If this guy knowingly sold you a phone he has or had reported stolen then you do have a solid leg to stand on. I would begin with you local law enforcement. IMEI numbers, IP Addresses and subpoenas to devuldge info on the Swappa users account will gain them all the info they need to proceed with filing charges. What's even better is I'm assuming most likely the phone you bought came from out of state so crossing a state line now opens the door for federal statutes. You might be surprised how willing and eager your local law enforcement might be to handle this for you, especially if you have your ducks in a row and necessary info on hand prior to your meeting with them.
I'm sorry your local law enforcement has made you feel that way. Could it possibly be because you local law enforcement has dealt with enough unappreciative people as you seem to be that they don't care to go the extra mile any longer. I've been an active law enforcement officer for the better part of my life and people such as yourself making comments like that make we wish I would have pursued another career also.
I AM local law enforcement. 200 people get Apple picked a day. You honestly think that resources are being spent on cellphone recovery? Maybe if you live in the boondocks they'd have the time to invest on this. Where I work, detectives don't chase down cellphones unless they are taken in armed robberies, and that's to get the weapon not the cellphone. Time gets spent on shootings, stabbings, burglaries etc. You lead people here to believe that their local law enforcement is going to go all out over some guy selling them a bad phone, and I'll just tell them how it's really going to go down. And if my earlier post made you wish you chose a different career path then maybe you should have studied harder for the fire fighters exam.
