Someone named rgonzales23455 has posted a record for iPhone on eBay. And that is despite the fact that iPhone is not shipping yet and it's not approved by the FCC !
But people like to believe in "too good to be true" propositions. They are giving away money (someone bided almost a thousand) in a hope for getting unreleased product.

As you may already know Apple's forthcoming iPhone has made a lot of hype in media. It's very likely to see more and more such scams in the future. This obsession of getting newest products as fast as possible charges scammer's enthusiasm. Beware.
