    I'd like to hear a couple of your experiences because I've been planning to buy an iPhone 8 Plus in there at a much more affordable cost. There are dozens of listings offering cheaper prices than the ones in Power Mac, and some of them describes that what they're selling have no issues, have good battery health and other things, but I'm still having doubts. What do you guys suggest? Thanks!

    The FB Marketplace is just a platform so it really depends on the seller, I have bought a number of items in FB Marketplace, although never a phone, and all turned out good. As rule of thumb, always do a meetup and inspect the item as thoroughly as possible.Never ever ever agree on doing a shipping option wherein you pay first then they ship the item. Lastly if the price is too good to be true, it probably is.
