When activating a new  or factory-reset iphone, it asks for your Apple ID and password to access and restore any iCloud/iTunes data to the new  device. This does NOT indicate the phone was stolen - it's asking for YOUR AppleID.

THEIR IS NO WORK AROUND>The lock activation is on because the phone has been reported stolen or misplaced.  The phone is useless to you until the original registered owner of the phone provides their Apple ID.

You can take it to a verizon wireless and they will type in the IMEI or Serial # and locate the owner for you.

If the outside of the phone lists a number for you to call which is most likely the scenario, you will never be able to use it. If this is the case I recommend you call the number as I bet they will  provide you with a reward for its return.
