    Default iPhones made in Finland for sale?

    I'm trying to buy iPhones in bulk and I received an offer for iPhones which are made in Finland... this sounds like a scam, but has anyone heard of such thing? They claim to be original iPhones. As fas as I know they are all made in China.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I would say the most easy way to figure out if it is scum is check the payment method: if the payment is advance pay (even partially) and made in Western Union or MoneyGram i would say it's 99,99% scum.

    In case they are accepting other payments (more secure like paypal) then request for a sample or small shipments (paid partially per delivery) so that you can identify the product and they can't trick you ( for example sending you for a 100 pieces lot 10 iphones and 90 Chinese tphones)...

    if it works out I would like to know the supplier too... :p

    Highly unlikely to be a real thing. It seems that someone is playing on that fact that nokia phones that are made in finland (where they are from) are normally of better quality than ones made elsewhere.

    That's BS, no doubt.

    Greetings from Finland.

    There are NO iphones made in Finland. The only plant that makes them is in DongWang, Canton, China.

    It's DongGuan (东莞), not DongWang.

    Or maybe you are right, it's DongWang in FinLand
