Hi everyone. I am posting this for my god-daughter. She is not a mac user yet. She purchased a 4S iphone through Ebay the other day. The carrier is listed as Verizon. She purchased as a guest on paypal and the ebay account was her step father's account. She paid $375 for this phone. When she took it to a Verizon store to get it hooked up they told her that "this serial number came up as stolen." She contacted the seller of this phone and he said it was not stolen. The phone she purchased was listed as a new iphone 4s and the person that sent it mailed it in a 4 box. Has anyone else had experience with this? She would like to get her money back (she purchase in NC and the person that sold it to her is in CA) but she would like to find the person that had their iphone stolen. thanks for any advice.
