TechGator does not buy phones that have been lost or stolen. If we find a device that has been lost or stolen we try to contact the owner. If your device has been lost or stolen make sure to report this to your service provider and the police. They can make sure that the phone cannot be accessed by another user. Many phones nowadays come with a remote lock system that allows you to erase your personal information if lost or stolen. These phones even display a message on the screen stating the contact number of the owner. If we find any such device which is locked and has contact information of the real owner, we will contact you. After verification that the device is indeed yours we will return the product to you free of charge!
We do not purchase any devices reported lost or stolen. We use a tool called CheckMEND to scan all the devices we receive. CheckMEND contains information from mobile phone carriers, insurance companies and law enforcement. CheckMEND detects any smartphones, tablets and computers that might be stolen or lost. It accumulates data from law enforcement agencies (including FBI), insurance companies and the leading mobile phone carriers to create a database of devices that are reported stolen and lost. SellMac uses CheckMEND for all of its devices. TechGator also assists law enforcement agencies for investigating stolen or lost devices. We record the electronic serial number for all our devices. For items that are under investigation we assist the law enforcement by providing the trail. Our online trade in process also requires our customers to confirm that the device is theirs and is not reported stolen or lost.
Apart from a fully operating charger you do not need to send us anything. The price we offer to you is only for the charger and device. Please note if you accidentally send us other accessories such as headphones or anything else we will not be able to return it to you. Before inspection these items are usually discarded.
