Is That Laptop Stolen?! Signs That Your Preowned Device Was Lifted

The Seller Refuses to Reveal the Serial Number


The serial number for a laptop can be used to see if the device was stolen. If a seller says that they don’t have the serial number or otherwise acts shady about giving you the serial number, the device was probably stolen. If you are able to get a serial number on a used device, always check the serial number online to find out whether the device is on any stolen lists.
