When you buy UK-used photos, there is the high possibility that you are purchasing a stolen property which might put you at risk.
Sun investigators discovered ‘UK used’ iPhones for sale in Nigeria’s largest city amid Britain’s epidemic of moped yobs, often armed with acid, robbing pedestrians of their smartphones
Moped thugs are snatching tens of thousands of phones on UK streets to supply a booming black market run by crime lords in Nigeria. The mobiles, seized by acid-armed yobs, are shipped 4,500 miles to be sold for up to £560 to Nigeria’s tech-starved middle classes.

Sun investigators discovered “UK used” iPhones being sold for £560 in stores and markets in Nigeria’s largest city Lagos. Business is booming for the Nigerian racketeers because of soaring demand from the oil-rich middle classes in a country where hi-tech gadgets are relatively scarce.
