Good News! Not everyone is a scam artist!

Ok, for those of you following along on the iphone issue, I have some exciting news.
After much due-diligence on my part, I found a fella that actually sold me an iphone 3gs 16gig for a decent price!
Thank god hey?
Just when I was beginning to think everyone selling iphones online was a shithead, up pops Ron. I’m really happy with him.
Look, bottom line is this; don’t buy an iphone from anyone that wants Western Union. The only way to truly protect yourself is to meet the seller in person, preferably at a service provider’s store. That way you can check the phone right there. Make sure it’s not stolen and be 100% confident that you are getting what you paid for.
K, I have to go now, I want to play with my phone. Yay me1

In the end I decided to go with a craigslist listing to buy an iphone. 1. almost all the “authentic, wholesale” phones are a scam and 2. I will be able to go and look at this one in person. (read below for corresponding story)
