Just been scammed - how do i have a phone i sold IMEI blocked?
Just been scammed by the gumtree / Paypal scam (as I have just found out). The phone i 'sold' is in transit by post now. How to I have the IMEI blocked so that at least the phone is useless to them?
Look up "paypal tracking number before payment" scam and you will see what I mean!

Quickest way would be to contact Telstra on 13 22 00 and have your IMEI number ready to block. Just report it as stolen.
You can then check https://amta.org.au/check-the-status-of-your-handset/ the status of that mobile (I believe it can take about a month to show up there)
