Buying a used mobile phone? Check it out first!

When you’re buying anything second hand you often only know what the seller tells you. Consumers are getting smarter however, for example many people will use an HPI check service when purchasing a second hand car to check it’s not stolen and has no outstanding finance. With top mobiles regularly changing hands for hundreds of pounds it makes sense to check you’re not buying stolen goods before handing over your cash.

Global Consensus offer a free service to consumers allowing you to check up to three mobile phones every month. This gives access to worldwide data showing the block status of a mobile phone. By carrying out a check first you can make sure you’re not spending money on a phone that you won’t be able to use as reported stolen mobiles are blocked.

A quarter of a million mobile phones are reported stolen in the UK every year and many of these will be stolen by thieves so it’s not uncommon to purchase a used mobile phone only to find it is stolen. Using the Global Consensus service will provide you with a Global Consensus Consumer Certificate guaranteeing the status of the device at the time of the check.

If you’re selling a mobile phone then providing a Global Consensus Consumer Certificate can help to demonstrate to the buyer that the phone is not stolen.
