Comment Ebays fault (Score 1) 282

Having just purchased a stolen phone on ebay (the Police are looking into it), and having now read up on how easy it is to sell a stolen phone in the tat bazzar, it does seem to be ebays problem, as they are not doing enough to stop it. For starters sellers should have to register the IMEI number with ebay who automatically check it against the stolen list before it goes up for sale. When reported stolen the phone is locked it all countries not just the UK.

But it is also down to the owner for not securing it using the phones security features, and also keeping the £500 item safely locked away. Waving a wad of £500 around in the air in the middle of a busy street is asking for trouble yet plp do it with $700 iphones.
