Is it legal to buy and resell cellphones/electronics?

Fort Lauderdale, FL |

I own a small electronics shop. Is it legal to buy and resell cellphones/electronics? Or I need some kind of license? How can I protect myself if I unknowingly buy stolen or lost electronics?

  1. You need to do your due diligence and protect yourself and/or your company. If you know the electronics are being stolen, you may get in trouble. A good way to protect yourself is by having a contract with the people/companies you deal with.
