If it was payed for with a credit card it should be easy to prove to the cops you didn't steal it and they should be able to catch the real thief. At least easier than explaining to your wife why it is not right to buy a birthday present for you with your money.

$900, seriously? Fuck me dead, I thought the whole point of buying stolen goods is that they're substantially cheaper than the standard retail price. I mean, not that I speak from experience.

How do you buy stolen goods with a credit card? Does the criminal have an EFTPOS machine? Just call your bank and have the transaction reversed - simple.

Simple: stolen goods sold to a shady shop (GSM shops are all around Europe, not sure about the US. In Europe most of them are run by immigrants from arabic countries who don't mind buying up stolen shit), and shop sells to unsuspecting wife.

My question is, if they were apparently able to track the phone to the OP's house shouldn't they also have been able to track it to whatever shop it was sold to? If they could see in the tracking history that it had gone to a shop than there is no reason they would have shown up and accused the OP of stealing the phone. Plus why wouldn't the wife have realized something was off due to the lack of proper packaging and the like and questioned why she was paying full price, or possibly more than full price, for a clearly second hand phone? If she's willing to pay $900 for a second hand phone, why wouldn't she just go pay $900 for a new one?
