Gold iPhone 5S 16GB sells for over $10,000 on eBay; seller sends Second Chance offer, cancels $10K transaction

So, some news agencies today reported that a gold iPhone 5S 16GB has sold for over $10,000 on eBay. However, we decided to do some fact checking and actually contacted the seller, who didn’t even know that this item sold for so much, and has sent a second chance offer to the second highest bidder.

Yeah, no one is that crazy to pay over 10x more for an Apple product that isn’t even real gold.

Update: We received a message from the seller who has cancelled the $10,000 transaction. Ah, this could have been the most expensive iPhone 5S Gold (not real gold) edition.
