Unfortunately this was a scam, the party you were in contact with does not work for Best Buy. I wish I had better news.
I am a Best Buy Employee, but the views that I post are my own and not that of Best Buy.

Hi ravi_prakash,


Welcome to the forum and thanks for reaching out! It’s important to know exactly who you’re dealing with when making online purchases. I’m glad you came to us for insight.

 
@jdogg836 is correct. The person you are working with would not have affiliation with Best Buy. We do not conduct business outside of North America nor do we ship internationally. If you believe you have been involved in a scam, I would definitely advise reaching out to local authorities for assistance on the matter. 


Sincerely,

Sure, thank you @jdogg and @Luke for responding to my issue
The person i told u that he's a manager of best buy, even has an employee ID same like best buy ID card or he might be using some original best buy employee ID for this illegal activities.

They are spread worldwide, and these scam people is cheating each and everyone who aproaches them for buying a new phone after watching their fake ads on social media.
This must be taken as a serious issue to stop scams all over the world

Hi ravi_prakash,


I agree. It’s a large issue and quite concerning. Being that we’re based in the U.S. and this is happening globally, it adds another level of difficulty to the situation. I hope the local authorities are able to assist you with this matter.
