    There is one legitimate place to buy used Apple products- at Apple’s clearance and reconditioned web site at the bottom of their main web site. I’ve bought a Mac Air and an Apple 4K TV from that site with no problems. They are reconditioned products thoroughly check out and any defective parts replaced.

    Don: In general, yes. But there are a lot of local independent brick & mortar shops with long histories of being good businesses too.

    Good video Gary. I have also heard/read that one should NOT call the phone numbers in the scam emails. What are the specific risks of doing that?

    Gene: First, WHY would you call it? The risks are that the person you talk to scams you out of money or worse. Never assume that you are smarter than a scammer. They know what to say. They have done this before. Trying to scam a scammer is a recipe for disaster.
