second hand tablet, how can I check that it won't be locked

Hi, I am writing because I want to buy a second hand tablet via eBay but I saw that Samsung can lock a tablet permanently if the first buyer does not pay all the monthly payments (can someone confirm?)

Is there a way for me to verify before I buy that the tablet is cleared and won't be locked after a month? In particular if the seller does not have the original purchase receipt.

Some of the sellers for example told me that they didn't have a receipt because purchased via Samsung.com

No there isn't a way to do that unfortunately. Best advice is not to risk it and save longer for a new one of your own

If purchased from Samsung.com, they do give the buyer an email receipt. So if they say they haven't got it then I wouldn't trust them. So wouldn't buy anything off them.

try buying via a good second hand webshop ( I use computer exchange, cex) at least you have somewhere to go to if the tablet is blocked, or probably they know how to check it out)
