    Such warnings fall on deaf years.
    Like you, many people usually don't do any research before sending their loved mobiles to these or other cowboys that they never heard of before.

    Was thinking exactly the same as Grumbler. A web search takes a few minutes and would have saved you a lot of hassle.

    I was going to second the comments here about Mobile Cash Mate as well. Try not to use them.

    I sent them my Samsung Galaxy S and they promised good money for it but then I received an email saying that the handset was not in a good condition and they could not offer the amount they had promised.

    I didn't mind getting paid less but it is the way they approach the whole situation. Once they had offered the low price, I had the right to remove my offer but then the put a very aggressive time limit on my decision making and if I didn't respond within that they would process the phone and send out a cheque for the reduced amount.

    What's with rushing me to get a decision out of me, may be because the deal being offered is in their financial interest and not mine!

    I withdrew my phone and ensured I leave my feed back here so other's can choose a better company.

    Unfortunately I used the comparison result from MSE and chose them as they had the best offer. As we all trust MSE, it would be natural for one to assume that any companies in their results are ethical too but unfortunately on this occasion Mobile Cash Mate disappointed a lot!

    MCM - Great decision

    I had 16 old company phones to recycle and did a lot of researching for the best prices. MCM came out tops for most. I packaged them all up and sent them special delivery.

    I know the quoted price is an 'up to' price and being a realist I get that there will always be bumps and scrapes on a work phone so I was very happy when MCM only reduced the whole batch by around £5. Once I'd accepted the reviewed quote the money was in the bank the very next day.

    As I had a good experience with the work phones, I then went home and packaged up my personal ones too. Same speed, same result. Great service, great communications; I'll recommend and use this company again, any day.

    "Jakz58" seems to be a popular alias of review-writers in the web.
    Call me cynic, but I guess all these 'reviews' were paid for.

    Sorry to see negatives posts about Mobile Cashmate. I recently used them to sell a Samsung Galaxy phone and a mini iPad and found them excellent. They offered a higher price than other sites I researched, and they processed the order and paid up quickly. I'd happily use them again.

    agreed with earthworm and grumbler, personal care should be the utmost importance.

    I wouldn't use any of them personally. Its a business, who's sole aim is to MAKE money. I would use Ebay, where I can dictate the condition, price and sale. I have a better opportunity of making the maximum amount possible for my nearly new phone.

    con - go elsewhere
    they go high and then when you send the phone offer low and threaten a redelivery charge if you arent in to sign. All the other companies I have used have been great - Mobilecashmate are unpleasant cowboys

    Scam - use another company
    They offered me £400 for my iphone like several other companies, the phone was mint condition, sent it off and they claimed there were scratches which there weren't, I asked for phone back which they did return promptly which I then sent to another company Envirofone that gave me an agreed £380 with no issues, the price had dropped by £20 due to the delay of mobilecashmate.

    Please do not ignore the bad comments on this company. I did to my detriment. They will never offer you the amount quoted. And you will end up paying for postage. There are companies like music magpie offering same amounts with great customer service. I would like to see a governing body shut companies like this down because it borders on criminal behaviour.
