However, such a trick should be performed with great caution.

You really have to be careful that second-hand goods are authentic when buying from people on Facebook Marketplace.

It’s much better to check products with the seller in person so you can get a feel for it, as the iPhone has to work to be worth anything.

Others have also expressed caution in the comments on TikTok.

“I did that, ended up with the phone being flagged as stolen by previous owners and I had to contact the police and wait three months to get my money,” claimed one user.

“You need to make sure you do your research so you don’t get ripped off,” Aash said.

So it’s not a good idea to try unless you’re absolutely sure of what you’re doing.

Otherwise, you might actually find yourself out of pocket.
