    I bought my BB Bold here in India from Negri Electronics. The price for an unlocked phone is much higher than what you have shown in your email but they are really really reliable. The shipment took 3-4 days. Or else, if you have friends in HK, you can get them to buy you an unlocked version of CSL.

    This seems to be easy - If it seems too good to be true...

    The prices are ridiculously low - about 1/2 the price quoted by reputable companies. Either its a scam or the phones are stolen.

    The same message was spammed onto 3 message boards here - reputable companies don't do that.

    A simple Google search shows almost identical posts spammed all over the internet, but no street address, no website - only throwaway untraceable emails.

    The phone number is a UK 'follow me' redirect which could go anywhere in the world. There is no way to trace it to a human or company.

    The post quoted IS spam from this message board. I found 3 copies across CB forums, all now reported as spam. Looks like a real live scam trying to cash in on users anxious to get the new toys.
