Hi, I am in the process of buying a second hand phone from gumtree. The phone I'm going to buy is quite expensive so I can't afford to be scammed. The phone is very new and so I don't want the seller to report it stolen after I buy it and then be left without a phone. If I get his receipt, is that ok? Also I'll check the phone's IMEI beforehand as well. What else can I do to make sure that I won't be scammed?

Can you not buy used ones from the mobile phone providers themselves? I'm honestly just guessing here, but do places like Carphone Warehouse not sell 2nd hand devices?
