Anyone in auckland area with z3x box willing to help me. I recently got scamed and bought a blacklisted phone. I paid decent price for what I thought was a decent phone. Later found out it doesnt work with vodafone network. Only 2 degrees. I tried to contact seller but he is gone. I need help. Im a student in high school saved up for ages for this phone. Now its a fancy brick too me.

Hi shivstar,

You advised iPhone was purchased ' Through a friend ' via email to my work email address you found online, Contact that friend and get the details

I also advised you to take the iPhone to the local police station so it can be returned to the owner,

John

If the phone is blacklisted then it's either stolen or lost. You should contact whoever sold the phone to you. If this person is not available, hand the phone to the police saying it is blocked and you bought it without knowing.

You might lose the money but there's nothing anyone here can do for you. Put this as a lesson.
