I would think they are far from legit to be honest.

I agree, I would not touch them with a ten foot barge pole. Fake 'zip code' company email address is a hotmail address. Very poor english, to the point that it does not make sense.

If you cannot afford it full retail, then do not look anywhere else. If you are poor, then the iphone is not for you, nor is it really marketed for you.
I also cannot afford an iphone, would like one ofcourse... but I am not going to hunt through all of the dodgy chinese deals looking for one.

Removed the link - no link love to scammers.

Also, whenever you see a post with a long list of models and a hotmail address, for a seller that accepts payment via Western Union then IT IS A SCAM.

If you send money to these people you will end up with NO MONEY AND NO PHONE.

If you can't afford buying an iPhone from a store, then save money. Also the iPhone will cost to run - mobile data is not cheap. Think before you buy or you will lose money.

The same reason why poor people don't have flash houses and new cars

Cause they can't afford them

No different for a mobile phone

Check out trademe for a Nokia 1100, 5110

If you can't afford an iPhone then an iPod Touch is the next best thing.
