Who I have the same questioned this topic

Blacklisted IMEI
Enthusiast - Level 1
I recently purchased my iPhone 14 pro from a local on Facebook marketplace. Prior to purchasing, the phone wasn’t locked nor blacklisted and everything was perfectly fine. That was  until I tried to switch my networking services from the older device to the newer iPhone 14 pro.   So I contacted my carrier and apple and I got to know that the seller reported it stolen or lost  and did some sort of fraud linked to Verizon and made it blacklisted. This leaves me  stuck with a brick device essentially and upon researching, it was said that only Verizon can help me with with this. I can provide payment and chat proof that shows that I purchased the phone from that person. Please please please help me as I have no other options and I am just a high school student with no other alternatives.
Kind Regards,
