Thought you guys should see this.

This is Com Mirza, he's worth well over half a billion, soon to be billionaire.  He started off super poor in Canada decided at like age 7 to do something about cash, started hustling with lemonade stands.  He's living in the Burj Khalifa in Dubai now super wealthy, teaches entrepreneurs how to step up.  And I have the same mindset mentor as him  ;)

Every year that a new iPhone releases he makes a couple million just for fun.  This year he shared details on exactly what he does.  Just goes to show that hustler mindset never disappears, small time, millionaire or billionaire status.  I'd definitely recommend following him on facebook for some inspiration:

 

 

2+ million arbitration of iPhone 6

So many of you messaged me asking for the process. I share this process because I know most of you are lazy bastards and won't take any action even though I've been making lots of money the last 3 years from this process! I'll also probably take it down in a few days. those of you who take action and make some money off this I could be nothing but happy for you that you took action! I believe anyone can do this!!! The only thing holding you back is fear and a limited mindset. Opportunities like this are all around us everyday, you just need to seize them and make them work for you.

Currently in Asia Middle East Africa and parts of Europe you can't get the iPhone 6 or 6 plus till a few more months. Apple releases new iPhones to existing carriers and retailers and in their own stores in their primary markets like USA Canada UK and Australia first! They don't release to secondary or third markets until 2-3 months later. So there's a window of opportunity for anyone who can get the phones and ship them to buyers in these secondary and third markets where there are plenty of wealthy people who want the phones even more than consumers in primary markets. And are willing to pay a premium price to be one of the first people in their market to have the devices. The catch 22 is that you have a very small window of opportunity. Because the margins are so good the market gets flooded and your margin shrinks daily. So the window of opportunity is 24 hours within release up until about 36 hours. That's it!!! After that your stuck with stock and losing margins daily to competitors.

Few years ago I had a friend in the Middle East who asked me to do him a favour and procure some new iPhone 5 units. To my surprise I was able to secure almost 4000 units. He paid me 5000 aed per unit which works out to about 1388 usd per phone shipped to Middle East. I worked on streamlining the process so it was much easier every time and I was able to mitigate the risks further and procure more units.

I contacted apple and asked to buy a bulk order. And learned that I couldn't get the phones from apple direct because they wouldn't do business with me unless I had a ridiculous order paid upfront of like 100,000 phones which is 750 usd per phone which works out to 75 million or if I was a major phone carrier and had tons of buyers. They definitely wouldn't have sold it to me if they knew I was shipping to their secondary markets before they were and making profit off the demand.

So that was out of the question! Then I searched pre orders and the problem is delivery. Apple

Only has limited quantities when they launch a new device but they want to move quickly with getting the product out building up hungry crazy buyers and fighting for their market share which has been declining lately from strong competition. Since I needed the phones across the world in 24 hours I couldn't let delivery issues kill my margins. My only other option was to pay people to stand in line outside retail locations around the world on the release morning of the product. Apple limits the phones to two per person only! And the line ups take 10-12 hours sometimes longer sometimes less depends on how fast it moves, how many people lining up outside each store and where they are positioned in the lineup. They actually only let in a numbered amount of people at a time so it's madness with the waiting.

Last year outside the flagship apple store in NYC on 5th ave I had almost 250 people waiting in line. Some of them it took 16 hours lol! Line up was around the block and down the street forever!

We offer to pay each person who stands in line for us 10 bucks an hour! Roughly 100-160 per person. We give them prepaid credit cards with enough funds for two phones. This way we can cancel the cards if they disappear. And can dispute the transactions. If we gave cash then it would be much riskier! The first year we gave cash and a couple of people vanished. So learned from the mistake the second time out.

They buy the phones and one of our reps takes them off them when they come out of the store and pays them the money owed for waiting in line. You need to realize that it takes some staff members to be able to pull this off because there's so many moving parts and people to manage.

