Bought an iPad on OfferUp and it’s iCloud locked
I bought an iPad off of OfferUp. Needless to say I bought an iPad with an activation lock. I didn’t get the persons phone number I only communicated via the app. Needless to say they went ghost on me when I messaged them back about the lock.
I’ve taken it to my local police station to report it possibly being stolen but a few days later they called me back to pick it up because there is no record of theft for that device.
Bottom line is I spent $250 and I’m a little upset I can’t access the iPad for obvious reasons. I feel like I’ve done my due diligence by attempting to contact the person who sold it to me and taking it to the police.
Give it to me straight apple lovers. Am I completely screwed?
Edit – Thanks most of you for going Steve Jobs on me. Only Apple lovers will understand the reference.
