What Happens if I (Unknowingly) buy a Stolen PS3?

19 replies
Found 11th Aug 2008
Since the deal from buyithere does not seem to be true anymore, I am looking to buy else where and found a couple on gumtree, found one for just over 230quids, brand new unopened, my questions is:

If its stolen, will I be able to register it with sony, and how can I check?

Seller says he got it as a gift and he already has one.

caveat emptor

let the buyer beware......

if it's too good to be true it usually is

not in the case of stolen property it isn't

I pick up bargains all the time that alot of people would consider too good to be true

i got a ps3 for £100 of a friend of a friend, i have rented mgs4 for the week so gonna hammer it and then sell it for £250 or something on ebay (its the 60gb ps2 version)

of course as with any internet sale over £50 i would try and do it cash on collection so you don't get swindled!

yep, you'll get a 360 lol.

that's analogous to buying a stolen ferrari and ending up with a mondeo!

You hang on to your bar of soap very tightly in the prison showers...

yeah then go for it you have nothing to lose except maybe a little bit of time so do it only if he lives close, by chasing the seemingly too good to be true deals in my time i have done very well whilst the people who worry and do nothing sit at home and miss out

Bunch of theives and conmen. I would never buy anything like, not because I am scared but because it's a matter of principle, I do not like having anything to do with theives. I am a well educated person and to be associated with people like that - well thats just the worst insult anyone can ever give.

I won't be buying anything of you........

I never said it was stolen

Should be less than £200 if it's stolen.

It certainly seemed that is what you were insinuating!

debatable

Although thieves look for a quick sale, a PS3 under £200 doesnt warrant to be a stolen one
