Highly unlikely somebody would be able to fabric a receipt.. I would know from phone shop experience.

This happened to me once.. If you have the genuine receipt, take a screenshot of the ad, and get all the info on the guy who scammed you as you can.
Take all this paperwork to the network and prove he sold you the phone. They will unblacklist it

Don't be hesitant to call and try to get it figured out. You can't be charged for buying/dealing in stolen property if you truly did not know it was stolen. The mental intent to buy a stolen device would be needed for you to actually commit a crime. However, now that you know the rig is hot, you should to contact the carrier to try and get everything worked out. And as far as all this mumbo jumbo about the receipt....receipts don't mean a whole lot when you consider the fact that modern thieves are very capable of forging authentic looking receipts when they deal in stolen property to take advantage of innocent customers like the OP. Good luck man.

Precisely my point, which seems to be lost on some posters here.
