Hoopla Over IPHONES Spawns Suspicious Offers
(From The USA Today -- By Jim Hopkins)
Can't wait until the end of the month to buy an IPHONE?
Someone in Atlanta is advertising APPLE's must-have cellphone for $800 on classifieds site CRAIGSLIST. The ad includes a photo purporting to show the gadget.
In status-conscious Los Angeles, another advertiser is taking orders.
"All offers considered," the Craigslist ad published Wednesday says. "Phones are brand new in the box."
In Houston, a seller has "locked in an exclusive order of iPhones for June 15th release," offering the phone for $695. "As soon as they become available you will be able to collect it."
These offers are likely questionable, since APPLE isn't releasing it until June 29th.
It isn't for sale anywhere now, Apple spokeswoman NATALIE KERRIS says.
