Nope, Always a risk second hand.
How about the warrenty?
You'll still have some warranty, If you must buy second hand you're maybe better buying from a shop, Least then if it gets blocked theirs more chance of them exchanging/refunding you etc..

It's risky from places like ebay etc.. as they can be blocked a few months down the line when they stop paying contract or report lost/stolen etc..

Not all are scammers but risky.
Have you compared the price to smartfonestore? They check with checkmend, check icloud has been logged out and offer a lifetime guarantee against these issues.
Their prices for six plus were insane(ly cheap - £630 instead of £789 grade A).
Buying phones is risky, especially new premium devices - so I'd only trust a company like them for piece of mind
cheers for all your help.... plus is to big for me. going for 6 from apple..... might aswell pay the extra 100 for piece of mind
too many contract bumps......
In the end i decided to go apple and pay full price!!
