to anyone who's thinking of selling a mobile, here's a few cautionary notes:
this happended to me and others and it could happen to you if you're not careful.
when selling a mobile DO NOT and i stress DO NOT sell to anyone who requests the mobile be shipped to outside the UK (most notably eastern europe) - this is part of a scam,
ALWAYS get insurance cover on a high-priced phone, to cover yourself (even to a UK address)
ALWAYS check the buyer's history - remember you can refuse to complete the sale if you think the circumstances are fraudulent -
PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL, i was stung to the tune of £250.00 through a scam
make sure it doesn't happen to you
