Insects in mobile bought from ebay seller skhuamei2015

There is a certain dealer from China from which i bought a mobile around 4months ago. I tested it and then boxed it. I recently had the need to use my two cards in one device so opened it again and begun using it. The dealer was skhuamei2015 beware not to buy from him. I at the beginning of last week noticed that there was a bug on my screen small and white moving around. At first i believed that something got in and it will die after a while or get out the same way. The second day there were two of them and the third three. That made me a little curious and i googled it. I found out that i wasn't the only one similar problem have occurred. It was a kind of mite that colonizes mobile phones. The things i read said that this bug can possibly enter your ear. The next day i examined the case i was using and counted and killed a dozen of this bugs on it. This means the get out harvest and go back in. I was forced to put it in an airtight container and since i cant use it i am giving it a treatment with a very strong insecticide for about a month and i will see. Please beware when you buy mobiles from China origin and stay away from that dealer. When i tried to contact him he called a liar. I told him that all this will go in public either he accepts it back or not its a matter of hygiene.

That would have "bugged" me as well....

Unfortunately, that is a risk when dealing with overseas sellers. Lesson learned.

As would the saint rightly put it the unguardedly should be marked for other to easily spot them and stay away. Any way my cure is going well.
