If you are anything like me, then you would choose to do your shopping online from the comfort of your own slobbery over traipsing around a crowded department store. Online shopping is a convenient way for both buyers and sellers to get access to the products that they need. From gadgets to brides, practically anything can be bought over the world wide web. There are many risks with using online services but the biggest gamble is that the recipient is trustworthy.
In order for sites like eBay and Craigslist to be successful, both ends of the transaction must run smoothly because otherwise you may end up with a counterfeit version of that Special Edition Lightsaber and very empty pockets. There is also the risk that the people involved are not what they seem. On that note, there is some recent footage which has gone viral showing what happens when a rogue iPhone deal turns violent very quickly.
Joseph Faulkner, from Indiana, was waiting in the parking lot of his local Walmart for a pre-planned bulk exchange between him and an unknown buyer of a thousand-dollars worth of cellphones. But he got more than he bargained for. Thankfully his injuries were not fatal but they could have been serious. Watch the video over on the next page to see what happened.
