Watch out for Cheap Apple iPhone 7 Sale Scams

Advertisement

Since the release of Apple's iPhone 7, scammers have started putting out advertisements or social media posts claiming iPhone users or fans can receive brand new iPhone 7s way below the market price. Once contacted by their potential victims, the scammers will ask them to wire or transfer money to their accounts in order to finalize the sales, but once the money has been received, the scammers will disappear without delivering the iPhone 7, which will leave the victims frustrated, angry, and some feeling stupid.

It is important to remember that when there is a release of a popular product, especially the expensive ones, scammers will try to take advantage of people who consume or use the product. They will use all deceptive means of tricking their potential victims into falling for their scams. This is why it is important that online users only shop at reputable local or online stores. Also, it is not recommended to wire, or transfer money using Western Union, MoneyGram or other money transfer services to people in order to buy something from them. This is because wire and money transfers are virtually untraceable and victims will never be able to recover their money once it has been received.

Remember, whether buying cheap iPhones or something else online from people or websites that you cannot prove are trustworthy, caution should always be taken because there is no way to determine who the sellers are.
