Default Beware of Cash for iPhones

I got a new iPhone and sent my old iPhone 4s to these scammers. Their ad quoted me "up to" $57 depending on condition. They re now offering me $6.00. My phone was in excellent condition.

O admit, I didn't read the terms and conditions carefully, but they have $57 in huge neon green numbers with all the rest in fine print. I feel that it is at the very least deceptive.

Doc - check Gazelle.com sold one phone to them for $125, and another for $75. Payment was prompt, and it was not a scam.

Too late. I already sent them my phone and I'm pretty sure that they're not going ot send it back unless I pay some outrageous fee.

Wish I had talked to you first.
