    Scammed....... 7th Nov 12 at 4:07 PM
    Just a quick word of warning.....
    My son told me he wanted to buy a mobile phone 2nd hand and that there is a section on facebook where you can buy and sell locally. He found one for 40 and seeing as it was just down the road handed over 40 cash.

    Got home and realised there was no sim so went and purchased one from the shop (1) popped new sim in....nothing....usually a few txts come through with the new settings on so we waited 24hrs.

    After this time and still no txtx i called Tmobile for him and after 2HRS (most of which was them trying to get me to purchase a bolt on for said phone) they told me it had been blocked and therefore had been reposrted lost or stolen!!!!!

    Obviously when contacting the 'seller' they said it was 'nothing to do with them' and they were 'selling it for a friend' Yeh right.

    Valuable lesson learnt for my 15 yr old!!!
