Default IMEI added to blacklist by Tmoible

I bought my LG G2 exactly 30 days ago (11/23/13) from this local store http://www.cltcellrepair.com/?noredirect , they advertised it as brand new on Craigslist, I paid $450, about the same price as if I buy from Ebay, since it is local store with good Google reviews, so I went with them.

The phone works very well, really love the phone. After exactly 30 days, this afternoon the phone stopped working, it won't register to Tmobile network. I rebooted it a couple times, still won't work. After I called Tmobile, they asked me where I bought it, they said the previous owner stopped paying Tmobile , so the IMEI was being blocked.

I pulled out the receipt, it has a 30 days warranty on parts and labor. I called the shop, they closed for the holiday until Friday

Did anyone else have similar experience? Am I scammed by this shop? What shall I do if the shop refuse to cooperate?

Thanks for your suggestions.

First thing I would do is file a police report at the Charlotte n.c. police department. Next I would have the officer go their with you to try and resolve the issue. You will need something in writing from tmobile or some type of proof. The seller will probably cooperate.
