Verizon Employee Tries to Sell His Limited Edition RAZR MAXX on eBay Before He Even Has It, Bidding Starts at $750

Update:  Some crazy person actually paid $2250 for this. The auction is closed.

It is no longer a secret that Verizon is going to offer employees their very own special edition DROID RAZR or RAZR MAXX. Word leaked out last week that VZW workers would have the opportunity to purchase a red-backed and individually engraved version of the device at discounted prices. In not surprising fashion, one of those workers is using it to his advantage to make a couple of bucks via eBay.

His listing claims that the device will be in his hands around March 2 or 3 and has opened up the bidding at $750. Yep, that’s $100 more than you can buy the device for straight up off contract in traditional grey and black. Interested?

Cheers Kevin!

    this is not so bad, looks like Samsung’s marvel.

    Is it me, or does it look like the seller on ebay made a new account and bidded on his own phone 2 times so he wont look like a fool? What a queef.

    PLUS if you actually look at the front of the device, you can clearly see where the Verizon logo was photochopped to be moved to the left.

    DL = Fail.

    -_- You’re making yourself look beyond stupid:

    1) That is not a Maxx in the picture
    2) The ‘bidder’ bid against himself from 750 up to 2200
    3) The ‘bidder’ created an account just for that auction

    This was a fake sale, and you fell for it instantly with zero discernible research.

    They’d never be able to track him….Especially with it’s personalized # for each phone.

    I am all for taking money from stupid people! And I think its hilarious that someone would pay more than normal price for a made up serial number on back… I love it! All you have to do is tell someone something is special and they lose all ability to think. This is a great opportunity for the employees to grab some cash from the morons.

    I person who won the auction has a zero bid history.  I bet it is someone who created a new account just to screw with this seller and has no intention of paying for this phone.

  • bakdroid

    I bet it was someone trolling him.  He clicked buy it now but probably won’t actually pay for it.  If he does he is a bigger moron then the people who actually bought the Razr on contract.

    Hahaha It says some idiot paid the BIN price of $2,250.00, what a joke…

    P.T. Barnum was right, there is a sucker born every minute :D

    I thought ebay has rules against selling items you don’t have yet after the PS3 release?

  • tbaybe

    2250 for a phone??? thats insane

    I’m sure he made a fake name and bid himself to get it off there.  He probably got freaked out thinking the bosses would do something to him for selling his employee device.

      It will be really funny when Ebay comes after him for their cut of the sale.  What is it that they charge?  10%?  He will have to pay another $225 after he pays for the actual phone.

    What is MORE strange than the person selling it. Is the bidder bidded 1K then, came right back and bidded 2.5K?  ”
