It was recently found that an iPhone that had been stolen  was sold by Amazon!

So much for reliability!

A Customer found this whenhe tried to activate the iPhone.

I bought my my Mom an iPhone for Christmas off Amazon and when she tried to activate it they told her it had been stolen.

Ben had bought the phone off Amazon, one of their refurbished warehouse deals—which are usually smart buys. (Buying refurbished Apple gear is always a good call.) This time, however, it turned out to be a raw deal. Sorry, Ben’s mom; we hope you have a merry Christmas and get issue this resolved quickly—you’ve got to load up that new phone with awesome apps!

This was probably an honest mistake—Amazon is a stand-up company. We’ve reached out for comment, but, you know, it’s Christmas Day, so we’re not holding our breath. Ben has already contacted Amazon, and they said to return the thing.