This works best with students because an extra 100-160 is great supplemental income for them and they bring tons of friends to join them so we get more phones in the process and they build mini downlines of people they get money from. So you don't need thousands of people individually you just need organizers and people who manage groups to bring their entire group to stand in line and some staff or partners to manage the logistics.

Last year in another apple location in NYC I saw 500-600 Chinese people with winter clothes and cardboard boxes as blankets and matts lined up outside the apple store, they barely spoke English but someone had managed to organize them outside the night before and they camped out all evening night and morning. I assume the guy must have gotten a 1000 plus phones off that and in china they sell for more than Dubai and Middle East most of the time. But you also gets sheikhs who are willing to pay anything for it. My buyer last year sold 2 phones with the gold back for 50k to some crazy materialistic sheikh who wanted his kids to be the first to have them. Totally nuts if you ask me but that's supply and demand for you.

Once we have the inventory in hand it is shipped the very same day in 3 batches to my buyer in Middle East. He's got a pre order list of thousands of buyers and cellphone kiosks and retailers. I also built a buyer list over the last three years by placing ads on classified sites 30-45 days prior to the launch date. Which brought in hundreds of emails a month from interested buyers who would be added to a list and informed and updated as we came closer to the release date to build buzz and help me move more units individually and as a wholesaler to my buyer. We ship in 3 batches in case there's any issues with them and we lose an order for any reason or it's delayed. I once almost lost 200 phones because it was somehow delayed and the margins shrunk to where I barely made a profit. Since then I found a proper shipping company to use and a friend who worked there to handle the importing of the phones and track everything.

It's really important to find buyers prior to purchasing any phones or spending any money or recruiting people to stand in line. 

Without the buyers buying at a considerable margin it's not worth the risk. Prior to sending the shipment we take photos and get the buyer to place a deposit in escrow. You can use services likes escrow.com. To do that! Once the product lands and is inspected it is then collected by us and inspected by my buyer. Once he is done inspecting the phones he wires us the rest of the money on the spot and takes possession and responsibility of his devices.

If anyone wants to duplicate this process here's some tips. Post ads in classified sites in each country you believe people will buy them in. You can test multiple countries. 

I used multiple outlets but just an example is you can go to dubizzle. Com which is a classified site in Dubai and search iPhone 6. You will find examples of people listing them for 5000 aed more or less. But way above retail price. You can post your own ads and pictures and build a list of potential buyers. You can also find people on eBay, Craigslist, and local classified sites. You can even place an ad in newspapers. So there's many ways to build a small list out of it that can potentially make you profits.

This is way more in depth than I thought I would go but there's still a few more days before launch and some of you may be able to pull it off. So good luck!!!

Here's the numbers.

Cost was 3.7 million and change to secure 5000 units off 2500 people waiting in line.

Cost to pay each person varies but lets just say it's a average of

10 hours at 10 dollars an hour. That's 250,000.

Cost to ship the safest and fastest way is about 83,333 dollars per batch there's 3 batches so it totals to another 250,000. It's really expensive to ship things across the world unless your amazon lol!

Cost to pay and outsource to staff and partners to handle the logistics is 100k

Total costs all together are roughly. 4.3 million and change

Each unit is sold at a cost of 1388. 5000 units total revenue is 6.9 mill and change.

Cost 4.3 minus revenue 6.9 = do some math people!

Even If you didn't have much capital and did this on a small scale even 10 phones average 400 profit per phone you could make 4k within 48 hours! Happy hunting fellas! Millions of people have the iPhone 5 and have been waiting for the iPhone 6 and all the new upgrades. Millions of them waited longer for this phone than the iPhone 5S so I expect lots of consumer activity which means opportunity for you.

By the way this post

May self destruct in a few days, go go gadget!!!!

Crazy.

Unless I'm wrong, you could most likely sell them for more than $520 in net profit each, when you're not selling them in wholesale quantity right? You could probably sell them at 1000% plus on a small scale if you hustle a little more and cut out the middle (east) man

Holy Shit. I am SUPER interested in this. Sounds fucking amazing- and VERY difficult but also VERY doable. 

