Interested in buying an Apple-refurbished product? Well, you can now do just that on eBay. Previously to buy an Apple product that had been factory refurbished, you had to go onto Apple's online store. A store on eBay is now selling these same exact products, at the same exact price, with everything being identical.
The store on eBay has no way to trace it back to Apple--its corporate info is hidden and there is no contact info. However, 9to5mac is reporting that they have learned that this store is, in fact, owned and run by Apple. It's essentially an Apple Store on eBay, but it only sells the refurbished products.
The biggest tell-tale sign is that the prices are exactly the same. That, combined with all of the extras offered with the product, really tell the story. However, 9to5mac says that not a single person at eBay would go on the record confirming that this is a store owned and run by Apple.
