    The number 7543006353 is a Mobile Phone by Google Voice

    report it? Google already knows it their number, they issued it. And if I understand correctly, nothing illegal has occurred yet........... whats to report?

    Sure, Google knows the number but it may not know the number is being used in a possible criminal activity. In most cases an attempt to commit an illegal act is also illegal. It's best to report all scam activity to the service provider and let them sort it out.

    your asking price but Im more concerned about the condition since Im not a
    local buyer.I do hope the condition is as you have stated and the item is
    exactly as shown in the pictures?

    Hmm. You used to post for sale ads on QRZ. You did not get Verified so you are posting for sale ads on other sites. Scammers are now coming after you. Take a look at the attempted scams reported on QRZ since July 1 and you'll note that NONE of them originated on QRZ. Maybe it's time to re-evaluate your strategy. Apparently scammers have figured out that it is extremely difficult to make a buck on QRZ so they've gone elsewhere.
