I am fairly certain it will work, and Verizon has a new policy that will allow non-Verizon phones that are unlocked onto their network, as long as it supports the LTE bands and CDMA bands required by Verizon. Not many phones meet this criteria, but the iPhone 6 does.

I am leery to say yes simply because he got it from a 3rd party and it's intended for AT&T. He made no mention it was unlocked.

Some people have said they successfully activated and used an AT&T branded iPhone 6 on Verizon. Won't hurt to insert your SIM card and see.