My main question//concern is whether these US phones actually will WORK in these other countries. And I woul have a similar question for other items that could potentially be arbitraged in a similar way

For example: http://www.macworld.co.uk/news/apple/why-you-shouldnt-buy-us-iphone-uk-3481491/

Yo inifinity- I think the issue with that is the timing... having people wait in line is the fastest possible way to get them and ship them.

The logistics on all of this is absolutely INSANE btw.... I work in a very "lostically-centered" business right now..... and I can tell you that handling//managing the logistics of this, with the addition of the insaely small time window will make this a VERY VERY VERY difficult thing to pull off. 

That being said- it sounds very doable with some practice, and if we hire the right people who know how to handle logistics at a high level.

I think the issue here is that it needs to be individuals, because unless that phone store has individual buyers, they aren't going to swing those phones around in time before the margins fall to nothing... meaning they won't be able to buy em from you for enought o make it work

I wonder what customs would say if you tried bringing 100 with you on a plane. Doesn't sound illegal but I would imagine they would have something to say. You wouldn't have to claim it but timing is everything and a delay at the border would fuck you. Fly to Dubai or wherever your market is with a list of customers on pre sale that you generated from Craigslist. The reason I was thinking a local phone store is they would already have a pre sale list.

Yeah, I see what you're saying about an actual store or something- that's actually a really legit idea. I like it. Don't think this is illegal- been reading up on a few places. 

Basically, what we're talking about here is the "import//export" business... there are all sorts of arbitrage opportunities available for different products, and that's exactly what import//export looks to take advantage of. Really really cool opportunity though

Hold on.  This thread needs a

Hold on.  This thread needs a mindset shift real quick.

This is not illegal.  As you aren't running a business from another country as an Apple reseller.  Once you purchase the iPhone in the US, it's legally your property.  Movies on the other hand are copyright protected.

If you can get the product to another country with high demand, and as long as there are no laws in that country which bar you from doing so, or you are complying with all tax laws etc, this is fine.

This is where the hustler mindset comes into play - if you're shipping to Brazil or another Latin American country, you may have to make some connections within the customs office or a higher up gov employee - basically pay them off, which is common place and in some cases "legal" there.  Or in Hong Kong there's an open port meaning no customs no checks, if you have a person to receive the shipment you just walk right in.

There are a lot of different ways to do this, at the end of the day all that matters is making sure the cash is in your pocket.

As for the 'hard work' and 'difficult' part - this is definitely the wrong mindset to have in any business operation.  Lots of work sure, but this is all fun, work in my mind is seen as fun.  To organize and make everything run smoothly is the payoff.  That's the part that is actually the most fun.  So definitely not hard work and not difficult.  That kind of mindset is what kills all entrepreneurs.

This stuff should be easy and effortless, otherwise why do it at all?

If your mindset is focused on all the reasons why this will be hard, difficult and illegal, guess what?  Your subconscious will find for you all the reason this is hard, difficult and illegal.

This is hustler mentality.  This is putting everything together in the easiest way possible, all the moving parts and organization of the entire process - to make sure that at the end of the day everyone is happy and you have that money in your pocket.

This is anything but hard work and difficult.  This kind of stuff actually gives me a hard on.  If it's gray area you're worried about, well it's not illegal yet, so play on, but be careful ;)

 

High-end clients to pick up this stuff from you, is actually a lot easier than you think once you have a Success Mindset.  These kinds of people just gravitate towards one another and can actually feel and notice an extraordinary person when they are around one.  The more you maintain a successful mindset, the more successful people you meet, the more extraordinary people you develop into your circle, the easier it is to find connections.  All these successful people have a hustler mindset - which is just putting things together in the easiest and best way to make sure everyone is happy and you get paid.

