Thread: Is this kind of Galaxy S deal credible?

  1. #1

    Question Is this kind of Galaxy S deal credible?

    http://list.gmarket.com.sg/g/404320932

    They sell it at 1/2 market prices on M1 shop.

    But the Gmarket is a well known and trustworthy shop.. And there is no negative feedback on the merchant.

    I would be very skeptical, and advise you to avoid them. They have a number of high value items priced very low, and looks too good to be true.
    Does Gmarket have a seller feedback system similar to ebay?

    Could try to call them up, they've listed a Singapore number. But I would only transact in person after having a chance to physically examine the item only.

    Fishy. That number is also used by intertrade inc, a scammer - but he uses it with a 601 code.

    Ah, there you go, it's in the gmarket ad too: 60166428792

    Did you call the number?

    FYI, there is nothing really "trustworthy" about GMarket. any scammer can sign on.

    The very fact that they use an Iphone image for a Galaxy S2 add is a tell tail sign it's bogus

    You may just get a photo of a Samsung Galaxy S II instead.
