Just received this junk mail in the letterbox

Looks like scam, but believable as prices not too ridiculously cheap

Spelling not bad, only one grammatical mistake i could pickup but hard to spot

Considering they are also selling the recalled Galaxy Note 7... most likely a scam :-)

Did a quick Google search of the Domain they use for the first email on that pamphlet and it shows up some interesting results.

 

Would suggest reporting it via http://www.theorb.org.nz/ or forwarding it onto the DIA https://www.dia.govt.nz/diawebsite.nsf/wpg_URL/Services-Anti-Spam-Postal-scams as can imagine even though the prices aren't super cheap a few people would easily fall for this.

Have heard of these scams before.

 

Sometimes they do deliver product to the early buyers, at a loss, to get positive reviews / testimony, which they then use to scam a larger group of buyers (who never get what they ordered).

Samsung is selling refurb galaxy note7 with a slightly smaller battery. But obviously a scam anyways.