Nah man, I think it's SUPER

Had posted somethin longer but I'm not trying to be argumentative here... I'm actually posting a craigslist ad as we speak lol- gonna make this happen (prob on a smaller scale first, due to lack of cash)

But I see where you're coming from- with having the mindset that it's going to be easy etc. That's pretty cool. 

Kinda interested to see how this goes. 

It's also importnat to be sure to get the version that doesn't come with a carrier (Just called the apple store and they won't be selling unlocked versions, so your buyer is going to need to do that themselves).

For any business opportunity

For any business opportunity you're looking into, you should always do your Due Diligence - make sure all your bases are covered and conceive every step along the way.

As for the steps themselves, I expect each one to work out for the best for me, and I expect them to be easy.  As if I doubt it will be easy, or think it won't work - that seeds failure into my plan.  If there's a doubt anywhere in your plan, you've got to add more information until you can conceive it happening - Know it will happen.

Always do your Due Diligence and never rush into anything.  If you can't see it happening without difficulty or problems, mitigate those risks as much as possible until it feels right.

I never rush, I stop when I notice I'm rushing and slow down until I'm calm and Know that things will work out fine.  I move quick, but I don't rush.

Depending how big you're looking to go.  If it's small packages / batches I'm sure stating what it is won't be an issue, or just list it as a gift.  Those guys get so many products, business transactions everyday it's normal.  I used to ship internationally digital cameras, laptops, computer hardware constantly.  If you're shipping huge amounts, go with freight - or you'll probably need to outsource to someone with experience in that country and let them handle it, or find someone to show you the ropes.

I think there are some online services, but I just need a way to confirm the number when dubizzle texts it- they don't allow posts from outside the UAE, and they use your mobile number as a way to confirm this

I hired someone in india to do the postings for me, once I created the copy- but he isn't allowed to use mobile phones, so I can't have him do it, unfortuantely. Also- it is crazy how cheap these guys are. 4/hour for 20 hours of work = $80 loll

It's gotta be SMS text.... skype and google voice unfortunately are blocked in UAE 

I'm shooting to do my best for the iphone release, but more importantly, this is awesome practice for when the apple watch comes out. This actually isn't that hard. There's just a lot of things that have to be worked out through experience. 

Like trial and error to the max lol.... I don't thikn I've ever done something where I've gotten as many notifications that my activities are not legal loll or violate some sort of terms of service- so it's a lot of just finding workarounds for all this shit

Im waiting back on two people to see if I can make a decent size shipment straight to a distributer in china, if not I'll have to go through the classifieds. Which even locally there is quite a bit of demand going for 1000-1200. That cuts big time into profit after paying someone to wait in line, or even waiting in line yourself.

If you can get some buyers in Argentina- they're paying out the ass for the iphone 6. I've been just looking at the cost for all sorts of different countries and coming up with a list of the best places to try and sell. I'm also working full-time though, so if I'm not able to make this happen by Friday, It's at least got the wheels turnin in my head... trying to sorta just figure things out

Basically the idea is that you don't want there to be any risk of the buyer pulling out in any way- so he needs to def. be paying in cash (whether it's paypal or an escrow account) and the money has to be deposited (FULLY)  in some way shape or form, prior to sending the phone

"Your desire to improve and

"Your desire to improve and progress must be stronger than the challenges that lay ahead of you. Unless your will is strong enough, your mindset determined enough, most challenges will cause you to resort back to the easy comfortable and petty work ethic. Those who's work ethic is above the normal, are the ones who are determined to overcome any and all challenges that lay ahead. I've met thousands of entrepreneurs and the ones who are highly successful have never been the type to give excuses or bitch and moan! They just do the work and if they don't know how they learn it from someone who does and apply it harder than they're teachers. 

If your chasing dreams and wondering why you haven't built that multi million dollar company or built a passive investment portfolio yet you need to ask yourself how bad you really frickin want it! 

I say this often but I'll keep saying it forever! You can't meet a dream half way it's all or nothing! If your not giving your all every single day then no one is to blame but you!"

