    Bought Samsung 8s Plus in october 2017 Samsung s8 Plus black the phone off for shop and have been using it since then. Yesterday (18 April 2018 ) phone stopped working, so I called my provider o2 and they told me t-mobile/EE had blacklisted/blocked the phone. I explained this situation and o2 advised i contact T Mobile.

    2nd call to EE – Tried a different number and got through to a UK call centre, she explained to me that there is not much she can do either. I asked if the phone was black listed because of non contract payment or because reported lost or stolen, she explained that IMEI’s dont get blocked because of contract payment problems, they only get blockked if reported lost or stolen.

    3rd call – Phone Police for some advise and they told me its a grey area and that they can not do anything either, and that I shoudl be asking T Mobile to help me better as in give me information why it got IMEI blocked.
    So Im here now with a phone I paid £600 for a few 6 months ago that wont work no matter what I do or who I call, After
    So Im guessing that the original owner is pulling a fast one on insurance and me, by committing fraud to get a new handset or something.
    Please help me, no idea what to do, cant afford a new phone, need a phone especially
    And no one is seem to be helping me
    Unfortunately there is nothing you can do and you are right you are a victim of fraud.
    Can you help me
