I have a brand new, unopened iPhone stuck in Indonesian customs in Denpasar, and I can't retrieve it without paying a fortune. If anyone lives in that area and would like to pick it up, I will give you the information and you can go get it. The customs taxes are $150, so that's all you would have to pay to get it. If you are willing to go pick it up in Denpasar, please let me know immediately and I will call you with the information. The phone is worth $400, it's an 8GB iPhone.

by the way, if you're interested you might be asking what's in this for me. well if you get the phone and activate it, i can get a $100 Apple store credit. It doesn't affect you, you'll still be able to get the phone for $150.

I am trying to work out what the angle may be - there certainly is one . It's probably full up with things that make you hair curl.

Or it may possibly make you see the world differently.

you would think as this same story was on this site a few months ago the poor chap would have learnt to stop sending things to Bali. Given the number of current and ex people involved in the global drug trade currently being a resident of Bali I would probably avoid picking up any packages that are being held by customs

Haha, found this old thread from 2007. It does sound like I was doing something shady. Thankfully I got them to send the phone back to me and I ended up selling it to someone else.
