Beware of ALEXANISH, sold a stolen/blacklisted phone as new.
BST thread; 404-2481699/#p34842703
He was selling a Brand New directly bought from Fido iPhone 12 Mini for $900. I went and met with him, paid him his asking price and picked up the phone for my sister. Brought it home and gave it to her, she placed her SIM card in it and the phone wouldn't register on the network. Turns out the phone is BLACKLISTED by Fido as stolen/lost.
ALEXANISH is now claiming he bought the phone from someone else and sold it to me. That I should have done my due diligence before buying and he cannot do anything about it anymore.
I have requested ALEXANISH to give me my full refund and he can deal with the person he bought it from. Unfortunately he isn't receptive to that and is asking me to not contact him anymore or else he will file a police report of threat! Albeit no threats given. I would be more than happy to paste the back and forth message communication with him here.
