Bought a stolen iPhone 5 off craigslist

I bought a stolen iPhone 5 off craigslist earlier today. I was buying it in order to resell on eBay. I'm basically just making this thread to ask what my options are. Try and sell overseas?

Unfortunatelly yes.
If its a verizon or AT&T iphone you have options.
If its a Sprint i5 unless its unlocked by sprint for international use then you wont be able to use it overseas either.
If its a verizon it will automaticly work with any GSM carrier outside the US and if its AT&T you can purchase an imei unlock for it on ebay and then it will work fine outside the US.
Did he tell you or do you know what company its sold under?

In the future, I always advise getting the ESN ahead of time to make sure it is clean to try and avoid some of the problems that can happen from purchasing used devices.

When you're buying a $400+ item you've got to be sure it can be activated!
