    I ended up giving them the info listed above. They said since I only wanted one unit they would have to take payment by MoneyGram or Western Union. They said they only accept Paypal if the order is $3000 or more (I guess cuz they have to pay fees for Paypal while it would be free on their end for MG or WU). I told them I was only comfortable using Paypal and that if that wasn't possible cancel the order. And they did. And that was that. They were very polite in their dealings with me, quick responses and everything. I just couldn't bring myself to trust them. If anyone decides to take the plunge please keep us updated on how it goes. I'll just have to wait patiently for Newegg or Negri or B & H. Kinda weird that these seem to be only sources of the Lumia Unicorn.

    Hmm, very sketchy... Definitely don't want to do anything but PayPal.

    MoneyGram or Western Union? You officially have your answer now, 100% scam. Perhaps whoever runs their site is a prince from Nigeria.

    The registered owners of that house are
    - URBANOWSKI RICHARD L & MARY K

    Would appear he is a Director for KMG Chemicals. KMG has some wide ranging facilities, but I see nothing in England or Hungary

    Maybe we could find the phone and see if they are aware that someone is using their address.

    Lol no offense man. Every single country on earth has something others can poke fun at . And 419 scams definitely aren't exclusive to Nigeria lol.

    I hope no one "takes the plunge". This was an obvious fake from the start. Please everyone, for the love of anything you believe in, do not send money to this vendor. lol

    Stood in a long line at Chipotle last night and decided to whip out the 1520 and stream some live TV. About 15-20 minutes worth, no buffering, no big hit on the battery. Shoulda seen the heads turn

    Well he said no big hit on the battery, so I'm guessing "no". lol

    Can't wait for the release version of 8.1 so that they can turn all the debugging options off.

    Not quite yet... already have the swipe/tap bug, don't want to risk more despite how much I want to upgrade. I'll wait for the official release with Cyan. Taking full advantage of this bad boy with my switch to unlimited LTE :D

    Yep. I feel pretty safe using my USAA credit card, but no way I'd do this. I use MoneyGram every month to send money to family in Thailand, and their page goes out of the way to warn you about using their service to pay for goods.

    Me too! 8.1 has been great. I made sure that all apps and systems apps (i.e. glance,access points etc) are updated before I upgraded to 8.1. A couple of reboots(after upgrade and before) too wouldn't hurt. Make sure to check if the camera is working before and after.

    Someone is selling their rm-938 at the marketplace. I don't know the seller so I can't vouch for him. If anyone is looking for a 2nd hand check the link http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...-1520-3-a.html

    Upgraded to 8.1 - amazing is an understatement. swipe/tap is the same as was with 8.0 (once in a while) - only bug (?!) is the battery....

    Well, B&H has dropped the 7-14 days shipping on the black one and changed the status to "back ordered." Can't say I'm surprised.
