    iPod Touch 16 GB for $200??!?! *probably a SCAM*

    Hey i was just browsing amazon earlier today. i came across a like-new iPot 16GB for $200 then i emailed the seller asking why he was selling it for such a low proce, if it has the negative effect, warranty and bricked or not...
    he just emailed back saying

    "

    The product is brand new in original box whit all acesories.

    scam, think about it. If it sounds too good to be true, that's probably a scam

    Just cause its through amazon doesnt mean its reputable. be wary, chances are he will ask for a money order through western union or something like that. almost definitely a scam

    you are probably correct.. the last few emails from this seller are very vague and "drunk"...

    btw, the merchants "name" is ilisapeti lino, and also i cant find his sales page on amazon any more...

    well, then i guess that the deal from target.com is probably the best one right now.

    If that is a direct cut/paste of his email, the email alone should set off alarms and sirens in your head. The spelling and grammar seems as if English is not this person's first language. I suspect this to be a person in a country in which you have no way of recovering your money once the deal goes down.

    PS - What's the Target deal? I see it listed at $399, same as everyone else, and not even in stock ATM.

    well, there is a speacial discount coupon code which gets you $30 off iTouch 8Gig or 16Gig...
    so, what i bought was... (($299 + $5.95) - $30) + taxes. = $288

    so an ipod touch 8 gig in $288. nice deal... only drawback, not in stock yet.
