blacklisted phones


i bought an Android phone from Kijiji and i check IMEI status when i bought it. there was no problem during 2 weeks. One day i just realised that it stopped working. so i went to Samsung service center and they told me it is on the Blacklist. so i send a message to the seller and she told me that she will handle it so wait 2 weeks. i asked her why you reported it as a stolen phone and she answered she didn't do it Koodo did it. all i can do is just trust her and wait until it gets back...it's been 9 days after it happens... do you guys think that she makes it back?

Do you yourself think she will? 

It probably got blacklisted because it was stolen... so I'm afraid you might have bought a dud. Your best bet is to ask her again.

 - Ask her again who bought the phone originally.  If she is the original owner, then  she is the one requested her phone to be black listed.

Or she bought it and canceled without paying for it. Then Koodo might put it black listed.  
Or she got it some different way...

Either way, you have to contact her and ask her how she got it (even ask for the receipt or proof of payment.)
