So I bought a used iPhone 5 off of eBay after asking the seller some pretty specific questions about it. He always replied within minutes and seemed to be on the level. He had 100% positive feedback (over 300 rating) and has been on eBay for 8 years. The price was just OK, not too good to be true. He said it was his phone, that he had used for a year and then had AT&T unlock it so he could sell it. So the phone arrived today, and it is passcode locked. It has an ugly graphic on the lock screen, and that's as far as I can get. It also came in a box labeled with the serial and IMEI number of some other phone (the IMEI number on the box doesn't match the one printed on the back of the phone). It has only been about four hours since I contacted the seller, but so far he hasn't replied. I called AT&T, and they said that the phone has not been reported lost or stolen. So is this a scam, or is the seller just ignorant about needing to wipe the phone? If it is a scam, how does it work? I have of course opened a case with eBay. Shouldn't it be an easy win for me? Why would anyone sell a phone that has been passcode locked?
