There are actual guides on the internet on how to get free stuff on Amazon and eBay by making false claims. I had to move to selling cheaper products at high volume a few years ago to avoid the rampant scamming as much as I can.

Wow that's just wrong. Had a bit of a problem on ebay when I sold an iPhone and the buyer claimed it was used and water damaged. Luckily that same buyer had posted positive feedback earlier saying how she loved the new phone lol

You are lucky. Apple products are some of the most dangerous to sell because they are highly targeted since they are so easy to flip for cash.

Go on CraigsList some time and look at all the spammers posting offers to buy any Apple or Samsung Galaxy phones at any price even if they are damaged. What a lot of those people are doing is buying high-end damaged phones for cheap, then they go to eBay or Amazon and buy a working phone that matches the broken one, then switch the parts and send the broken one back to the seller after they've made a refund claim saying the phone is damaged.

Then they just sell the working one somewhere else for cash at a much higher price or traffic them overseas for insanely high prices.
