Bought new TP2 from ebay, got activated but now Sprint said it was stolen

This is my chain off event:

Got my new TP2 last night from an ebay seller with 65 + feedback and NO neg feedback. Another buyer bought from him a TP2 and he already given him a + feedback.

I got my TP2 last night and could not get it activated. I did it on the web few times and I call the REP and he said to call the owner to get it released from his account.

This AM the seller actually called me on my phone and said everything is taken care off. I went to the Sprint website and I got it transfer to my new TP2. No problem and I am happy!

Now this evening a Sprint fraud dept guy called me and said the phone was stolen. He said not my fault. He just want the seller id on ebay. He left a msg when I was away and I call back and I guess maybe he will call me tomorrow.

1. I am really giving this seller a doubt. I give him my # because I want it to get fix right away and I got his phone number too. I mean why would he call me with his own number if he know it was stolen?

2. Is anything going to happen to my new phone?

Re: Bought new TP2 from ebay, got activated but now Sprint said it was stolen

considering how many different types of fraud it would consist of to sell a stolen phone and ship it i doubt he would give his real number to you if he indeed knew it was stolen. though you never know

I was wondering if something like this was going to happen to you... I've seen you post a few times asking questions about buying one off ebay. Sorry to hear you had this outcome.

i dont see how they activated it in first place.I think you will be able to keep your phone with no problems depending on rep and what happens with the guy who sold stolen phone.

I wonder if it was his (the sellers) and he claimed it stolen.

Re: Bought new TP2 from ebay, got activated but now Sprint said it was stolen

Sounds like the seller claimed it lost/stolen. Sprint told you to call the owner, which was obviously the seller. So, it was no longer stolen, but lost, found, then sold. If anything, the seller will have to return the replacement phone or pay for the one s/he sold to you. You will be fine, your phone is your phone now. And Sprint wants your money, so no worries.
