    I would need an advice with my quiet bizarre case. I bought second hand iPhone 5c from the internet but then I found out it´s locked on iCloud. There was a message from previous owner, that the phone was lost and erased and his phone number. But when I called him he claimed that he has never lost his iPhone 5c, hi was just calling from it and thus he could not turn off find my phone because he would turn of his originall phone. Is there any chance that my phone was somehow clonned? I really don´t know what to do now, when the message on the phone is false and I dont know who was the previsous owner and which ID it actually was! The seller from internet of course does not communicate any more. Thanks for any help!! Linda

    Report it to the police, you bought a stolen phone.

    No matter how elaborate these stories get, there's still no way to bypass it.
