    Wow, did you spend more than a day finding one? 50-100 more, you do know they have one day shipping options right

    Scammer update; he emailed me back, I asked about a macbook and had to repeat my question on his buisness info:

    "Our website is still under construction, here is my contact phone number:+447031978986, our method of payment is via western union, and we do ship via Ups for just 2 to 3days.
    Here is our company details....

    Registered No. 03832249

    Do get back to us with your full delivery address so that we can start packing and label the phone with it in order to make it readiness for shipment. Your contact phone number will also be needed."

    Apparently he forgot I asked about a macbook, not a phone. Western union, a guaranteed payment method to steal your money, lol!

    If anyone in the UK feels like calling the scammer and wasting his time/dime, 99% chance its a guy in Nigeria with a cell phone given the 44+703 prefix...
    Good find sifugazz, this will keep others (newbies) who are thinking of buying a Nexus; if it's too good to be true, it's most probably is.
