I am just posting this to raise awareness. I used apple products all my life and I still do. I live in Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Was back in Bangladesh when the iPhone 6s released. Being an Apple fanboy, I couldn't wait to come back here in LA so bought my iPhone 6s Plus from Gadget&Gear. Used it for a year and as usual no complaints about apple products. Recently when I entered US after 3 months yesterday the police came to me and said I was being arrested for using a stolen or unpaid phone. I gave them the receipt and they let me go. So basically gadget and gear bought an iPhone from store's like Verizon or T- Mobile and didn't pay the bills. Instead they brought this to Bangladesh and sold it for twice the money. They know the US police won't be able to do anything because Bangladesh is not in their jurisdiction. So this is our favorite Gadget&Gear.
how did lapd find that phone? from IMEI number+IMEI matched sim tracking?
also... what exactly happened? was it actually stolen or broken contract phone?
