Beware of purchasing mobiles from unknown persons

One should always purchase a mobile from an authorised dealer with proper receipt or from a known person only. Recently two persons at Bangalore have been caught as they sold stolen mobiles. Unemployed as they were, they thought of stealing and succeeded in stealing 70 cellphones from a shop. They could not sell many for fear of being caught as the police was looking for the thief. They ultimately thought of donating some of these to their friends or relatives. Because of the IMEI numbers provided by the shopkeeper the police could trace one of these cells and on enquiry the person named who donated this mobile. This is how the police could trace the thieves.

KSR members it should caution us against purchasing mobiles from unknown persons.
