just show up at his house.

    Even a stolen iPhone would be more

    I'd say either broken or fake. Tell him to take pics

    Too good to be true.
    Don't do it.

    It'll either be fake, in which case you've lost £30.
    It'll be broken, see above.
    Or it'll be stolen, in which case you're handling stolen goods and that's breaking the law.

    Theres an often quoted phrase that fits this situation perfectly:

    "If if seems too good to be true, then it probably is"

    Sorry but even the most market unaware iPhone owner knows they don't sell for 30 sheets. The fact he's contacted you out of the blue with the deal of the centuary, would make me immediately suspicious.