Long story short, there is transferred intent + foreseeability into his actions that would hold him liable for damages in lost profit for Apple. So unless you're trying to get railed in the ass I suggest you remove this post. That is assuming OP is the one carrying the act out and he is an American citizen. Apple will probably have trouble serving distributor in Middle East as he can easily just avoid being served. 

The issue hinges on the fact that the act of selling merchandise such as this to someone in the middle east isn't in and of itself illegal, it is the fact that OP can reasonably foresee and has knowledge of how these phones will be distributed. This is how the intent is transferred and why OP is liable. This is painfully obvious that it is illegal. Sorry to burst your guys bubble, but OP isn't some genius who found some legal loophole fast track to the 1% life - he/she is simply capitalizing on a particular niche black market where it's a high risk high reward scenario.

In order to bring a civil

In order to bring a civil suit Apple would have to 1) Prove that damages occurred 2) That it was in violation of a statute and 3) Redressability. This forum thread isn't incriminating either, because it's extremely difficult, if not nearly impossible, to admit "electronic correspondence" into evidence.

I think it's fine

1) Damages have occurred.

1) Damages have occurred. Profits have been misplaced from Apple to distributors and OP. Apple has contracts of when they're to become available at every country. 2) This has more to do with common law, in other words PRECEDENT, but yes statutes from the UCC would help address the measure of damages that would be used to identify what standard would be used to figure out how much OP is liable for. If you're curious of the potential damages it'd be 2-708, 2-710, or 2-718. Redressability isn't even relevant here bro. Just because you can't pay doesn't mean Apple won't sue the fuck out of you for trying to cut a piece of THEIR pie out lmao. There's legit policies at play here. E.g. Deter kids. 

Edit:

Actually yea thinking about it, OP probably wouldn't be traced back via internet. Personally, I wouldn't risk it.

I have an iPhone 5s I bought

I have an iPhone 5s I bought a few months ago, is that illegal for me to sell too?  What about the car I bought a couple years ago is that illegal too?  My buyer just happens to be in a different country.

I never signed any contracts with Apple, these are unlocked straight from the company iPhones which I purchased legally with my own money.  What I do with them after that is my business.  If someone wants to make selling second hands goods illegal, good luck lobbying to the government a law for that.  This is 100% legal.  I would recommend you do some homework and let these guys hustle and make some cash.

The ONLY way this is illegal is if I'm a reseller for Apple in another country with a contract that makes doing so illegal.

Looks like I have a buyer lined up for 10 unlocked slate grey iPhone 6 Plus 128gb in Singapore motha fuckas.  Have 5 people ready to wait outside my local Apple store to be paid $100 each.  I'm calling Apple tomorrow to figure out exact price after tax and putting funds on prepaid visas.

Also met a an Asian girlie in Canada awhile back with a big ass family in China who are willing to pay over double on Apple products.  The only reason they pay over is due to cost of travel, plane tickets, visas, etc. and don't want to wait 3 months for the Asia release.

HUSTLE UP BITCHES - Time to get paid!

100% illegal in China right now. Why don't you do your homework before you run your mouth like an idiot

TL;DR: China hasn't received gov't approval for the iphone 6 thus making it in fact, I-L-L-E-G-A-L.

Yeah, Apple isn't losing any

Yeah, Apple isn't losing any profits here. The property is bought at their asking price. They made their profit. In fact I would go so far as to say that Apple may be doing this on purpose  as a marketing tactic, in order to sell more phones. Without guys like Jabronovich lining up 5000 college kids, they otherwise wouldn't have sold those phones right then.

Oh please dude.  There

Oh please dude.  There NOTHING in that article which says this is illegal.

This is Apple trying to sell in the Chinese market, and China is delaying.  There is no way to enforce or stop people from selling personal property to one another.

This is a 100% legal venture.  I buy no contract, no company, straight unlocked iPhone and decide I want to sell.  1 day or 1 year later what's the difference?

Quit hatin hater go back to your job and bitch and moan about something else
